Toolbox for Linux

If you want to check which version of the toolbox is installed on your computer, you can do so by opening a Terminal. In the console type the terminal

  /usr/local/include/toolbox_version.sh

The output of this command will show you the current version of your toolbox.

If your toolbox version is older than the actual version or you want to manually install the toolbox on your system, you can download and install the current version of the toolbox from the link below.

(click on the bullet points to get more detailed information)

  1. Unpack the content of the .zip archive. The automatic installation package contains a file install_toolbox.sh that is designed to manage the full installation process on Ubuntu Linux. In addition, the archive contains the toolbox source code in a file toolbox.f90 as well as the toolbox version file. Note: You will only be able to install the toolbox successfully if you have installed a working Fortran compiler on your system, see the menu item Compiler.
  2. The file install_toolbox.sh is a shell file, which we use to execute certain installation routines on your computer. To run this file proceed as follows:

    • Go to the folder in which the automatic installation package files are located. Right-click on some empty space in this folder. A drop-down menu appears like in the following picture:
    • Click on the menu item Open in Terminal and a terminal window will open.
    • In the terminal window type the following command:
      ./install_toolbox.sh
    • The bash script should execute.

    When you run the installation file, you will be asked to confirm that you want to install the toolbox on your computer. You can do this by typing the letter y. The installation process requires administrator rights. You will therefore be asked to type your password. After entering your password, the installation process begins.

    The installation should complete in a couple of seconds. If you saw no error messages appearing, then the toolbox was successfully installed on your system.

  3. You are done! You can take a look at the documentation of the toolbox here.
