Precompiled Packages for Ubuntu

Precompiled packages of Meep version 1.3 (September 2017) are available for Ubuntu. We recommend Ubuntu as Meep and all of its dependencies can be installed using just one line:

sudo apt-get install meep h5utils

You can also install the parallel version of Meep which is based on OpenMPI using:

sudo apt-get install meep-openmpi

The Meep package for Ubuntu is in the process of being updated and will likely appear in Ubuntu 19.10 as derived from the Debian package.

The latest stable version of Meep preinstalled on Ubuntu 16.04 can be accessed for free on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) provided by Simpetus.
