Our new Linux service is called linux.bath. Staff and students can access academic software to complete their coursework and run their research using a Linux machine.
- We provide a guide on how to access linux.bath from public access computers and using your own device.
- We welcome requests for software requirements for linux.bath.
It is Ubuntu based. It has up to date versions of academic software available. We have installed all requested software on linux.bath including Git, Matlab 2015b and Maple 2016. We welcome requests for other required software.
Linux.bath matches our desktop Linux estate which is also running Ubuntu.
Linux.bath is our general use Linux machine. You can also ask us about our HPC service if you wish to do heavy computational tasks.
