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 visiting the GitHub page Victor
To get the source code you can clone Victor into your local repository from the command line. Assuming you already have installed the Git software, just type in a terminal:
git clone https://github.com/BioComputingUP/Victor.git <your_folder>
A precompiled version of the software is also available from the GitHub website in the Release section. Note that the built version has been generated in a 64bit environment using Ubuntu 14.04 and g++ 4.8.2. The link to page is:
If you successfully got the source code, now you can compile it. Assuming that the g++ compiler is installed in your system simply do:
make clean make
The make clean ensure the compilation process to start from scratch.
and set a couple of environment variables in the Makefile.global 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
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 /APPS /Data /Sources Align2/ // the Align package /APPS /Sources Energy/ // the Energy package /APPS /Data /Sources Lobo/ // the Lobo package /APPS /Data /Sources
