Installing JuliaPro on non english Ubuntu


#1

I had problems during the execution of install_juliapro.sh. So I looked inside the script and found some clauses, scanning an output for the pattern “installed” while checking the pre-requisites. The problem is, that the output depends on the systems language and the script wouldn’t identify the pre-requisites as installed when the output is not in english. My solution was to change the clauses in lines 69 and 71, replacing “installed” with the corresponding word in my systems language, “installiert” (german).
I hope this is helpful for other people.

In these cases, it’s better to force the language to English with LANG=C, if possible. I don’t think the script is going to cater for all possible languages. Or the criteria should be changed
