Dear Leopold

It is possible to provide such an archive. I will put this on the task list for the next CP2K release. For the time being you could also download the data folder separately using SVN:

svn co https://svn.code.sf.net/p/cp2k/code/branches/cp2k-5_1-branch/cp2k/data

Best regards

Dear forum,

the precompiled binaries on sourceforge are very handy for quickly setting up recent cp2k versions for demos/tutorials (and we use them in the quantum mobile VM [1]).
Yet, in order to actually use cp2k you also need the directory with the data files.

In order to get that, you currently need to download the full source archive from sourceforge

In analogy to how cp2k is packaged on linux distros [2], would it be possible to provide a separate archive for the data directory together with the precompiled binaries?

Best wishes,
