Hi,

RepeatMasker seems to install properly, see the following message. However still it is same above error showing...

 

Congratulations!  RepeatMasker is now ready to use.
The program is installed with a full version of the repeat library:
  DFAM Library Version = Dfam_1.2
  RMLibrary Version = 20150807
  Repbase Version = 20150807
Further documentation on the program may be found here:
  /home/sekhwalm/Downloads/RepeatMasker/repeatmasker.help

Take a look at the error messages, they indicate that RM is not installed properly because it can't find the species library file and there is a problem loading a system library. You'll have to work on those issues individually, and I suggest running some tests to see it is working. Also, respond to comments by hitting reply, not posting a comment as an answer.

This looks like it might be a link to a pirated book chapter. Maybe it would be better to link to the repeatmasker site?

The only argument you need is the genome:

RepeatMasker genome.fas

There are other options to refine the masking to one species, repeat type, or incorporate a custom repeat library (simply typing the name of the program will tell you the usage).

There are at least two issues with your installation: missing dependencies (blast), and missing libraries or incompatible libraries for the version of RM you downloaded. I'd suggest following all the steps to install RM, and search the web for the common causes of these errors (you should find a solution very quickly).

thanks. Now It runs....RepeatMasker is required combination of ncbi-blast and rmblast-2.2.28.
