Ubigraph

Play the 36 second video on the home page. If you aren’t interested by the end of the video, you aren’t interested in graph processing.

Alpha software but impressive alpha software!

I grabbed the UbiGraph-alpha-0.2.4-Linux64-Ubuntu-8.04.tgz version, followed the directions you will find at Downloads and got:

bin/ubigraph_server: error while loading shared libraries: libglut.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am running Ubuntu 12.04.

This thread from foldit was helpful. About the seventh post down says:

2) the library I needed (libglut.so.3) was gotten using “sudo apt-get install freeglut3”

I knew I needed libglut.so.3 but here is where I find the name of the package that will show up in a search.

Loaded up aptitude and installed Freeglut.

Back to the command line in a fresh terminal window, and it works! (At least the Python demo anyway.)

Now to look at the manual, now that its running. ­čśë
