Good Morning Gate Users,

I am attempting to install a local copy of Gate on my laptop to test changes before I commit them to a conical copy on a simulations farm but I am running into a bit of a problem (hopefully one which is really easy to fix and I am being silly)

I have installed Geant4, CLHEP, ROOT etc etc but can't seem to get Gate to compile.

sourcing env_gate.sh gives me the response

The current value of G4INSTALL is: /home/laver/geant4/geant4.9.2.p04
The current value of G4VERSION is: 9.2

likewise if I type


I am greeted with;


however when I try to make Gate it appears that ROOT is not found i.e.

Making dependency for file Gate.cc ...

and so on,  I have checked that ~/root_gate/root contains an include directory and the files TROOT.h, TFile.h etc etc and all appears to be fine!

Has anyone an idea of what I need to do to get it to work?

Thanks in advance,
