They are also available for Anaconda Python 3. 24 \item Using flatpak 25 \item From source -- that is, it must be compiled for your machine. 26 This is the topic of this guide. 27 \end{enumerate} 28 29 See the site \url{https://answers.launchpad.net/escript-finley} for online help. 30 Chapter~\ref{chap:source} covers installing from source. 31 Appendix~\ref{app:cxxfeatures} lists some c++ features which your compiler must support in order to compile escript. 32 This version of escript has the option of using \texttt{Trilinos} in addition to our regular solvers. 33 Appendix~\ref{app:trilinos} covers features of \texttt{Trilinos} which escript needs.
