  2. Hello , Thank you for the Amazing tutorial!

    I faced an error while installing Xgraph , "segmentation fault (core dumped) ",
    and when I type
    >> whereis xgraph
    there is only one path which is the ns-allinone ,

    I tried to download it separately from http://www.xgraph.org/linux/index.html for linux 64 but could not install it correctly after unpackged it and "E: unable to locate package xgraph" message appeared !

    Could you suggest a solution for that ?

    Many thanks
