Problem installing Spitzer Pride on a 64-bit machine (for example, a Linux machine running Ubuntu)

Q: I'm having a problem installing Spitzer Pride on my 64-bit computer.

A: If you encounter difficulties installing Spitzer Pride on a 64-bit Linux machine, please see the note "For All Users" toward the bottom of the installation webpage for further instructions.

Q: I *am* using the recommended file (Spitzer-pride18_0_1-generic.sh), but the installation still aborts. What could be going wrong?

A: The solution to this problem is to do the installation under cshell. If you are trying to install under the bash shell, the installation will fail.
