Dear all,

I am currently facing a problem with Dynare 4.1.1 for Octave 3.2.3 under Ubuntu 10.04. I have installed Dynare using: “deb dynare.org/ubuntu lucid main contrib”.

## Following dynare.org/DynareWiki/Instal … anOrUbuntu I now should be able to launch Dynare with “dynare filename.mod”, but I guess I first have to indicate where the .mod files are located:

octave-3.2.3:1> dynare example1.mod

Configuring Dynare …

[mex] Generalized QZ.

[mex] Sylvester equation solution.

[mex] Kronecker products.

[mex] Sparse kronecker products.

[mex] Bytecode evaluation.

[mex] k-order perturbation solver.

[mex] k-order solution simulation.

## error: DYNARE: can’t open example1.mod

error: called from:

error: /usr/share/octave/site/api-v37/m/dynare.m at line 110, column 5

So I change the directory to “/usr/share/doc/dynare-doc/examples”. Now I get:

octave-3.2.3:1> cd /usr/share/doc/dynare-doc/examples

octave-3.2.3:2> dynare example1.mod

Configuring Dynare …

Thank you for your help!
