Multiple Versions of ns3 in Ubuntu 22.04 In this post, we are going to install two versions of ns3 namely ns-3.35 and ns-3.37  My OS is : Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long Term Support) ns-3.35 uses waf and (./waf --run scratch/first)  ns-3.37 uses cmake  (./ns3 run scratch/first.cc) So we will install both the packages  Go through the video for complete instructions To start with  $ sudo apt update  $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev g++ python3 python3-dev pkg-config sqlite3 cmake python3-setuptools git qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar gsl-bin libgsl-dev libgslcblas0 wireshark tcpdump sqlite sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev  libxml2 libxml2-dev libc6-dev libc6-dev-i386 libclang-dev llvm-dev automake python3-pip libxml2 libxml2-dev libboost-all-dev  I have downloaded both the versions of ns3 fr

Installation Instructions for Network Simulator 2

The ns2 version taken here is 2.31, if you downloaded any other version, please modify your version during installation

1)Uncompress the ns2

tar zxvf ns-allinone-2.31.tar.gz
or
gzip -d ns-allinone-2.31.tar.gz
tar xvf ns-allinone-2.31.tar

2) cd /opt/ns-allinone-2.31 (since /opt is the folder which is unused, so i have selected that folder to install, however you can install that in any folder)

3) ./install (execute the command)

4) If the installation fails in the middle, then try to install the linux packages that are

necessary to run NS2. (In any linux (ubuntu or fedora or redhat or suse), install the TCL/TK, Perl packages during the installation of linux...)

5) Once the installation succeeded, then the path information will be provided by the NS2

6) Set the path in the /root/.bash_profile
(vi /root/.bash_profile)

or
If you are a user home//.bash_profile (for example, if your the username is tsp, then execute this command vi /home/tsp/.bash_profile)
7) set the PATH and the LD_LIBRARY_PATH according to the point number 11.

8) logout and login.

9) go to the terminal and try ns or nam

10) for running the examples comes along with the distribution of NS2
cd /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/ns-2.31/tcl/ex

11. This is how you will see once the ns2 installation is success, from this information, you can put the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable..

////////////////This is the successful installation of the NS2 package

Ns-allinone package has been installed successfully.
Here are the installation places:
tcl8.4.14: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/{bin,include,lib}
tk8.4.14: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/{bin,include,lib}
otcl: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/otcl-1.13
tclcl: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/tclcl-1.19
ns: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/ns-2.31/ns
nam: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/nam-1.13/nam
xgraph: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/xgraph-12.1
gt-itm: /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/itm, edriver, sgb2alt, sgb2ns, sgb2comns, sgb2hierns

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please put /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/bin:/opt/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/unix:/opt/ns-allinone-2.31/tk8.4.14/unix
into your PATH environment; so that you'll be able to run itm/tclsh/wish/xgraph.

IMPORTANT NOTICES:

(1) You MUST put /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/otcl-1.13, /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/lib,
into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

If it complains about X libraries, add path to your X libraries
into LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
If you are using csh, you can set it like:
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH
If you are using sh, you can set it like:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=

(2) You MUST put /opt/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/library into your TCL_LIBRARY environmental

variable. Otherwise ns/nam will complain during startup.


After these steps, you can now run the ns validation suite with
cd ns-2.31; ./validate

For trouble shooting, please first read ns problems page

http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/ns/ns-problems.html. Also search the ns mailing list archive
for related posts.
