Python + ROOT in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx

Posted on May 9, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

I recently tried to get ROOT in Python (also known as PyROOT) working under the latest Ubuntu release (Lucid Lynx).

It took me a while until I figured out that I installing the Ubuntu package libroot-python5.18
was not sufficient but I also had to install libroot-python-dev in order to get it to work (i.e. do import ROOT from the python interpreter).
I also had to make sure that /usr/lib/root/5.18 was in my PYTHONPATH environment variable.
