LAMMPS-DAILY for Ubuntu problem


Dear all,

I am trying install LAMMPS-daily which is specifically built for Ubuntu OS. I am using 12.04lts OS. I have followed the guide lines in http://lammps.sandia.gov/download.html#ubuntu to install it and as it said I have files in /usr/share/doc/lammps-daily-doc/doc and /usr/bin/lammps-daily /usr/bin/X11/lammps-daily /usr/share/man/man2/lammps-daily.2012-02-23.gz
However, when I am trying to access to /usr/bin/lammps-daily system said lammps-daily is not a directory. So how can I run "make yes-all" and rest of the commands to build the software?? Please help me to solve my problem.
Thanks a lot.
Jeffrey

Hi:

I'm not good with compiling software but here is a few things that should get you started.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingEasyHowTo

When you downloaded LAMMPS it should of came with a 'Read Me' file or a 'INSTALL file.

Generally in order it's:
1. ./configure (if the script fails it will usually tell you why)
2. make
3. make install
The instructions in the file should tell you how to install.

You have to be in the extracted folder before using ./config.

The files in /usr/bin are executable programs. There are not directories. The directory in /usr/share is a directory. There are documentation files in it.

When you say, "it said I have files in ..." what exactly is "it". You could just try using the command line they gave you on the install page

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gladky-anton/lammps; sudo apt-get update
To install LAMMPS do the following once:
Code:
sudo apt-get install lammps-daily
