In my struggle to install demeter under ubuntu 16.04 I'm slowly 
advancing. I think some of the packages that were supposed to be 
installed following the first line of the protocol were incomplete. I 
have redone this and have now managed to build the dathena and other 
files, but when I want to start it I get the following error message:

"marquinhos at marquinhos-Lapi:~/demeter$ bin/dathena

Could not find Larch Server -- falling back to Ifeffit
Can't locate object method "new" via package "Graphics::GnuplotIF" at 
/home/marquinhos/perl5/lib/perl5/i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int/Demeter.pm line 239.

Can't exec "-p": No such file or directory at 
/home/marquinhos/perl5/lib/perl5/i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int/Larch.pm line 270.

any ideas what might be the problem?

many thanks
