Where is the ipopt binary installed?

Asked by Jeffrey Kantor on 2018-11-09

I am attempting to use some of the COIN-OR packages on Google Colaboratory. For example, the coin-or cbc package installs just fine with

apt-get install coinor-cbc

The cbc binary is located at /usr/bin/cbc as expected. However, when I attempt to install ipopt via the command

apt-get install coinor-libipopt1v5

the ipopt is no where to be found. Any ideas?

From the documentation:

"Ipopt is an open-source solver for large-scale nonlinear continuous optimization.
It can be used from modeling environments, such as AMPL, GAMS, or Matlab, and it is also available as a callable library with interfaces to C++, C, and Fortran. …"

It seems to me that there is no standalone executable provided.

I suggest that you install the package coinor-libipopt-doc and read the full documentation.
Hopefully this will answers your questions.

Can you help with this problem?
