Hello everyone,

As of today we provide package repositories for deb and rpm package driven Linux systems. To allow automatic update of your mcstas, mcstas-components and tools when new revisions are relased, follow these instructions:

On Debian class systems (including Ubuntu, mint etc.):
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
sudo wget http://packages.mccode.org/debian/mccode.list
sudo apt-get update

On RedHat class systems (including Scientific Linux, CentOS etc.):
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
sudo wget http://packages.mccode.org/rpm/mccode.repo
sudo yum update

After following these steps your package manager should now be aware of mcstas (example from Debian)

mcstas at debian:~$ apt-cache search mcstas
mcstas-2.0 - mcstas built using CMake
mcstas-comps-2.0 - mcstas-comps built using CMake
mcstas-suite - A metapackage for McStas + perl and python tools
mcstas-suite-perl - A metapackage for McStas + perl tools
mcstas-suite-python - A metapackage for McStas + perl tools
mcstas-tools-2.0 - legacy-tools built using CMake
mcstas-tools-python-mcplot-chaco-2.0 - python-tools-mcplot built using CMake
mcstas-tools-python-mcplot-matplotlib-2.0 - python-tools-mcplot built using CMake
mcstas-tools-python-mcrun-2.0 - python-tools-mcrun built using CMake

The new meta-packages mcstas-suite, mcstas-suite-perl and mcstas-suite-python allows you to install mcstas with one or both sets of tools (mcrun/mcplot etc.) by simple apt-get or yum commands like these:

Debian: sudo apt-get install mcstas-suite
RedHat: sudo yum install mcstas-suite-perl

Please report any trouble with the repositories to our the mcstas-users mailinglist. :-)
