### Installing NS2 in simple 5 steps

Posted on August 23 2009 by Venkatanathan

Step 1: Download the source for NS2 all in one (I used this version ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz ) from the link http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsnam/files/

Step 3: Open terminal (Applications–>Accessories–>Terminal) and change the directory (using cd command) to the extracted folder and execute the following:

sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev

This will install the dependencies required to compile NS2 from the source.

The following command is used to compile the source.

./install

It will take long time to compile all the required packages for ns to work…

Step 4: Setting Environmental Variables

Type in terminal:

gedit ~/.bashrc

and append the following text to the opened file (Please note that the path contains the path in my system, replace “venkat” in path with your username)

# LD_LIBRARY_PATH
OTCL_LIB=/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/otcl-1.13
NS2_LIB=/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/lib
X11_LIB=/usr/X11R6/lib
USR_LOCAL_LIB=/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$OTCL_LIB:$NS2_LIB:$X11_LIB:$USR_LOCAL_LIB # TCL_LIBRARY TCL_LIB=/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/tcl8.4.18/library USR_LIB=/usr/lib export TCL_LIBRARY=$TCL_LIB:$USR_LIB # PATH XGRAPH=/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/bin:/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/tcl8.4.18/unix:/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/tk8.4.18/unix NS=/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/ NAM=/home/venkat/ns-allinone-2.34/nam-1.14/ PATH=$PATH:$XGRAPH:$NS:\$NAM

Step 5: Now, after editing the file, save and close it. Then in terminal type:

source ~/.bashrc

Try “ns” command, it shud go to the “%” prompt then it just means the installation was successful! Enjoy

Note: These steps have been tested and worked like breeze in Ubuntu and is expected work in all the debian based linux.
