I intend to ask the following question:

Can I install Geant4 alongside GEANT-3 on my Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet)? I have already installed GEANT-3. How can I install Geant4 without making any problems?

Can I ask the question on Unix and Linux as suggested by an answer at Stack Overflow meta?

Yes. Factors such as how $PATH is set on *nix systems including Ubuntu might be relevant, so it is entirely appropriate here.

  • Hey, help me out here unix.stackexchange.com/q/214640/84855 . I took every precaution to avoid asking the wrong question at the wrong place. But still I got the downvotes. Where did things go wrong? – MycrofD Jul 8 '15 at 17:26
  • People with >= 125 rep but < 250 rep can downvote but not close vote and are less likely to understand the purpose of various mechanisms, so may downvote because they think something is off-topic, I guess. Why whatever happened there happened so fast is a bit baffling, there are plenty of worse questions on a regular basis that get no downvotes at all even after hours and days. – goldilocks Jul 8 '15 at 17:44
