*Dear Gustaf,*
*Thank you for your help.*
*I repeated all the steps again and this time installation was successful
but now I encountered another issue with "setenv"*
*So this is the installation message:*

Installation of AmberTools19 serial is complete at Fri Mar 20 19:10:02
+0330 2020.

*but make test didn't work:*

make test
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/maryam/amber18/AmberTools/test'
Error: Could not import Amber Python modules!
   Probably your Amber Python environment was not set up correctly.

We recommend adding the line:

   test -f /home/maryam/amber18/ && source
/home/maryam/amber18/ (sh/bash/zsh)
   test -f /home/maryam/amber18/amber.csh && source
/home/maryam/amber18/amber.csh (csh/tcsh)

to your login shell resource file (e.g., ~/.bashrc or ~/.cshrc).
Makefile:8: recipe for target 'test' failed
make[1]: *** [test] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/maryam/amber18/AmberTools/test'
Makefile:68: recipe for target 'test.serial' failed
make: [test.serial] Error 2 (ignored)

*Then I tried:*

  test -f /home/maryam/amber18/amber.csh && source
/home/maryam/amber18/amber.csh (csh/tcsh)

*And the error is:*

setenv: command not found
setenv: command not found
-bash: /home/maryam/amber18/amber.csh: line 14: syntax error: unexpected
end of file

*Now when I try to call for xleap for example:*

xleap: command not found

*I would appreciate any help*
*Thanks in advance *
