Hi all,

I want to install Ulysses v0.9.3, a software for simulating electromagnetic fields of high voltage lines, as I need it for my final year project. So far there were some dependencies I installed, but there is still a problem; output of configure:

Coin configuration warnings:
* Your $PATH variable does not appear to include "/usr/local/bin"
Does the $PATH variable have to do with Ulysses configure not seeing the link to the library?

I read all INSTALL files, tried different commands that were advised, even installed practically all versions of Coin 3D library through Synaptic Package Manager, still not being able to install the software... I need your help, I'm a newbie!!!

Thank you for taking the time to read
