Could you tell me which version of Ubuntu you're using? Tell me what is in /etc/lsb-release.

UPDATE/EDIT: It appears that Ubuntu no longer provides that library on later versions of Ubuntu:

For the time being, you can get the library using an older package:

UPDATE: Looks like you can get it to work if you install a local copy of the motif (libxm4) library: Restart Pathway Tools after installing this library.
