Mac OS X system Gaussian

09 Installation Guide
In order to perform the Gaussian 09, you need to set some of the UNIX
environment variable for each user of the account. If you are familiar with UNIX,
you can set up the G09 according to the installation guide of
the README document that contains the distribution CD. This installation guide,
you use a minimum of UNIX command for inexperienced people to UNIX. Other G09
program body, in the case of the only G09 Utilities, please install in accordance
with this guide.

If you want to simultaneously install the GaussView


Installing programs:

Place the G09 CD.

Open the tar folder, and then double-click the Mxx-10yz.tgz file.
(Here, xx is the, if you mean a PowerPC Mac, 32-bit Intel Mac , 64-bit Intel
Mac, y is the versionnumber. Z is, N, X, in one of the U, respectively, TCP
Linda comes G09 binary, G09 binary, it means the G09 Utilities)
Normally, in a MAC OS X system, start Archive Utility is when you double-click
the .tgz file, will be expanded in the folder named g09 is in it if the
desktop (Desktop) or download (Downloads) folder exists .

After the deployment the end, and then drag to the directory where you want
the G09 binary (or G09 Utilities).
g09 folder's name should not be changed.
file of the g09 folder, you do not need to be modified.
The directory path to the g09 folder, it can not contain spaces.

Configuring UNIX environment variable:


The operation of this step is done for all Gaussian users. In Mac OS X, from the
Finder, but you can not edit or browse the contents of certain UNIX file, to avoid
restrictions on certain of these files by running a few simple UNIX commands you
are able to.

First, open a Terminal window (Terminal application, Applications / Utilities


folder contains. In the Japanese environment, will be displayed as "Terminal"
in the "Applications / Utilities" folder).

Enter the following command (waiting for input prompt $ do not enter).
$ Cd
$ Touch .login
$ Ln -s .login my_login

To exit the Terminal program, open it using a text editor such


as TextEdit the my_login file.

When the g09 folder and are placed in the Applications folder, and add the
following two lines to the file, followed by a carriage return (but I think at this
point the file is that it is empty, if, if this is not the case, at the end of the file
Add the two lines at the end of .2 line, and add a new line).
setenv g09root / Applications
source $ g09root / g09 / bsd / g09.login

If the G09 is to specify the directory where you want to save the temporary
files to use in the calculation, add a line similar to the following, and then a
new line.
setenv GAUSS_SCRDIR / Users / user account name / Scratch

If the specified directory does not exist, please create it.

the .login file, if there is already a path specification of g03, please note that
there is a need to replace the two lines of the above-mentioned (or three
rows).

Please save in plain text format file (please do not save in the RTF format).

In order to enable editing the contents of the .login file, once you log out,
please log in again.

Or more, so we're installation of GaussView, please install according to GaussView


5.0 Installation Guide.

To run the G09 job from a Terminal window


Make a Gaussian input file, but if the application that can not submit a job of your,
use the Terminalwindow, you will need to submit the job. Mac OS X user, one of the
two default UNIX shell, you use either.How to set up is different for each two shells.
Confirmation of default UNIX shell:
Originally, Mac OS X 10.0.x, 10.1.x, the case of the account that has been
created in 10.2.x, the default istcsh. In the case of Mac OS X 10.3.x and later, the
default is bash.

To check whether your account is using either of the shell, open


a Terminal window, type the following command. ($ Do not enter)
$ Echo $ SHELL

/ bin / If tcsh is displayed


[If you at the same time to install the GaussView] according to the procedure of,
please modify the.login file. Taking advantage of the G09 through
the GaussView also, it is also possible to run the G09 from the Terminal window (if
already set, there is no need for re-setting). If necessary, [if you want to use the
G09 in multiple user] Please set of.

/ bin / if the bash is displayed


To be able to use the G09 from the Terminal window, please do the following
configuration (modification of the .profile file). To run the G09 from GaussView,
even if the default shell is / bin / bash, the [If you want to simultaneously install
the GaussView] settings, please be sure.

Modify the .profile file:


In Mac OS X, from the Finder, but you can not edit or browse the contents of
certain UNIX file, to avoid restrictions on certain of these files by running a few
simple UNIX commands you are able to.

First, open a Terminal window (Terminal application, Applications / Utilities


folder contains. In the Japanese environment, will be displayed as "Terminal"
in the "Applications / Utilities" folder).

Enter the following command ($ does not enter waiting for input prompt).
$ Cd
$ Touch .profile
$ Ln -s .profile my_profile

To exit the Terminal program, open it using a text editor such


as TextEdit the my_profile file.

When the g09 folder and are placed in the Applications folder, and add the
following three lines in the file, followed by a carriage return (but I think at
this point the file is that it is empty, if, if this is not the case, at the end of the
file three lines will be added at the end of .3 line, and add a new line).

g09root = / Applications
export g09root
. $ G09root / g09 / bsd / g09.profile

The third line of the first character period (.), Next is blank, please note that
the following is "$ g09root / g09 / bsd / g09.profile".

If the G09 is to specify the directory where you want to save the temporary
files to use in the calculation, add the two lines, such as the following, and
then a new line.
GAUSS_SCRDIR = / Users / user account name / Scratch
export GAUSS_SCRDIR

If the specified directory does not exist, please create it.

in the .profile file, if there is already a path specification of g03, please note
that there is a need to replace the three lines of the above-mentioned (or 5
lines).

Please save in plain text format file (please do not save in the RTF format).

In order to enable editing the contents of the .profile file, just to make sure,
once you log out, please log in again.

We are ready to run the Gaussian from Terminal window above.

If you want to use the G09 in multiple user


If more than one user to run Gaussian 09 log in to Macintosh computers, all
belong to the same group, you need to the group becomes the owner of the G09
software file. G09 ownership set of software files is done in the chgrp
-R command.

For example, the following when you run the command g09 folder following
folders and files, it is set to ownership in chem group. (Assuming the same as
the directory path of the above-mentioned)
$ Sudo chgrp -R chem / Applications / g09

These steps will be important especially in the case of subsequent Panther of


the system. In default of this system, each user is set to separate groups. For

more information on the setup procedure, please consult your system


administrator.

MAC OS X system GaussView


5.0 Installation Guide

step 1.
Before you install the GaussView, please install the Gaussian 09 or Gaussian
Utilities.

step 2.
Drive to insert the CD. Double-click When the icon appears on the desktop to
display the CD contents.

step 3.
gv-50x-Mac * .tgz ( x is the minor version number, * the platform version: *
= PPC for PowerPC Mac / * = Intel for Intel Mac) and double-click the icon.
Normal, Archive Utility is started, the desktop (Desktop), or, gv folder will be
expanded in the download folder in the case of
download (Downloads) folder exists.
Recommended installation is the same parent folder as the Gaussian
09 or Gaussian Utilities folder.
To the recommended installation, after deployment finished, move drag
the gv folder in the same location as the g09 folder.
For example, if you install Gaussian 09 to the /
Applications folder (/ Application / g09), gv folder also move to the /
Applications folder (/ Application / gv).

step 4.
Select the gv folder, press Command-I.
Get Info dialog box will appear (you can open from the "Get Info" in the
Japanese environment). Click on the arrow next to the Ownership &
Permission, make sure the owner information (Ownership) & privilege
information (Permission) (In a recent Mac OS X Japanese environment,
"sharing and access rights").
Modify the same contents as the owner information and authority information
that you set when you installed the Gaussian 09 or Gaussian Utilities.
