If your system is 64-bit it is likely that you do not have the 32-bit version of libXaw. Try getting the libXaw.i386 package if this is the case. –  HostileFork Jan 31 '16 at 1:45      Correction: the 64-bit build is not of view, but of core...the comments ask for view. –  HostileFork Jan 31 '16 at 4:05      @HostileFork ,Tried to install libxaw.i386 here is what i'm getting : Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package libXaw.i386 E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libXaw.i386' –  VMur Jan 31 '16 at 20:03      According to the below you might need a 7 on the libxaw. Note that for things like not being able to get X-Windows 32-bit

These are the steps I took to get R2 core and view working on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty," so I would imagine that this would also work on Freya: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386

sudo apt-get install libxext6:i386

sudo apt-get install libxaw7:i386

sudo apt-get install libfreetype6:i386

sudo apt-get install xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi

(I prefer to keep the package install steps separate in case one of them fails.)

(which apparently /Core cannot do). I have managed to install all the required dependencies, but now I suspect, by default, /View wants to open the Viewtop desktop. The error I get is: ** User Error: Bad face in screen pane!** Near: size-t
