A Castep Setup

  1. Nov 1, 2016 #1
    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to use the CASTEP software for dft calculations. I have plenty of documentation on how to use it once it's all up and running, however I don't know how to get to that point :/

    I'm not the best with linux but i've manually installed programs before through tarballs but here I am just completely stumped by the range of different filetypes and releases that I have no idea where to start.

    Has anyone else had any experiance with these packages and know what i need to download to get up and runnning?

    No I've never used that software. I have lots of experience installing software, but I couldn't check the installation instruction because it is not free software. But I found the mailing list, so I pointed it out.

    Yes. I would need to see the instructions on how to install.

    The guy who wrote that program taught one of my courses. Unfortunately I never used it :/
