ML_quip does not work with LAMMPS

Hi, I am trying to run pair_style quip in LAMMPS but I get this error message:

ERROR: Unrecognized pair style ‘quip’ is part of the ML-QUIP package which is not enabled in this LAMMPS binary. (src/force.cpp:278) Last command: pair_style quip

Can someone help? Thank you!

Before anybody can help you, we need more information:

  • How did you install LAMMPS? Using a package manager, a binary installer, compilation from source code?
  • Which version of LAMMPS?
  • What operating system do you use?
  • What kind of hardware are you running on?

I used the package manager and have the latest version of lammps (23Jun2022). As operating system I use Wsl Ubuntu on Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise, Dell Laptop Latitude 7330.

If you installed LAMMPS with a package manager then what features are available in LAMMPS depend on the choices made by whoever did the packaging. LAMMPS has many optional features called packages. If you want to use a feature that is in an optional package, you have to uninstall your packaged version and install LAMMPS by yourself from source code and then include the packages you want/need. Detailed instructions on how to build LAMMPS from source are in the LAMMPS manual.

Thank you for your help I will try this!
