Dear all,

coming from RedHat Linux, I have a difficult time to install the latest 
nightly phenix build on a 64bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS notebook. (I must 
confess that I did not try any older or stable releases, like 1.8.1)

The reason why I did not install SL6 on the notebook is that it comes 
with Windows installed on fake RAID. Since I don't want to get rid of 
Windows completely, and thus can only take half of the disk for Linux, I

as the FC8 FC12 FC14 installers. Installation works, but upon startup

So I tried the source installer, but that fails with
   ERROR: installation of xrender failed
   ERROR: installation of xft failed
   ERROR: installation of cairo failed
   ERROR: installation of pango failed
   ERROR: installation of gtk failed
   ERROR: installation of gtk-engine failed
   ERROR: installation of wxgtk failed
   ERROR: installation of wxpython failed

So I believe I should apt-get install certain packages. Does anyone know 
which ones?
