How do I select and configure C++ compilers manually on Linux?

System Modeler allows you to compile models with the C++ compiler of your choice. You can select between automatically detected and manually configured compiler installations.

  1. To get to the Options menu, navigate to Tools ► Options.
  2. Select Global ► Compiler.
  3. To choose an already configured compiler, select the compiler identifier in the “Select compiler” drop-down menu.
  4. To instead add a new compiler configuration to System Modeler:
    1. Select Custom in the “Select compiler” drop-down menu.
    2. Select the name of the supported compiler of your choice from the “Compiler” drop-down menu.
    3. If the “Version” drop-down menu becomes active, select your compiler’s version from the given choices.
    4. Click “Browse”, and a dialog to pick the folder containing the specific compiler executable will appear.

    5. Select the required file in the dialog and click “Open”. Possible locations include:

      • For G++:
        /usr/bin/g++

      The compiler executable’s file path now appears in the “Path to <EXECUTABLE>” field.

    6. Click “Verify Compiler” to test whether System Modeler detects the newly configured compiler correctly. The detection is successful if the “Compiler verification succeeded” dialog appears.
  5. Click “Apply” to save the settings.
  6. Click “OK” to close the dialog.
