ngspice not running in eSim

Sir, In my installation on Linux Mint 18.1 (Ubuntu16.04) I can not start the simulation. I get the following error in the terminal: Argument to ngspice command : /home/richard/eSim-Workspace/RC/RC.cir.out Traceback (most recent call last): File "Application.py", line 250, in open_ngspice self.obj_Mainview.obj_dockarea.ngspiceEditor(self.projDir) File "/home/richard/eSim-1.1.2/src/frontEnd/DockArea.py", line 166, in ngspiceEditor self.obj_appconfig.dock_dict[self.obj_appconfig.current_project['ProjectName']].append(dock['NgSpice-'+str(count)]) KeyError: '/home/richard/eSim-Workspace/RC' Thanks in advance

Hi, Please specify whether you got this error in Ubuntu 16.04 or Linux Mint 18.1.

Thank you for the response. I got the error in Linux Mint 18.1 Serena, with desktop Cinnamon. Detailed info about the kernel: Linux version 4.4.0-66-generic (buildd@lgw01-28) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.4) ) #87-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 3 15:29:05 UTC 2017

I tried to start ngspice from the terminal and this is working but I can't start it from eSim with the simulation button.

If you need more info don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks in advance

Are you using a VirtualBox?

Please use a VirtualBox for proper functioning of eSim.

Thank you for the answer. My host system is Linux Mint 18.1 and I like to run all on this system. If it is not possible, which client system should be used for the VitualBox?

I'm sorry the current version of eSim won't run in Linux Mint. You will have to use either Ubuntu or install a VirtualBox.
