It's strange, cause I run gretl 1.9.5 on Ubuntu 11.04 and I see the
options in the menu.
I had also your problems.
The package in the repository is faulty and I downloaded and installed
the latest version from the repository of Debian testing:
Try the following:
- open Synaptic, search for gretl in the list and remove completely all
the deb packages related with it;
- download and reinstall the debian packages
By the way, for some features related with time series you need to
install also the following packages:

Hi, I am quite new to Ubuntu so I apologize for any kind of dumb
questions I might ask in this post. However, I've been using gretl on my
prevoius OS (Windows XP) and after a long procedure that allowed me to
install a working version of gretl in Ubuntu I noticed that it would not
feature menu items related to VECM and Cointegration Test functions,
whilst still having commands such es coint2 available via command line.
In both OS i use version 1.9.5. After featuring launch problems from the
UBUNTU software center (segmentation fault) I downloaded first the jar
available in debian list, version 1.9.5, here
and then installed several other packages that would seem to be required
(such as fft tools which I can't remember right now, unfortunately
Good news is that I now can run gretl in my Ubuntu OS, bad news is I
don't see those cointegration menus which I need.
I thus tried to install the windows version via Wine. it works fine and
shows all the menus, including the ones I need about Johansen test.
Versions are the same (1.9.5) the only difference being that the Windows
version, in its "about" window, has also the name "cvs" attached to
number of version, whilst the Ubuntu one hasn't.
Do you think there's a way I can try to get the same menu items in the
native ubuntu version of the software?
Thanks in advance
