Re: [AMBER] amber installation on linux mint

Dear David,

As a matter of fact, I've been installing Amber on dozens of computers since the days of Amber 8 ! This is the first time I'm running into any sort of trouble, and I believe it's due to the fact that I'm not allowed to use sudo commands in my current work place. If the directories I've installed the zlib and libbz2 libraries are none standard, I've added them to my PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH, I guess I'll try a symbolic link in the meantime just in case.

Best regards,

Nahoum Anthony

None of the above looks right. Is the "amb22_inst" directory is the one you
chose in run_cmake as the installation directory? First, the folder doesn't
exist during the build (which is done in the amber22_src folder), and
wouldn't be the appropriate place where compilers would look in any event.

Is there some reason you cannot just use "sudo apt install" as outlined

If you really want to install these packages by hand, you will need to
make sure that the directories are ones that will be searched by default by
your compliers, or that you learn enough linux to figure out how to do that
on your own.

...good luck...dac
