Mac OS X:

Supported OS versions: OS X 10.7, OS X 10.8, OS X 10.9.

To install, follow the normal installation of a dmg file.

If you are running Moutain Lion (OS X 10.8) and up, and receive "file damaged" error during the installation, it does not mean that the dmg file is damaged. You just need to lower the security settings temporally to install USPOT. After that, return your security settings back to normal. Here is what you do: Launch System Prefrefence -> Security and Privacy -> General, and select Allow applications downloaded from Anywhere.

Windows:

Supported Window OS version: Windows 7. To install, follow the normal windows installation.

Linux:

Supported OS versions: Mint, Ubuntu, Debian

To install, in the install directory, chmod +x uspot_x_x_x-linux.sh, then type command ./uspot_x_x_x-linux.sh

Trouble shooting:

  • For Mint 13 and Ubuntu users:
    • uspot_x_x_x-linux.sh requires csh or tcsh. To install csh, you can use command:
      sudo apt-get install csh

User Guide:

User Guide is included in the download package.


Notes
To run in stand alone mode, simply going to the "Observation" menu and select an AOT. Create a Target. All AOR fields will be populated with default values. Save the AORs to your local disk. The AORs are saved as *.aor file.
To create AORs from a proposal submitted with USPOT, use menu File->Download AORs from DCS..., enter proposal ID in the ObsPlanID filed to retrive your ObsPlan, then click on the "Proposal" node and click "Accept" button. USPOT will automatically create AORs based on your proposal.
