Installation

Windows

Download the windows installer GenX-2.X.X-win.exe from the home page and follow the instructions in the installation guide.

Mac OS-X

Download the disk image GenX-2.X.X-osx.dmg, open it and drag the GenX app to the application folder.

From source

Download the source distribution GenX-2.X.X-source.zip and unzip it. Run the file genx.py directly with the command python genx.py.

Requirements

The needed dependencies are:

  • Python newer than 2.3.5
  • wxPython version > 3.0
  • Numpy version > 1.0
  • Scipy version > 0.5
  • Matplotlib version > 0.9
  • appdirs version > 1.2
  • h5py

The non-mandotary packages are

  • mpi4py (with an MPI installation)

On a Linux system these packages can usually be installed through the package manager. On a windows system the python (x,y) distribution contains all packages except appdirs which can be installed from the python package index. On OS-X all the package has to be installed separately.
