gamside.shscript to start the GAMS-IDE. The script is located in the directory GAMS23.7 that is created when you execute the installation file. If you want to move/copy the script
gamside.sh, you can do so, but you need to adjust the
rootdirvariable inside the script and point to the GAMS23.7 directory. By default
rootdiris the location of the script.
Summary of shell commands to install (note that the exact file location and distribution number may change):
$ wget http://d37drm4t2jghv5.cloudfront.net/distributions/23.7.3/linux/linux_x86_32_wine_sfx.exe $ chmod u+x linux_x86_32_wine_sfx.exe $ ./linux_x86_32_wine_sfx.exe $ cd GAMS23.7 $ ./gamside.sh
The only other file in GAMS23.7 is the directory
.wine with is usually hidden and contains everything else.

Note: The GAMS wine system is a 32bit application that needs some 32bit support libraries on your system. One a pure 64bit Linux system, these libraries might have to be installed. On a CentOS 7 system, these libraries were installed via
yum install freetype.i686 yum install libgcc.i686 yum install libSM.i686 yum install libXext.i686
To remove the GAMS/Wine installation from your system, it is sufficient to just remove the GAMS system directory (
GAMS23.7 in the above example).
Additionally, when the GAMS IDE has been executed the first time, it has created a directory
gamsdir in your home directory (
$HOME). Thus, you might want to remove this directory, too. However, note that
gamsdir is also the default location to store GAMS projects and their source files!
