Permeability upscaling with OPM

Installing the required software

Details on installing OPM on different platforms is outside the scope of this tutorial. Here we outline the few steps required to install the opm-upscaling module on Ubuntu 14.04 using the Personal Package Archive, or PPA. You may not need to do these steps if you already followed the Flow tutorial, or are running in a virtual machine that has already been set up as in the virtual machine tutorial.

First, add the PPA by using the following commands in a terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:opm/ppa
sudo apt-get update

You will be asked several questions if you want to do this, and you should answer yes.

Once the PPA is added, you can install the binary OPM package for the upscaling tools with the following command:

sudo apt-get install libopm-upscaling1-bin
