Hello! I seem to have installed FairSoft on my Ubuntu, because I get the message, "root compiled successfully".  But then, I get the error, "Downloading zeromq resources... unpacking zeromq-3.2.4.tar.gz... --E-- cannot unpack package zeromq". I went ahead and set the SIMPATH. To check the installation, I typed "root" at the terminal, when I get the message, "The program 'root' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt install root-system-bin". I do see a binary, "root" in the directory ~/buildFairSoft/bin. I have gcc 4.9.4 and I am trying to install Root 5. As I am a novice as far as Linux is concerned, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try to execute the following command:

In case the download fails, most probably you are behind a firewall. In this case, before installing FairSoft, execute:
export HTTP_PROXY=proxyname:port
export HTTPS_PROXY=proxyname:port

where proxy name and port are specific to your network configuration.

SIMPATH is required for FairRoot installation, during which a script will be generated. This script will set up the environment.

If you want to use only ROOT, you need following:
source ~/buildFairSoft/bin/
