It is time to install preCICE into the installation prefix chosen during preparation and used during the configuration with CMake.

To install preCICE run make install.

If the chosen prefix points to a system directory, you may have to run sudo make install.

Testing your installation

To test your installation please run make test_install. This will attempt to build our C++ example program against the installed version of the library. This is commonly known as the smoke test.

Next steps

If you chose a system directory as installation prefix, then this concludes the preCICE installation and you should have a working installation of preCICE on your system. To use preCICE in your project, see the page Linking to preCICE.

For custom prefixes, the installation needs to be discoverable by the system, which leads us to the final step, finding preCICE.
