Cyclus - Creating your Ubuntu Environment

Step 0. Clean Install Ubuntu

Make sure your Ubuntu environment is clean to ensure the script works. This is most easily done by performing a fresh install of Ubuntu. Otherwise, check that previous installations of cyclus have been removed, and the bashrc file is in the default state.

Step 1. Get the Script

Clone the script from here. Make sure you have both the and toBash.txt files. git clone && cd scripts

Step 2. Run the script

Change to the directory containing the script and proceed to run it with the following:

cd ~/scripts/cyclus-setup && bash

The script will prompt you asking what to install.

For this installation we will be primarily concerned with a conda installation, therefore we install the following options:

| Prompt | Input | |:——-|——:| |Update Bashrc | ` 1 | |Install Cyclus Dependencies (apt) | 2 | |Install Conda 3 | 1 | |Install Cyclus Dependencies (conda) | 1 | |Install Pyne | 1 | |Install Jupyter Extensions | 1 (Optional) | |Setup Git | 1 | |Install Sublime Text | 1 (Optional) | |Install Other Software | 2` |

** 1 and 2 correspond to the displayed Yes and No options respectively.

Step 3. Clone Cyclus and Cycamore Repositories

The repositories are found here for cyclus and cycamore.

Likewise, the following can be entered in the terminal:

cd ~ && git clone && git clone

Step 4. Installation

With the dependencies installed, and the repositories downloaded we can proceed to build from source. This is accomplished by running the scripts in each directory.

cd ~/cyclus && python

After Cyclus is installed, we proceed to Cycamore:

cd ~/cycamore && python

If both have successfully installed, we must now verify they perform as intended with unit tests:

cyclus_unit_tests && cycamore_unit_tests
