Install DDT/MAP remote GUI client for Linux/Unix

It is easy to install a native client version of AllineaTools (DDT + MAP) on your Linux/Unix computer that allows you to launch a Graphical User Interface (GUI) on your local machine and connect to the remote cluster to debug or profile a program. You don’t need a licence to install an Allinea remote client; the network license is verified when you connect to the cluster. Follow the steps below to install and configure the remote GUI client:


1. Download the Linux/Unix build as a *.tar archive

It could be done in one of the following ways:

  •  For 64-bit systems running RedHat 6 or Centos OS 6.X, copy the following file from location to your local machine:

2. Unpack the archive and install and the Allinea Tools Client

  • Unpack the archive:
    % tar xvf /share/src/allinea/allinea-tools-client-4.2.1-37994-Redhat-6.0-x86_64.tar
    % cd allinea-tools-4.2.1-37994-Redhat-6.0-x86_64/ 
  • Run the installer, either command-line or graphical.
    • To run command-line installer, type:
