In order to start the code, you just type dftb+, or if the binary is not
in your PATH, then with explicit path, like /home/user/progs/dftb+.

Depending on your system, you may have to submit your calculation in
form of a job script, which invokes then dftb+. There you can invoke it
the same way as described above. How the jobscript itself must look
like, depends on your local environment, so you'd have to consult the
appropriate documentation or your system adminstrator.
