To compile EPW for QE-6.3

Post by mishchenka »

Dear all,

I want to install the EPW in QE-6.3 and to get file epw.x. QE -6.3 already compile and I got some rezults with other programms.
When I do in command line:

cd /home/user/qe-6.3/bin/ make epw

I got:

bash: cd: too many arguments

How can I solve this problem? Thanks for the answer!

Dear H. Lee:

Step (1) is path in my computer where QE-6.3 is located.
Step (2) is what I think should be the command to get the epw.x file.

Sincerely,

Valery

Dear Valery:

Yes, you are right.
First, you need to go to the root directory of QE by issuing "cd /home/user/qe-6.3".
Then, in the directory of /home/user/qe-6.3, you need to issue "make epw" in order to install EPW.

Sincerely,

H. Lee

Dear H. Lee:

Yes, that's what I do.
I do in command line:
cd /home/user/qe-6.3/bin/ make epw
I got:
bash: cd: too many arguments
But in the folder located at /home/user/qe-6.3/EPW/bin I don't get the epw.x file , which I think is an executable file to run the simulation.

Sincerely,

Valery

Dear Valery
First, you need to go to the root directory of QE by issuing "cd /home/user/qe-6.3".
Then, in the directory of /home/user/qe-6.3, you need to issue "make epw" in order to install EPW.
Please issue the commands separately.

You should go to the directory of /home/user/qe-6.3, not /home/user/qe-6.3/bin/.
You can find the file of Makefile in the directory of /home/user/qe-6.3/ .

After you confirm it, you need to issue "make epw" in this directory in order to install EPW.

Sincerely,

H. Lee
