Trouble linking Delphes with MG5

Asked by Nguyen Thach

Hi there,

I have Delphes 3.4.2 installed locally in my computer using make, and I would like to link it with MG5.

I tried to go to ./input/mg5_configuration.txt and add the Delphes path and uncomment the line and all:

#! Delphes Package
#! relative path start from main directory
delphes_path = /mnt/c/users/zheny/desktop/stem/research/collider/group1/mg5_amc_v2_8_0/Delphes-3.4.2 #

But when I run "generate events" in mg5_amc, I always received "Not avail." detector message:

Choose the detector simulation program | detector = Not Avail. | Please install module

Did I miss something while linking with Delphes? I'm running MG5 in Ubuntu 20.04 on Windows.

Are you sure that you have all the executable available?
Delphes has a lot of executable (depending of the input) if you did not compile the ones we need, it will behaves like that.
(we need to have stdhep and hepmc executables if I remember correctly)
