Hi Leila,

So actually now you have trouble to get FLAIR working, not FLUKA. Have a look the README files that are downloaded with the FLAIR

Your problem seems to be that the yum repositories installed in your system (ubuntu? - universal) don't include the software you
need. You can solve that by adding repositories (e.g. rpmforge.repo, sl6-cernonly.repo, slc-other.repo...) to the /etc/yum.repos.d/
folder (you will need to be superuser to do that).
Please note that some repositories may lead to incompatibilities in your system, so be careful. I'd advice to get some local help.
Otherwise, go step by step, there's plenty of information in google and most of the time you can setup the system after some effort.

Thanks to Mario, Jean-Michel and Jean-Emmanuel, I did what you ask me to do and now I am in the final step.
Can you help me to finalize the installation?
Please see attached file.
