First, please let me apologize to you for this primitive question about installation (if there is more proper mailing list for this sort of question,
please let me know one).

I tried to run the following tutorial script on my Ubuntu 12:


Since Bio::Factory::Emboss was not installed in my Ubuntu,
I downloaded and installed Bio-Emboss- from

Then, I modified the aligntutorial.pl as in:

use lib "/home/usr/Bio-Emboss-";
use Emboss;
#use Bio::Factory::Emboss;

However, when I ran the aligntutorial.pl, another error message
  Can't locate Bio/Emboss/Methods.pm

Perhaps, I 'installed' the emboss very wrongly.

How can I install the emboss module nicely, so that
I do not have to rewrite the aligntutorial.pl or modules, or 
whatever other scripts on the GitHub site?

Sorry for the silly question.
