Tarball Download Page

The tarball version of the OT is not the recommended way of using the OT and should usually only be used if it proves impossible to get the Web Start version working. The installation instructions for the tarball version are:

1. Download the tarball in your preferred format:

 

2. Unpack the tarball (it will unpack into its own directory).

3. Run post-installation setup

  • Linux or Mac OS:

    cd ALMAOT-Cycle*/setup
    ./Setup-Linux.sh
    cd ..

  • MS Windows

-> Go to the ALMAOT-Cycle*/setup directory

-> Double click "Setup-Windows" (may read "Setup-Windows.cmd")

4. Start up the OT

  • Linux or Mac OS:

./ALMA-OT.sh

  • MS Windows

Double-click "ALMA-OT" (might read "ALMA-OT.cmd")
