In the debathena release, users have the option of installing any Ubuntu package temporarily (on public cluster machines) or permanently (on private workstation machines). See the aptitude and synaptic entries for instructions.

Much of the listed software is in the debathena-thirdparty metapackage (which is installed by default on public cluster Athena machines). You will need to have it installed to have access to all the listed software.

Much of this software is commercial and is only licensed to authorized users of the MIT Athena Computing Environment.

You can access Athena remotely.

Software in the outland and consult lockers and some others is unsupported and supplied "as is". It may be moved or deleted at any time with little or no advance notice.

Report bugs in Athena software with the sendbug command. You may want to check with Athena consultants or consult Tips for Using Athena Software to make sure it really is a bug first.
