compile error with fenics-dev ubuntu package

Asked by Andrew McRae

Example program:
from dolfin import *
mesh = UnitSquareMesh(8,8)
E = FunctionSpace(mesh, 'Lagrange', 1)

On the third line, execution halts with
atm112@ae-amcrae:~/Dropbox/FEniCS/scratch$ python
Calling FFC just-in-time (JIT) compiler, this may take some time.
In instant.recompile: The module did not compile with command 'make VERBOSE=1 ', see '/home/atm112/.instant/error/c3be3cee106b5a2439f7acf1be6ad7c9927b762b/compile.log'
Traceback (most recent call last):

Inside the compile.log file is...
/usr/include/ufc.h:17:26: fatal error: ufc_geometry.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

I can post the full logs if needed, but it would appear that the problem is simply that ufc_geometry.h is not present inside /usr/include ?

fenics-dev is currently broken. I started working on it last week and I will continue to work on it tomorrow.

Can you help with this problem?
