Dear OpenMX Community:

For those who had problems installing OpenMX on Linux, here is a small manual with the steps for the proper installation of OpenMX in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (or others).

First, open the terminal and run the following commands:


sudo apt-get install liblapack3

(2): FFTW

First download FFTW from:, then extract the file and:

sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

(3): MPI

sudo apt-get install libibnetdisc-dev
sudo apt-get install openmpi-bin
sudo apt-get install openmpi-doc
sudo apt-get install libopenmpi-dev

if the previous installation does not work, try with MPICH

sudo apt-get install mpich

(4): OpenMX

sudo apt-get install openmx

(5): First Test: type the following command on terminal using the Methane.dat file.

openmx Methane.dat

After these steps, OpenMX 3.7.6-1 it has worked perfectly on my computer.

Best Regards for of you from Chile.
