Hi Jaume,

This wiki page lists the prerequisites you need to install before building SCIRun on Ubuntu:

We are not supporting Ubuntu 11 at the moment due to a bug in the Tcl/Tk interpreter, which I am working on fixing. If you want to use Ubuntu, you will need to downgrade to Ubuntu 10.

I am a new student with Dana Brooks at Northeastern. I am currently trying
to install SCIRUN   to my ubuntu 11.04 system.

I downloaded the files through svn with the commands:
svn checkout --username anonymous SCIRun

and then I used the build script:

And got the output added at the end of the email.
I'm getting an error and I guess it's related to this:
CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are
set to NOTFOUND.

any suggestion about what might be the problem?
