If no driver software update is listed for your video card in the Software Update window, the latest version is installed on your computer. Your computer is configured to display graphics in MapleSim 6.

If a driver software update is listed, select the entry from the list and click Install. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

Return to Start.

Downloading and Installing Driver Updates From a Vendor's Web Site

If you are using Linux or UNIX operating systems, or if you are using Windows or Macintosh operating systems and the driver software that was automatically detected does not function as expected, download and install the latest driver from the web site of the video card vendor.

Identifying the Driver Version Used By Your Video Card

32-bit and 64-bit Windows
  1. In the Device Manager window, expand the Display adapters section.
  1. Right-click the entry for the video card used by your computer and select Properties. A dialog box that contains information related to your video card is displayed.
  1. Click the Driver tab. The driver version used by your video card is listed beside Driver Version at the top of the window.
32-bit and 64-bit Linux and UNIX

First, determine whether hardware accelerated graphics are turned on.

  • In the root of your Linux or UNIX installation, run the glxinfo | head command.

If hardware accelerated graphics are turned on, you will see a line that reads direct rendering: Yes. If this line reads direct rendering: No, hardware accelerated graphics are not turned on.

You can search the package management system of your Linux or UNIX installation for drivers installed on your computer. Linux and UNIX distributions use different package management systems; the instructions below are provided for the two most common Linux distributions.

dpkg-based Linux distributions such as Ubuntu

To query which packages are installed on your system, run the dpkg -l command. (Note that this is a lower-case letter L.) This command will display several lines of output, so it is useful to limit the output using the grep command. Continuing with the example above, enter the following command to search for NVIDIA® drivers.

dpkg -1 | grep -i nvidia

If you have a hardware accelerated driver installed, you will see an output line such as nvidia-glx-177. In this example, 177 is the major version number of the driver. The full driver version number is displayed in the second column. For example, it will look like 177.82-0ubuntu0.1 on a Ubuntu system.

Hardware accelerated ATI™ drivers are named fglrx on Linux. For example, the package name could be fglrx-amdcccle and the version number may look like 2:8.543-0ubuntu4.1 on a Ubuntu system.

Intel® integrated accelerated graphics hardware may contain intel in the package name or just the chipset information, such as i810.

rpm-based Linux distributions such as SuSE and Red Hat Enterprise Linux

To query which packages are installed on an rpm-based Linux system, run the rpm -qa command. This command will list every package installed on your computer, so you can limit the search by using the grep command. For example,

rpm -qa | grep nvidia.

Named Network Licensing

Named Network Users run MapleSim on their own client machines. These client machines are connected to the license server over the network. The Network Named User licensing option allows system administrators to strictly enforce which users, or client machines, may run MapleSim.

When you install Maple Network Tools, an options file (.opt) is automatically created in the $Maple Network Tools/activate directory.

Note: The vendor daemon, maplelmg.opt, by default, looks for the options file with in the same directory that contains the license file used by the license server manager.

Setting Up Named Network Licensing

To set up Named Network User licensing, perform the following steps:

Edit the Options File

To manually edit the options file, perform the following steps:

  • Go to the directory that contains the options file. By default, this is $Maple Network Tools/activate.
  • INCLUDE lines in an options file state which users can run the product. Add an INCLUDE line for each product. If there is more than one user per product, add an INCLUDE line for each user, as well. Alternatively, you can use the GROUP syntax to combine authorized Named Users for a specific product.
Example 1: Specifying which users can run Maple 16 and MapleSim 6

INCLUDE Maple USER User1

INCLUDE Maple USER User2

INCLUDE Maple USER User3

INCLUDE Maple USER User4

INCLUDE MapleSim USER User4

Example 2: Using `GROUP` syntax to specify users that can run Maple 16 and MapleSim 6

GROUP Maple_users User1 User2 User3 User4

INCLUDE Maple GROUP Maple_users

INCLUDE MapleSim USER User4
