Issues installing OF via Terminal

Hello,

I’m starting with OF and I can’t achieve to install on Ubuntu 16.04 64 bits via Terminal.

After typing the sudo ./install_dependencies.sh command it says I’m running gcc 5 compiler that seems too recent and due to incompatible ABI with previous version it needs to recompile poco

… but fail with after downloading:

poco.sh: line 36: curl: command not found
with receiving error:
logname: no login name
chown: cannot access “build/poco”: No such file or directory

I’m really disappointed with this bad start.
This is not my first attempt. I tryed to manually install curl or recompile poco without success (knowing I am a noob).

Has anyone ever done beyond on ubuntu?
At least on Linux?

Many thanks for your advices.

can you try the gcc5 version of the nightly builds? not sure why logname is failing but in any case 0.9.8 won’t receive more fixes since 0.10 is almost ready so you are better of using the nightly builds if 0.9.8 doesn’t work right away for you

Hey I’m having the exact same issue. Did you manage to fix this?
I need to use 0.9.8 on Ubuntu Is it not possible?

EDIT : I could fix it by installing curl with the command below.

sudo apt-get install curl

Thanks!
