running SExtractor
I have been trying to make SExtractor work on my Ubuntu 16.04 for the past 2 days. I was able to install sextractor-2.19.5-1.x86_64.rpm using alien. When I try to run a fits file by using the command

sex filename.fits -c it says

----- SExtractor 2.19.5 started on 2016-07-18 at 00:37:52 with 1 thread

> Setting catalog parameters
> *ERROR*: can't read default.param

I made sure that I gave the exact location of, default.param is in the same directory too. I tired doing what was mentioned in a similar thread poster here earlier, but it gives me the same error.

I am totally new to this. Please help.

Thank you.
