Elmer installation in Lubuntu 18.10 by ''apt-get install''

Post by joellapointe1717 » 09 Feb 2019, 02:33

Hi,

I tried the following to install Elmer with the gui :

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install elmerfem-csc
It did the following errors :

Code: Select all

root@lubuntu:~# apt-add-repository ppa:elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa Archive for the monolithic Elmer FEM software ubuntu packages.

Then, I tried to compile with instructions comming from https://www.csc.fi/web/elmer/sources-and-compilation.
I was at 60%, this error appened :

Code: Select all

I realy would like to try elmer, it seems to be a quality FEA software. However, whatever the manner I try to install it is problematic. I vividly recomment to elmer team to do an universal appimage so elmer become universally usable on any linux distro and no install is needed.

Thank you!

they do that via;

Virtual machine
There is a Linux Mint based virtual machine (VM) available at
http://www.nic.funet.fi/pub/sci/physics ... alMachines

The VM is huge in size but provides a certified user experience. This is often used at courses to give not only a fresh Elmer version, but also a complete installation of related tools.

Which compiler are you using for FORTRAN?

I load this operating system in a virtual machine and tried the install, this system is using apt-secure and since there is no release file in the repository it is disabled by default, you can by pass the disable on apt-get by using the option

Pass the --allow-unauthenticated option to apt-get as in:

sudo apt-get --allow-unauthenticated upgrade

older compilers only issued a warning for that condition my gcc is version 7.3

Also there is a CAELINUX iso that can be run in a VM or livecd, it has elmer and many other fea tools

Hi,

did you try to install elmer-csc-eg (not elmer-csc)?
It seems that at least under Ubuntu 18.04 the installation from ppa works, see here.

@Elmer team: is it possible that binaries for Ubuntu 18.10 are not (yet) configured in the ppa?
