I am a system manager at Bologna Astronomical Software and i am
interested into using skycat with UBUNTU TRUSTY 14.04.

I installed skycat via apt-get install with the dependencies, but when I
run skycat the following message is displayed :

Error in startup script: couldn't load file
"/usr/lib/skycat/": cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
    while executing
"load /usr/lib/skycat/ Skycat"
    ("package ifneeded Skycat 3.1.2" script)
    invoked from within
"package require Skycat"
    (file "/usr/share/skycat/skycat3.1.2/main.tcl" line 7)

I have in /usr/lib and I tried with a symbolic link
to have but the error message slightly changes
suggesting that it is installed a TCL version 8.5 and skycat requires

I browsed Internet to find suggestion without success, could you help
me ?

The Best Regards
