## Environment Setup

After login, open a Terminal and enter following command

source ~/data/bin/setup_environments.sh

The job scripts found in the tutorial files (job.sh, doall.sh, etc) work only if the environment variables "vasp_std, vasp_gam, vasp_ncl" are defined. This is done via

export vasp_std="mpirun -np 2 /home/notebook/data/bin/vasp_std" export vasp_gam="mpirun -np 2 /home/notebook/data/bin/vasp_gam" export vasp_ncl="mpirun -np 2 /home/notebook/data/bin/vasp_ncl"
