If you want to run the simulation with your local dd4hep installation, make sure to source the dd4hep which you are using  : 


source <yourpath>/DD4hep/cmake/thisdd4hep.sh

before running your simulation check always the DD4hep directory you are using and the ddsim : 

echo $DD4hep_DIR 
echo $DD4hep_ROOT
which ddsim
