Installing Ptolemy II

Installers for various platforms

Clone and build the source code

This method is preferred because then you can update to the latest version at any time. Install Java 1.8 or newer, install git and then run:

git clone --depth=50 --branch=master --single-branch
cd ptII
export PTII=`pwd`

The last line starts vergil, the Ptolemy II GUI. You may want to export the PTII environment variable in bash profile (or profile for whatever shell you use) and include $PTII/bin in your PATH variable. To update to the current version in the repository after installing as above:

cd $PTII
