Hi,

if you install Elmer from launchpad under Linux Mint, ElmerGUI is included. If you say "ElmerGUI" in a terminal, it should start.

HTH,
Matthias

Root or not root. I'm looking for the file, it doens't exist on the disk and I reinstalled the software, nothing is better. And Elmer is not in the list of soft.

Hi,

there are packages for ubuntu 16.04 with working ElmerGUI, see this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4413. I have it working on my Linux boxes at home, so it must be possible.
What is your Version of Linux Mint, and where exactly did you install your Elmer from?
I can check this evening on my Linux Mint boxes at home how exactly I did it and report here.

@Elmer team: Is there any news regarding the launchpad packages for Ubuntu 17.x and newer?

Hmm, so you installed Elmer twice, once with and once without GUI?

Maybe... I try several times, but I respect the 3 lines of the link to install it. How is it possible to install with and without GUI ?

I am not sure.
I think you should uninstall all Elmer packages and try to install the one with GUI (elmerfem-csc-eg).
I will look at home and might post more information later today or tomorrow.

It works. Apt-get remove and purge and install only elmerfem-csc-eg.

Great! thanks for your help.
