$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib/elmersolver
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib/elmersolver
$ ElmerGUI

depending where the shared objects are.


The problem causing ElmerSolver not to find library objects under /usr/lib/elmersolver is now fixed and thus this workaround is now longer needed.

I successfully installed ElmerFem using:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elmerfem-csc

which I found in the instructions here:

Was those three commands all what you did, no preparation work? As for me this method does not work. I have tried it now in two different Ubuntu 16.04 LTS computers.

Last command sudo apt-get install elmerfem-csc results in:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
elmerfem-csc is already the newest version (8.2-201611301817~11badd5~ubuntu16.04.1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 142 not upgraded.

But I don't see any Elmer around... maybe an Elmer course for installing it on Ubuntu would be good. :) Mind you that I have been able to install it in Windows but would very much like to have it in Ubuntu.

Hi Estiivan,
Cheers to you that Elmer (with ElmerGUI ) installation is successful in your Ubuntu computer. With launchpad (ppa), you only need to do these few steps.

Yours Sincerely,
Anil Kunwar
