Installing ANUGA on Ubuntu using the very latest (bleeding edge) version of the code

Packages to install

Install the following packages via the commands

sudo apt-get install subversion
sudo apt-get install python-scientific
sudo apt-get install python-dev
sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib
sudo apt-get install python-profiler
sudo apt-get install python-argparse

Checkout anuga via svn

From your home directory run:

svn checkout anuga_core

This should produce an anuga_core directory in your home directory


Put the following in your .bashrc file (if you use the bash shell. With some version of linux you need to put this command in the file .profile

export PYTHONPATH=/home/username/anuga_core/source

(of course change /home/username to your home directory. )

Should rerun your .bashrc file with

source .bashrc

Compile ANUGA Code

Now go to the directory anuga_core and compile the anuga files via:


Run Unit tests

From the anuga_core directory run the unit tests via:



Hopefully all the unit tests pass. As this is bleeding edge there are sometimes a small number of failures as this is a work in progress. Have a look at the demos in the directory anuga_core/documentation/user_manual/demos (along with the user manual) to see how to use anuga.


From time to time you should update your version of anuga. This is fairly easy. From your anuga_core directory update the anuga code via the subversion command

svn update

Then again from the anuga_core directory recompile the code and check the unit tests via
