Setting up Root

Checking Root installation

CheckMATE uses ROOT for a variety of tasks, therefore it is inevitable that every user has a fully working ROOT installation available on their system. Furthermore, CheckMATE uses some ROOT packages which are not installed automatically and which may need to be added. Due to the large size of the ROOT source code, we refrained from including it in our package and instead provide a step-by-step tutorial to check, update or install ROOT from scratch. Running which root inside the terminal tells you if there already exists an installation on your system.

To continue, please state the result of the aforementioned command!
([rootpath] is a placeholder for any other directory than /usr/bin/root.)
root: /usr/bin/root
root: [rootpath]
The command returns nothing or root: command not found
