Errors installing OpenKIM

Dear Open KIM users,

I am trying to install Open KIM in my system, however I am encountering some issues.

In particular, I see errors like,

kimservice.i:174: Error: Unable to find ‘KIM_API_C.h’
kimservice.i:175: Error: Unable to find ‘KIM_API_status.h’
error: command ‘swig’ failed with exit status 1
make: *** [install] Error 1

Please find attached a detailed error file. Could you please suggest ways to resolve this?

Hi Swayam,

It appears that the problem is occurring in the course of installing the KIM API itself before you ever reach the point of trying to install the openkim-python interface. From the error file you attach, it appears that the `kim-api-build-config` utility could not be found in your system path, and adding its location to the path (or copying the executable to a directory in your path) should take care of this. If that doesn't work, could you please give further details of how you installed the KIM API itself?
