    Instructions for Installing PyRx from Source

    PyRx depends on many packages that might not be easy to install.

    Please try binary installer corresponding to your OS first (see above).

    If that fails, you'll need to install the following list of packages that PyRx depends on.

    Please note that installing PyRx from source is challenging and requires expert Python programming experience.

    • Python - a programming/scripting language - python.org.

    • AutoDockTools, used to generate input files - mgltools.scripps.edu.

    • wxPython for cross-platform GUI - wxpython.org.

    • The Visualization ToolKit (VTK) for 3D computer graphics - vtk.org by Kitware, Inc.

    • Enthought Tool Suite, including Traits, for application building blocks - code.enthought.com.

    • Opal Toolkit for running AutoDock remotely using Web services - opal.nbcr.net.

      You'll need to install Python Opal Web Service Client. PyRx is set to use ws.nbcr.net servicer by default.
      If you are planning to create your own grid/cloud, you'll need to install Opal Server as well.
    • Open Babel for importing SDF files, removing salts and energy minimization - openbabel.org.

    • AutoDock, used as a docking software - http://autodock.scripps.edu (optional).

      Only remote execution mode is enabled if PyRx can't find autodock binaries.

    • ePMV, embedded Python Molecular Viewer - epmv.scripps.edu.

    Congradulations if you managed to install all the dependencies and read this far.

    bash - PYTHONPATH="/usr/local/MGLTools-$Version/MGLToolsPckgs:/usr/local/MGLTools-$Version/lib/python2.6/site-packages"
    Run "python runPyRx.py" from command line.
    Mac OS X Users - add MGLTools to your PYTHONPATH:
    export PYTHONPATH="/Library/MGLTools/$Version/MGLToolsPckgs/:/Library/MGLTools/$Version/lib/python2.6/site-packages"
