The default detector simulation in second line is PGS when I input "./bin/generate_events". How do I change the default detector is Delphes, not PGS ?

Hi,

If you type "2" you will go trough all the various options. stop typing that key, when you will see it as Delphes.
A more accurate method is to type
detector=Delphes

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

Thanks for your reply.

I mean is it possible to set the default detector is Delphes without typing anything. For example, when I input "./bin/generate_events", it displays the default detector is Delphes.

Best regards,

jin

No that's not possible so far.

Maybe in a future version

The only solution is not install pythia-pgs (which is not supported anyway)
and have only pythia8 and Delphes.

Cheers,

Olivier
