If you decide to implement and/or just use a notebook that belongs to your IPTS shared folder, you can launch those notebooks in 2 ways:

  • using a GUI
  • using a command line
  • GUI

    Launch the user interface via the analysis-imaging menu, by clicking the item Jupyter notebooks IPTS

    A  window will ask you to select your instrument


    then select your IPTS from the list of IPTS offered


    Then finally select the conda environment you want to use

    ATTENTION: For now, please use j35-notebook while the linux team works of fixing the other conda environment.

    A jupyter session will start, a browser will show up directly from the notebooks folder of the IPTS shared folder. Please be patient as this step may take up to 1 minute (Linux team is looking into this issue)




  • Command line

    Step 1: Open a terminal session


    Step 2: Type the command


    This will display the help of that command.

    /SNS/VENUS/shared/software/start_notebooks_ipts_instrument_conda.sh -i <ipts_number> [-I VENUS|MARS|SNAP] [-c 1|2]

    list of instruments:

         VENUS.  (default)



    list of conda env:

        1. (neutron-imaging).     (default)

        2. (j35-notebook)


    So to jump to the IPTS-1234, for the VENUS instrument, using the default conda environment:

    /SNS/VENUS/shared/software/start_notebooks_ipts_instrument_conda.sh -i 12345


    For MARS instrument

    /SNS/VENUS/shared/software/start_notebooks_ipts_instrument_conda.sh -i 12345 -I MARS


    Using local j35 conda environment

    /SNS/VENUS/shared/software/start_notebooks_ipts_instrument_conda.sh -i 12345 -I MARS -c 2
