Installing Omnet in Ubuntu 10.10

To install Omnet on Ubuntu 10.10, the following are necessary

  • Java (jdk)
  • Gcc Compiler / G++ Compiler
  • zlibraries and other components

Here are the instructions

  • Download Omnet from  (the latest edition is 4.1)
  • Download the omnet-xxx.tgz file (its for linux)
  • Open the terminal, untar it to any folder in linux (in my case it is /home/pradeepkumar/) using the following command
  • tar zxvf omnet-xxx.tgz

  • go to the folder by this command cd omnet-xx/ (the above command creates a folder and untar all the contents into it)
  • execute the command ./configure
  • you may get some errors like unavailability of packages and dependencies, execute the following command to download and install all the packages
  • for running the following command, your machine has to be connected to the internet….

sudo apt-get install bison flex byacc zlib1g-dev tcl tk tcl8.4 tk8.4 tcl8.4-dev tk8.4-dev build-essentials libxmu-dev

  • once all are installed, type again ./configure (now this command will give some information to create a path)
    • Two paths has to be setup, PATH and TCL_LIBRARY
    • put the paths in the above file, /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc
    • go to any line of that file and type export PATH=$PATH: <the path provided after configure command> and similarly export TCL_LIBRARY=<the path provided>
  • Log off and log on (this is to detect the PATH variables)
  • open terminal, go to omnet-xx/ and type


That’s it, the software is installed and it will give you the command to type omnetpp to run the software.

(it goes into a terminal mode, which is faster compared to the GUI Mode)

$] sudo ./install-tl -gui
after the installation, set the PATH, MANPATH and INFOPATH as suggested by LATEX

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2019/bin/x86_64-linux
export MANPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/man
export INFOPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/info

put these lines in to the /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc

$] gedit /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc
We have installed TexLive 2019 and texstudio.

To install texstudio

$] sudo apt install texstudio
The look and feel of TexStudio looks like this image.
