Precompiled Packages for Ubuntu

Precompiled packages of Meep version 1.17.1 (January 2021) with Python interface will be available for Ubuntu 21.04 ("Hirsute Hippo") in April 2021. We recommend Ubuntu as Meep and all of its dependencies will be able to be installed using just one line:

sudo apt-get install python3-meep h5utils

You will also be able to install the parallel version of Meep which is based on OpenMPI using:

sudo apt-get install python3-meep-openmpi

These upcoming Meep packages for Ubuntu 21.04 are derived from the Debian 11 ("Bullseye") packages (serial and parallel). Debian 11 is currently the testing distribution.
