Instructions and Details
1. First, make sure you have Simbody installed and functioning on your machine *before* installing Molmodel. Go to https://simtk.org/home/simbody. 2. Optionally, install OpenMM if you want to use a GPU- accelerated force field. Go to https://simtk.org/home/openmm. THEN: 1. Choose the release version you want (e.g. Molmodel 2.2). 2. Decide whether you want a precompiled binary (recommended) or the source distribution. Then follow either 3 or 4: 3. Precompiled binary: - Pick the platform you are running on: Linux, Mac, or Windows. - From that platform's set of zip files, pick the one that exactly matches the binary release of Simbody you used. - Download and unzip. You can put it anywhere and then move the whole directory structure later. - Look in the "doc" directory for the Molmodel User's Guide and read the installation instructions. The User's Guide is also available in the Documentation section of the downloads page. NOTE: you should install Molmodel in the same directory that you used for Simbody. Just copy the Molmodel files into the installation directory -- the names do not conflict. 4. Source: - Be sure Simbody is already installed (typically you should build Simbody from source if you're going to build Molmodel from source). - Download and unzip the Molmodel source distribution. - Look in *Simbody's* Documents directory for the How to Build Simbody from Source document for your platform -- Molmodel works the same way and doesn't have separate instructions except in very abbreviated form in the Molmodel User's Guide. - Read and follow the build instructions. Be sure to set the installation directory to the same place you used for Simbody.
