I've compiled Gamit/Globk software from the source codes. The installation directory's path "/home/sorbilene/GAMIT".
I need to create links and set environment variables to run the software without problem. I'm a new user for ubuntu so I don't get them exactly. The below are the necessary links and setting variables.
1-) Making required ~/gg link to newly installed software:
ln -s -f /home/sorbilene/GAMIT ~/gg
2-)Don't forget to set your : path to include
/home/sorbilene/GAMIT/gamit/bin and /home/sorbilene/GAMIT/kf/bin : HELP_DIR environment variable in you shell profile (in .cshrc/.tcshrc add: setenv HELP_DIR /home/sorbilene/GAMIT/help/) : INSTITUTE evnironment variable in your shell profile (in your .cshrc/.tcshrc add: setenv INSTITUTE where_i_work) where_i_work is a 3 character identifier for your solutions
Could anyone explain, what they're stand for and how can I set these paths?
