Can FDTD solver install on Ubuntu system?


I would like to run FDTD on Ubuntu system? How can it be done?


Hello @tecklee,

Although Ubuntu (and related derived flavours) is not an officially supported platform, it is possible to install FDTD (and other Lumerical products) on this distribution with a little effort. The process entails converting the installation rpm files to deb files, and resolving for some library dependencies. This procedure is outlined in more detail, within the following KX article:


Hello Peter,
