Radiance installation on Ubuntu 12.04

I am trying to manually install the 'radiance-4.2.a-Linux.tar32' compiled binaries currently available from the NREL site.

The issue:

When I run 'trad' in the terminal I get an error related to 'wish0.4' which is not in the 'usr/local' folder as expected.

Any help please ?

Should I manually change a path variable to point to the right folder where wish0.4 is (still I don't know where) ?

Hi Luca,

you need TCL and TK version 8.x. Please have a look at this page:

Hi Luca,

I suspect you are "lbag" on the OpenStudio forum. =)
