What is Grace?
This will install the Grace tool and its specific dizmo development features.
Install the latest Python 2.7.x release through the installer found here: https://www.python.org/downloads/
The Windows path environment will need the Python and Python scripts directories added to it.
You will want to add this to the beginning of the path value (in the system variables):
To do that, type into the command prompt
$ path= %path%;C:\Python27\Scripts
and press Enter
If you want to add the path to Python permanently, you should add it to system variables. (Computer > Advanced System Settings > Environment Variables)
Download and run the following to install Setuptools which contains EasyInstall: https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/raw/bootstrap/ez_setup.py right-click the link and with the context menu item

cmd and go to the Desktop. You can do that by typing
Then use the
python ez_setup.py command to install easy_install.
Continue the install as follows in the command prompt:
$ easy_install pip $ pip install grace $ pip install grace-dizmo
First, we need to install the command line tools from Xcode. These Command Line Tools let us automatically build python modules on our system. Xcode is available via the Mac App Store.
Open Terminal and run the following commands:
$ sudo easy_install pip $ sudo pip install grace $ sudo pip install grace-dizmo
Should the installation fail on the second command listed, then you have hit upon a bug related to Xcode 5.1.x. To resolve this you will need to run the second command as follows:
sudo easy_install pipsudo CFLAGS=-Qunused-arguments CPPFLAGS=-Qunused-arguments pip install grace
$ sudo apt-get install python-pip $ pip install grace --user $ pip install grace-dizmo --user
Note: If the install fails on the second or third command listed, you likely need to install python2.7-dev like so:
$ sudo aptitude install python2.7-dev
To finish off, run the following to update your PATH:
$ echo "export PATH=~/.local/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
You can update Grace to its latest version.
$ sudo pip install -U grace grace-dizmo
$ pip install -U grace grace-dizmo
$ pip install --upgrade --user grace grace-dizmo
