Install Software on Quest

Software should be installed in your home directory (for software used only by you) or your allocation’s projects directory (for software used by several people in your group).

Only request to have software installed on Quest as a system wide module if one of the following applies:

  • the application is not already in the list of available software and applications on Quest
  • installation requires root access to Quest in order to be installed
  • multiple groups express interest in creating a module for the software
  • you have encountered an issue while trying to install the software yourself

We provide information on a wide variety of methods to perform your own non-root software installation below:
