Hello, Julia:

I have some problem with Ion source before. It aslo gave no output, which 
is solved now. 

In our case, the problem is because when we installed Geant4, there was a 
little bug in it, If we press "Enter" for default value, it will save 
"G4RADIOACTIVEDATA="/usr/local/geant/geant4.7.1.p02/data/RadiativeDecay" " 

" .      

There is missing version Number "3.0" , so the data file is not connect to 
Geant4 and GATE.     After we do  little change with the link, our Ion 
source simulation is working now.

Hope this can help. :)


VUB, brussels
