After downloading the zip-file unzip the file, enter the MAGIX directory and execute the file by typing at the command prompt



This will compile all modules used by (SMP) version MAGIX. In order to install the MPI version of MAGIX (recommended) add the MPI flag to the call of the installation script


./ --mpi


Note, make sure that the following packages are installed before you execute the install script:

  • python 3.4 (or later)
    If you use Ubuntu, you have to install the package "python3-dev" as well.
  • numpy 1.16 (or later)
  • scipy 1.2.1 (or later)
  • astropy 3.1 (or later)
  • gfortran 4.8 (or later)
  • h5py (optional)
  • matplotlib 3.0.3 (optional) (If you do not want to use the matplotlib you have to use the "--noplot" option in the MAGIX start command. Please check manual for further details.)
