Installing gpvdm for Linux from souce (recommended)

For Linux users I recommend you get the latest copy of gpvdm off github and compile it using the build tool. This will give you the beading edge version:

Compile from source


Installing gpvdm for Linux from a package

gpvdm for Fedora Linux download
gpvdm for Ubuntu Linux download
gpvdm for Debian Linux download
gpvdm for Mint Linux download
gpvdm for Opensuse Leap
gpvdm for the Raspbian pi 3.0

Arch AUR

Will gpvdm run on my distro?

OS version 64 bit Notes
Fedora Yes (tested)
Debian Yes (tested)
Ubuntu Yes (tested)
Arch Yes (tested)
Cent OS No 6.2 does not have python3 and 7.2 does not have pyqt5.
Raspbian for Pi 3 Yes 3D features disabled.

Note: I've decided not to produce 32 bit binaries as not many people download them. There is nothing preventing gpvdm compiling on a 32 bit os though.

Bugs/I can't get it to work

If you experience technical problems using gpvdm (i.e. it won't install etc..) please leave a message for me on github here. Or if you prefer drop me an e-mail. I'm very happy to provide help in using gpvdm. There are also a few how to videos dotted around the gpvdm web page that will show you the basics. On the other hand if running simulations is not your thing, I am also more than happy to collaborate with you on modeling data.
