Pyrx is a bioinformatics software that is used for virtual screening of a large number of compounds against targets . In this article, we will install Pyrx on Ubuntu.
Let’s update and upgrade the system first.
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
You need to install pip before installing Pyrx. Open a terminal and type the following command.
$ sudo apt install python-pip
$ sudo apt install python3-pip
To check the installation, type:
$ pip --version
Change to the directory where you want to download the software. Let’s say, Downloads.
$ cd Downloads/
Download the binary file from here.
To start the installer, grant execution permission and then install it as shown below.
$ chmod +x Pyrx-0.8-linux-x86_64-install
You can install Pyrx using pip. For that, you will have to install pip first.
$ sudo apt-get install python-pip
$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip
Now install Pyrx using pip.
$ pip install -U wxPython
Now, you have successfully installed Pyrx on your system.
