Resolve Prosa2003 installation issues

If the Prosa test case doesn't work, you should first try whether you can run Prosa stand-alone:

cd /usr/local/share/Prosa2003
bin/prosa2003

This should pop up a minimal graphical window.

Issue 1: /prosa2003.bin: not found

On an Ubuntu 7.04 system, we got the following error:

test: 36: ==: unexpected operator
/usr/local/lib/prosa2003/bin/prosa2003: 55: /prosa2003.bin: not found

Apparently, the sh installed with Ubuntu doesn't recognize the first test statement in the prosa2003 shell script.

Solution:

  • Remove the following lines from ./bin/prosa2003:

    if ! test x"$DEV_BASE" == "x"
    then
        EXTERNALS=$DEV_BASE/External
        EXECUTABLE=$DEV_BASE/prosa2003.bin
        PYTHON=/usr/bin/python
        PROSAGUI=$DEV_BASE/gui.py
    else
    
  • and remove the closure of the if-clause further down:
