Problems with Radiance installation in Linux Mint 19 and Ubuntu 18

Hello Everyone,

I’m trying to install Radiance 5.2 in Linux Mint and Ubuntu 18, and the following errors appear:

It seems that is something related to X11. I tried to reinstall again using the terminal command “sudo apt-get install libc6-dev” and warnings are still appearing.

At the end of the installation process say “There were some errors” and Radiance not working.

I really appreciate your help.

You need to install the X11 dev headers/libraries. This forum may have the answer, or Google. Search for “Linux x11-dev or something like that.

Hi Daniel,

stdio.h is a header for the Linux system runtime library You need the corresponding development package to compile pretty much anything, which will probably be named libc-dev or libc6-dev for a relatively recent release. As Rob pointed out, you may also need the x11 development package libx11-dev.

Happy compiling, :crazy_face:


Thank you Rob & Roland,

Finally it seems that my problem was the C libraries. Using “sudo apt-get install build-essential” it works.
