NUISANCE installation guidance


NUISANCE can be download in a variety of formats. The suggested method is to use our virtual box release for Mac/Windows/Linux. Instructions on how to set this up can be found here.

For those who don’t want to use virtual box, it is also possible to download pre-compiled binaries for some Linux systems, or download a NUISANCE docker image for those familiar with how to use docker. Those with access to Fermilab gpvm machines (or any machine with /cvmfs/ setup) should also be able to access a pre-built NUISANCE instance from /cvmfs/ by ssh-ing into a gpvm.

Full details of all possible ways to get the code can be found at the following link:

Please try and download/test the code before the workshop and speak to me (Patrick Stowell) before the lectures if you have issues. I am very happy to help you install NUISANCE on your laptop if you are unfamiliar with any of the download methods previously listed.

For those NOT using the Virtual Box disk image you will also need to download the Monte Carlo events needed for the examples. These can be found at the following link:

Finally, the connection between the Fermilab network and dropbox is very fast, so I would recommend downloading the code whilst at Fermilab during one of the lecture breaks if possible.
