I have installed package Parallel Studio XE 2013 update1 on my Ubuntu 12.04 system in order to install CMAQ software and IOAPI3.1. But when I type ifort in my terminal it says:

ifort: Command not found.

What should I do to activate my Intel Fortran?

the package I named is a set of compilers like intel fortran and intel c. The package installation target was to have a intel fortran instead of gnu fortran. – Babak H Jan 15 '13 at 21:23
You can always edit your question to supply additional information. – guntbert Jan 15 '13 at 21:58
I couldn't find that package in the "standard" Ubuntu archives. Could you please specify the exact package name and where did you get it? Also, dpkg -L <name-of-the-package> will give you a list of files provided by the package. Check its output (looking especially for files in bin directories) and paste it in your question. Thanks! – Andrea Corbellini Jan 15 '13 at 22:54
Thank you Andrea but it was resolved by intel community. They told to source *.csh files in bin directory and it resolved the problem. (It was a package I downloaded from intel website) – Babak H Jan 20 '13 at 5:40

Ok, it was resolved by the help of intel community. I sourced the *.csh (I am using tcsh) files in bin directory where I installed my compilers. They accepted "source" command with "intel64" as the parameter so it resolved it.
