Dear all,

I'm back with a question to our bioinfo gurus. I'm trying to install the new Clustal Omega on my Ubuntu OS. However, I get the following error:

checking argtable2.h usability... no
checking argtable2.h presence... no
checking for argtable2.h... no
configure: error: Could not find argtable2.h. Try $ ./configure CFLAGS='-Iyour-argtable2-include-path

As far as I discovered, argtable2.h an ANSI C library for parsing GNU style command line, but I cannot find how to install it. Can anyone give me an answer?

Thanks,

Sakti

Hey Sakti,

The general answer for these sorts of questions is either

  • to use the Ubuntu package search to "Search the contents of packages".

  • use apt-file search from the commandline to find package with the right library (you may need to install apt-file)

In this case you are looking for libargtable2-dev

Note that Clustal Omega is as also part of the Ubuntu package repositories, i.e. it's directly installable without need for compilation, just as libargtable.

So it is! sudo apt-get install clustalo.

More generally: file that end with .h are header files and are typically found in development packages, which usually start with lib- and end with -dev. So "apt-cache search argtable2" leads you to libargtable2-dev.
