I'm trying to install the "ncdf" package on a Ubuntu 10.04 laptop.

Can you offer suggestions to install this package?

> install.packages("ncdf", repositories = TRUE)
Installing package(s) into ‘/home/steve/R/i486-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.12’ (as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

> install.packages("ncdf")

Thank you
