A. Easy way:

 

1. type this command in your console:
 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wouterh/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ns2 nam xgraph
 
2. after the installation finished, run the program by typing in your console:
 
nam
 
B. The Hard Way:
 
1. Run this command in your console:
 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev libxt-dev libxt6 libsm-dev libsm6 libice-dev libice6 vim
 
2. Download ns-allinone.2.34.tar.gz package from this URL:
 
 
3. Now extract the file, by right-clicking and choose "extract here"
4. Now open your terminal, and change the directory to the extracted package:
 
cd ns-allinone.2.34/
 
5. Run the install
 
./install
 
6. You might hit the error like this:
 
otcl-1.13 make failed! Exiting
 
7. And here is the solution
8. Run this command on your console:
 
gedit otcl-1.13/configure &
 
9. Looks for this lines: 
 
Linux*)
SHLIB_CFLAGS="-fpic"
SHLIB_LD="ld -shared"
SHLIB_SUFFIX=".so"
DL_LIBS="-ldl"
SHLD_FLAGS=""
;;
 
10. and replace with:
 
Linux*)
SHLIB_CFLAGS="-fpic"
SHLIB_LD="gcc -shared"
SHLIB_SUFFIX=".so"
DL_LIBS="-ldl"
SHLD_FLAGS=""
;;
