Hi,

Either this is due to a compilation error on the Delphes side, or a configuration file on read-only.

Cheers,

Olivier

hi things worked out after i install delphes first then pythia,

i was wondering if mg5 has a fuller manual version like madAnalysis have,
i only found simple FAQ examples which is not helping much,
example, how to turn delphes ON syntax in the .txt file

thanks

Hi,

Ah yeah makes sense, since you can not run Delphes on MG5aMC output, you will never succeed to set it to ON, if a shower program is not available.

We have this: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1405.0301.pdf <https://arxiv.org/pdf/1405.0301.pdf>
For the more manual entry the help command within our code is our manual.
(The code is the manual which allow to always have the most updated manual for your version of the code)

Cheers,

Olivier
