Talk:Building ASCEND

Jump to: navigation, search

In the section "General Instructions" the point where an option is given to use INSTALL_PREFIX=~/ascend or ~, in case of no root privileges, I think that even installing on those paths requires copying certain *.so files to "/usr/lib/python*/dist-packages/" which requires root privileges.

In the section mentioning required packages for building, it should be mentioned to install "lyx" as well or to use the option "WITH_DOC_BUILD=0" (this is mentioned in section "Ubuntu 8.04 LTS" but isn't quite obvious in newer versions)
