Hi everybody my name is Nicolò and I'm an italian mechanical engineer.

I'm trying to use salome 9.3  for Linux Ubuntu 18.04 64-bits on my Ubuntu 19.04 .

But when I launch it from the terminal this happens:

/home/gnicche/SALOME/salome:362: DeprecationWarning: the imp module is deprecated in favour of importlib; see the module's documentation for alternative uses
  import imp
runSalome running on gnicche-HP-Laptop-15-db0xxx

--- Error during Salome launch ---

Can someone help me?

Thank you

Hi Nicoló,

apparently there are two missing files: netstat and

netstat is found in net-tools package.

# sudo apt-get install net-tools is found in libopengl0 package

# sudo apt-get install -y libopengl0

Hope this helps.
