# Linux Quickstart Guide¶

This quickstart guide is for installing ADF/AMS on a Linux desktop/laptop machine. For cluster installations please read the generic Installation manual

cd $HOME tar -xf$HOME/Downloads/adf2018.101.pc64_linux.intelmpi.bin.tgz


Run the following command to source the adfbashrc.sh file, do not forget the dot and space at the beginning of the line! Also make sure to replace 2018.101 with the version you downloaded.

. $HOME/adf2018.101/adfbashrc.sh  Start up the GUI with this command: adfjobs &  If this does not open a gui, then use your mouse to select all the text in the terminal window, copy it (right-click and select copy), and send us an email at support@scm.com with the text. DO NOT PROCEED WITH THE NEXT STEP! If the ADF GUI started without problems, go back to ther terminal window and run the following command to create a desktop icon for ADF: $ADFBIN/create_linux_icon.sh


Finally we can set up our terminal to automatically source the adfbashrc.sh file when starting. Add the source command to the .bashrc file with the following command in the terminal window:

echo '. $HOME/adf2018.101/adfbashrc.sh' >>$HOME/.bashrc


You can also open the .bashrc file in a text editor, and manually paste the part between the quotes on a new line at the end of the file.
