# cd /share/xxx_DATA/.qpkg/QSims
# ./qsims.sh start
# ./qsims.sh stop
  • To open the OpenSim console after starting Q-Sims with the script above
# screen -list

The screen is installed using IPKG Optware during the Q-Sims installation. IPKG QPKG shall be available and enable BEFORE the Q-Sims installation
