Molecular structure visualisation tool


Managed Linux workstations: Ubuntu 10.04 and 12.04 only. Not available for 14.04 (Trusty).

Instructions for users: 

It is on the PATH so you should be able to just type rungOpenMol.

Licence Details: 

Free of charge for academic installations. Distributed as binaries, not source.


Seems to have some documentation in Word and PDF format in /usr/local/shared/gOpenMol-3.00/docs.

Admin notes: 

Comes as a binary distribution so pretty trivial to install. Has a setup script that writes the rungOpenMol script, but doesn't seem to put anything OS-specific in it.

As of 2014 its homepage says it is no longer supported so we have stopped supplying it.
