Ubuntu 64 bit virtual machines (VM) with preinstalled software, available to participants of Drug Discovery Design Methods & Applications workshop, Oxford UK.
To run virtual machines on Windows 64 bit or Linux 64 bit architectures you can download and install the free VMWARE player at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_player/6_0
In alternative, a working 30-days VMware Workstation trial can be downloaded at:
Note to Windows 32 bit users: a 32 bit Linux VM will be available with the following preinstalled software:
AmberTools13, PLANTS/SPORE/pharmACOphore, autodock/vina, pymol, vmd-1.8.7, chimera-1.9
Windows versions of OpenEye and Schrodinger software need to be installed under the native operating system.
Note to Mac Users: Ubuntu 64 bit VM can also be run under MAC. You will need to download and install a 30-days free trial of VMWARE FUSION available at http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/

Other software needed for the workshop:
compressed executables for trial versions of OMEGA, ROCS and VIDA will be provided for different architectures.
Linux installation: unpack the .tar.gz file in the installation directory (i.e. /usr/local) and make sure that the bin folder is in your path:
PLANTS, SPORE and pharmACOphore can be downloaded from http://www.tcd.uni-konstanz.de/research/plants.php
unpack the tarball, change file permissions (i.e. chmod ugo+x PLANTS) and place the executable in your binary path (i.e. /usr/local/bin or /home/bin)
Linux installation (Autodock):
unpack the tarballs, locate the executables in the directory tree, change file permissions (i.e. chmod ugo+x autodock4) and place the executable in your binary path (i.e. /usr/local/bin or /home/bin)
Linux installation (MGLtools):
change file permissions (i.e. chmod ugo+x mgltools_Linux-x86_64_1.5.6_Install), execute as root (i.e. sudo ./mgltools_Linux-x86_64_1.5.6_Install) and follow the instructions.
openbabel (Ubuntu installation: sudo apt-get install openbabel)

chimera (downloadable at https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/download.html ; follow Instructuions provided at the download site)
VMD http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Development/Download/download.cgi?PackageName=VMD ; uncompress, cd in the vmd directory, run ./configure, cd in the src directory and run "make install" as root )
for MAC users: detailed instruction to install and compile AmberTools and Amber are available at: http://jswails.wikidot.com/mac-os-x
We suggest the use of Ubuntu 64 VM with VMWARE FUSION
