# Installing Gkeyll with Conda¶

Once Conda is installed and added to the PATH, Gkeyll can be obtained with:

conda install -c gkyl gkeyll


Note, that this will also install all dependencies into the Conda install directory. Often this may lead to some conflicts, particularly for the MPI installation, specially if there is another version of MPI already located in the system. Gkeyll should be run using the MPI provided by Conda.

In general, having Conda and source-built Gkeyll on the same machine can cause confusion. In that case please use explicit paths to the mpiexec and Gkeyll executable you wish to use when running simulations.
