# Install

Instructions how to install the CSXCAD & openEMS Octave/Matlab interface.

## Requirements

Install Octave or Matlab and make sure openEMS and dependencies were installed correctly. See Install from Source for more details.

## Setup

To run the simulation scripts it is necessary to tell Octave (or Matlab) where to find the interface scripts.

### Linux

On Linux these folders are usually located under e.g. `/usr/share/openEMS/matlab` and `/usr/share/CSXCAD/matlab` or if you installed from source (e.g. to `/opt`) under `/opt/share/openEMS/matlab` and `/opt/share/CSXCAD/matlab`. You may add this folders manually using:

```addpath('/opt/share/openEMS/matlab');
On Windows there is only one folder to add. If you unzipped the windows build e.g. to `C:\openEMS` than the path would be `C:\openEMS\matlab`. You may add this folders manually using:
```addpath('C:\openEMS\matlab');
