Installing OPNET in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Besides the OPNET inc. say that you should use Red Hat to istall OPNET Transport Planner, I’ve tested in Ubuntu and it works well. My steps of instalation were the following:
(I assume the .bin files are already downloaded)
a) Login as root;
b) Install the OPNET SP GURU Transport Planner:
obs.: I chose the /usr/opnet as destination folder.
c) Install the documentation:
d) Set the user’s PATH variable to point to the directory where the SP Guru Transport Planner binary executable files are stored.
# pico /root/.bashrc
and add this line in the file
e) Changing the default shell for root user. (OPNET requires csh, but the default of Ubuntu is bash).
and change the path to /etc/csh
Finally, I create a shortcut on the Desktop, which the command on launcher is /usr/opnet/15.0.A/sys/unix/bin/spgtranplan
At the first time I started OPNET, I had to configure add a license. After that, all is working fine.
