Setting Up Repast Simphony 2.1 in Linux


Repast Simphony is a Java based collection of agent-based modeling and simulation software.

Repast Simphony 2.1 installs its library files into ~/.eclipse/ECLIPSEVERSION/plugins/ and features/

when you create the model it looks for these files in /opt/eclipse/plugins/ and /features

User mijael posted a solution to the Repast Interest Mailing list about creating symlinks to the /opt directory:

cd .eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_1473617060_linux_gtk_x86_64/plugins/
ls | xargs -I targ sudo ln -s ~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_1473617060_linux_gtk_x86_64/plugins/targ /opt/eclipse/plugins/targ

repeat the same for the features directory:

cd .eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_1473617060_linux_gtk_x86_64/features/
ls | xargs -I targ sudo ln -s ~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_1473617060_linux_gtk_x86_64/features/targ /opt/eclipse/features/targ
