when I tried to run 02_EP_tissue/01_basic_usage, the problem was given below:

Warning: Changing 2022-09-21_basic_20.0/vm.igb.gz to 2022-09-21_basic_20.0/vm.igb!

Traceback (most recent call last):

    cmd = [settings.execs.MESHALYZER, geom] + args

    raise self._exception(attr, path)

carputils.settings.exceptions.CARPUtilsMissingPathError: The path for MESHALYZER was not found (/usr/local/meshalyzer/meshalyzer)

Could you help me with it?

Looks like meshalyzer is not where it's supposed to be according to your settings.yaml file.

See here for details:

Thanks a lot for your reply.
I have tried it but I could not find the binary file which is in the name of MESHALYZER.
The only thing for meshalyzer I can find is called  'Meshalyzer-3.5-x86_64.AppImage'.
I can find the path for 'Meshalyzer-3.5-x86_64.AppImage's but I can not find the path for 'MESHALYZER'

Meshalyzer is not part of the installer packages as described here:

If you install Meshalyzer via the AppImage, can you just use the path to the AppImage as binary?
