Using ROOT on lxplus

Dear all,

I am trying to source a standalone root installation from lxplus6 as
source /afs/cern.ch/sw/lcg/app/releases/ROOT/6.06.06/x86_64-slc6-gcc49-opt/root/bin/thisroot.sh

However I keep getting -bash: /afs/cern.ch/sw/lcg/app/releases/ROOT/6.06.06/x86_64-slc6-gcc49-opt/root/bin/thisroot.sh:Permission denied

Is this normal and should I be rather using a ROOT version from someplace else?

Thanks in advance,
Suchita.

Hi @Suchita_Kulkarni,
and welcome to the ROOT forum!

This should set up ROOT together with all its dependencies on lxplus6:

source /cvmfs/sft.cern.ch/lcg/views/LCG_97/x86_64-slc6-gcc8-o
pt/setup.sh

Where did you get the URL you were using from?

Also consider switching away from lxplus6 as it is being phased out (lxplus.cern.ch now points to lxplus7, and soon to lxplus8).

Cheers,
Enrico

Thanks a lot, this is very useful. The link I got was a very old link I was using before I switched to cmssw. Now, I need to switch out of cmssw and therefore was trying to have a standalone setup. I have also switched to lxplus7. Thank you also for that help.
