Third: ?

Should I continue somehow? I gave command 'locate elmer' but nothing was returned. So I still gave command 'sudo apt-get install elmerfem-csc'

xanadu@xanadui-HP-EliteBook-8540w:~$ sudo apt-get install elmerfem-csc

Hi Estiivan,
1. This means that the entire installation procedure is completed within the second steps.
2. As your installation is successful, please type

Code: Select all

$ ElmerGUI
in your terminal and check if it opens.

Yours Sincerely,
Anil Kunwar
