Re: [lammps-users] problem with "fix thermal/conductivity"

Dear Axel,
Thanks a lot. Actually, after I checked with "lmp_mpi -h",  I understood that I don't have thermal/conductivity among the fix styles in my compilation folder. I should say that I installed Lammps on my institutional cluster so I cannot update it because of administrative laws. What can I do now to make it work?

Dear all,
I have a problem with the style of "fix  thermal/conductivity". When I use this command, this error appears:  "unknown fix style thermal/conductivity"
I checked the mailing list archive and I found that the problem may be due to the MISC package. 
So, I used "make package-status" and I saw that both MISC and USER-MISC packages are installed. what would be my problem then?

​having the package installed is only one prerequisite. ​you also have to have updated your compilation and have to actually use that updated binary.
you can verify that, by looking at the output of ./lmp_mpi -h in your compilation folder and compare that to the output that you get when you a -h flag to your simulation run command. also, these days, you have to watch out for non-ascii characters, e.g. when you cut-n-paste text verbatim from the manual, as many pdf viewers and webbrowsers have a tendency to replace certain ascii characters with similar looking non-ascii versions for a more visually appealing text rendering.
