Hi all,

I'm trying to run RMTK but unfortunately have encountered some errors.
I ran the VM VirtualBox 6.1 for windows and then installed ubuntu 20.
Then according to the user manual of RMTK, I downloaded related codes as a zipped package from :

According to the RMTK user manual, "OpenSees for ubuntu is part of the RMTK distribution" and it’s located in :
and it should be loaded automatically by RMTK scripts. But when I tried to run it, I have encountered an error as follows:
"Error! /home/rmtk-master/bin/OpenSees.u1604 is not UTF encoded saving disabled"

Please let me know what is the problem and how to fix it?
Which version of ubuntu would you recommend me to install so that I can use all the RMTK modules?
According to the user manual, knowledge of python programming language is not necessary. Please tell me which version of python I need to install ??

Many thanks,

could you please be more specific what command generates the error - is it some of the notebooks in

that OpenSees seems to be built for ubuntu 16.04 and you are using it in 20.04 but should not be a problem (unless you have some binary libraries on the system...)
On some stackoverflow site they say "is not UTF encoded saving disabled" actually means: I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DISPLAY THIS DATA ! - Yours Jupyter
And in fact there is no error...

Thank you

Hmm, when I an trying to run OpenSees.u1604 under ubuntu 20.04, it complains about and I read that this is no longer supported for ubuntu 20.04... so probably best to try on ubuntu 16.04 ...
