Ubuntu/Debian Systems

Get a copy of a compucell3d-xxx.deb debian package corresponding to your distribution of ubuntu. go to the directory where you stored compucell3d-xxx.deb.

Method 1

Type the following

sudo dpkg -i compucell3d-xxx.deb

If you get get an error "trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PyQt4/Qwt5/anynumpy.py'" run installer by passing --force-overwrite switch to the above comamnd:

sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite compucell3d-xxx.deb

where xxx above denotes the suffix of the binary package name.For example the full package name may look as follows: compucell3d-3.7.5-14.04-x86_64-20160512.deb

You might get error messages complaining about the dependencies. To get rid of them install dependencies from ubuntu repositories by typing

sudo apt-get -f install

Method 2

Install package gdebi:

sudo apt-get install gdebi

Install compucell3d-xxx.deb using gdebi

sudo gdebi compucell3d-xxx.deb

gdebi automatically resolves dependencies, downloads and installs them.

At this point you should have a copy of compucell3d. on your system. If you want to run it from command line you need to know the path to run scripts. They are all located in /usr/lib/compucell3d. So to run cc3d you would type


or to run int in gui-less mode

/usr/lib/compucell3d/runScripts.sh -i <path to cc3d project>

Removing CompuCell3D Debian package

If for any reason you want to remove CompuCell3d from your system just type:

sudo dpkg -r compucell3d

Notice: that when you remove compucell3d package you do not specify version . You just type the name of the package (which is compucell3d) and your debian//ubuntu system will uninstall CompuCell3d from your machine
