sudo sh -c "echo deb quantal main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liggghts.list"
sudo sh -c "echo # deb-src quantal main >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liggghts.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install liggghts-dev

## or

## 3.B Install Liggghts 2.3.5 by compiling
## 3.B.1 Install Packages for Liggghts 2.3.5
sudo apt-get install libvtk5-dev libeigen2-dev libopenmpi-dev g++
which mpirun
/usr/bin/mpirun comes up?
which mpic++
/usr/bin/mpic++ comes up?
mpic++ -v
gcc-Version 4.7.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) <- comes up at the last line?
## 3.B.2 Get Liggghts 2.3.5 via Git
sudo apt-get install git-core
sudo git clone
## 3.B.3 Compiling Liggghts 2.3.5
sudo make clean-all
sudo make ubuntuVTK
sudo ln -s /$HOME/LIGGGHTS-PUBLIC/src/lmp_ubuntuVTK /usr/bin/liggghts
open new Terminal -> liggghts

## 4. Install LPP
sudo apt-get install python-numpy
sudo git clone $HOME/LPP
gedit ~/.bashrc
add alias lpp="python $HOME/LPP/src/"

Thx for your useful information. I tried to compile along your instructions.

LIGGGHTS compiles fine and after
sudo ln -s /$HOME/LIGGGHTS-PUBLIC/src/lmp_ubuntuVTK /usr/bin/liggghts
open new Terminal -> liggghts

liggghts even starts. But if I then compile CFDEM using

The compilation gives the error message
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llmp_ubuntuVTK

so is there something I have missed to copy/move/compile/rename ?

Thanks in advance
