Mathematics Specific Software at the ACF

General information on the ACF and remote access can be found here.

Software Environments

Many software packages installed at the ACF can be accessed using the env-selector and env-selector-menu command. This command will handle setting up environmental variables and paths to access the packages. After making changes to your environment you must logout and login for the changes to take effect.

Activating Environments

To activate an environment run the command: env-selector --set <environment name>

For example, to activate the "gmsh-2.8.4" environment run: env-selector --set gmsh-2.8.4
Be sure to logout and login after running this command to make the changes active.

Deactivating Environments

To deactivate an environment run the command: env-selector --unset <environment name>

For example, to deactivate the "gmsh-2.8.4" environment run: env-selector --unset gmsh-2.8.4
Be sure to logout and login after running this command to make the changes active.

Listing Currently Environments

A list of currently active environments can be found using: env-selector --query
