General Download and Execution Instructions

  1. Download and extract the archive file for your architecture.
  2. Navigate to bin inside the etomica_modules directory that appears when you extract the archive.
  3. Invoke the script for the module of choice. They are named in a manner similar to their entry in the Index of Molecular Simulation Modules
  4. Your simulation should appear in a new window.

Details: Command-line execution

Once you have downloaded and extracted the archive, to invoke the script for the module of choice:

  1. Open a terminal window
  2. Change directory to bin in etomica_modules
  3. Launch by entering ./[module-name] (e.g., ./adsorption).
  4. Your simulation should appear in a new window.

Details: Point-and-click launch

If you prefer not to deal with a terminal, you can use the native GUI as described below.


  • Download and extract
    1. Click the link to download the zip archive. Move it to a convenient folder.
    2. Uncompress the archive by double-clicking on the zip file. This creates a folder named etomica_modules.
  • Launch
    1. Use the Finder to navigate to the bin folder inside etomica_modules.
    2. This folder will contain files with executable scripts, one for each module. Find the one for the module of interest.
    3. To launch the simulation, right-click (or control-click) on the file. In the pop-up menu that appears, select “Open”. Then click the “Open” button in the alert box that this brings up.
    4. Your simulation should appear in a new window.
