These steps has to be followed in specific order for successful installation or its almost inevitable to get some weird java errors.


  • JDK

    sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
  • ANT

    sudo apt-get install ant
  • Python

    sudo apt-get install python
  • subversion

    sudo apt-get install subversion
  • wget

    sudo apt-get install wget
  • SWIG

    sudo apt-get install swig
  • libantlr3c

  • unzip

    sudo apt-get install unzip

Now let us get the necessary packages to install libantlr3c.

svn co plasma.ThirdParty

Get Europa.


cd ~/plasma.ThirdParty

Install ANTLR-C

unzip libantlr3c-3.1.3.tar.bz2.
cd plasma.ThirdParty/libantlr3c-3.1.3
./configure --enable-64bit ; make> sudo make install

The above commands are for 64 bit machines. for 32 bit machines remove –enable-64bit flag.

Installing EUROPA.

mkdir ~/europa
cd ~/europaunzip ~/tmp/
export EUROPA_HOME=~/europaexport

Add the following lines to ~/.bashrc at the end.



$EUROPA_HOME/bin/makeproject Light ~
cd $EUROPA_HOME/examples/Light/

The Gui should appear for EUROPA.

If all the steps a correctly followed it should work.
