Installation

On most Unix-like systems, Python is available as a binary package from the package manager (e.g. APT or yum on Linux, Homebrew on macOS) or via third-party tools like Anaconda and pip.

Additional Modules

Apart from the plain Python interpreter, some additional modules are needed.

NumPy

Almost all tools depend on NumPy.

vtk

Data visualization depends on the on the Visualization Toolkit (vtk) respectively its Python bindings.

Some tools require SciPy.

Troubleshooting

The DAMASK_prerequisites.sh script located in the DAMASK folder checks whether the required Python modules are installed and working. Run it with

./DAMASK_prerequisites.sh

and view the report system_report.txt with the text editor of your choice.
