Gmsh was not yet ported to Linux. The main reason is that the Unix
version of the software is based on the Motif libraries, which are not
part of the standard Linux distributions (you have to purchase them
separately). However, our aim is to use a freeware emulation of Motif
(Lesstif) in the near future.
