How to install ClusCo on Ubuntu (Linux)?

ClusCo is a bioinformatics software to perform clustering and comparison of protein models [1]. In this article, we are going to install ClusCo on Ubuntu (Linux).

Preparing system

Let’s update and upgrade our system first.

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Installing prerequisites

You need to install the TCLAP library in order to run ClusCo. Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T and paste the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install libtclap-dev

Downloading ClusCo

Change to the directory where you want to download the software. We are downloading in ‘Downloads‘.

$ cd Downloads/

Download ClusCo from here or use the following command.

$ git clone https://bitbucket.org/mjamroz/clusco.git

Installing ClusCo

Change to the ‘clusco‘ directory and make a new one, namely, build.

$ cd clusco/

$ mkdir build

Now move inside the build directory and install clusco.

$ cd build/

$ cmake ../

$ make

It will take a few minutes to install. You will find an executable file named ‘clusco_cpu‘ inside the build/src directory.
