If you already installed Victor go directly to the tutorial page.


The source code as well as the precompiled version of the software are available in GitHub. You can download it directly from [GitHub]

Alternatively you can clone Victor into your local repository. Assuming you already have installed the Git software, just type in a terminal:

 git clone <your_folder>


If you successfully got the source code, now you need to compile it. Before compiling, please check that the g++ compiler is installed in your system and set a couple of environment variables in the or just type the following command, replacing <your_folder> with the Victor main directory and remember to put the tailing "/" to avoid strange errors:

export VICTOR_ROOT=/<your_folder>/victor/  
export PATH=$PATH:/<your_folder>/victor/bin/

Now, to compile the library simply do:

make clean
make install

After that you should obtain the following folder structure:

 bin/            // a copy of all "APPS" executable

 lib/            // libraries

 data/           // symbolic links to the content of the "Data" folder inside packages 

 samples/        // some PDB files for testing purpose

 tools/          // some helper classes

 Biopool/        // the Biopool package

 Align2/        // the Align package

 Energy/         // the Energy package

 Lobo/           // the Lobo package
