That's really weird. Normally you should not have this kind of problem
on Linux. In fact if this message appears, it means that the
interpreter cannot find the file "init.stk". Since your executable is
"/usr/local/bin/stk", this file should be located in the
"/usr/local/lib/stk/3.99.4/STk/" directory (eventually replace 3.99.4
by your version).
The value of the STK_LIBRARY, which is not necessary if the init file
is in the correct place, should be in this case
BTW, can you tell me how you compile STk?
