Qutemol and Ubuntu – native support

A Snapshot of the QuteMol open source software...

A week ago I got an email from a long-time-no-see friend, Marcin Feder, with information that Qutemol works fine on the Hardy and Gutsy versions of Ubuntu (binary packages were prepared by Morten Kjeldgaard; see more https://blueprints.launchpad.net/~mok0/+related-software, there are some other interesting titles there). According to Marcin following steps are enough to enjoy Qutemol on your linux box:

sudo aptitude install libungif4g  libwxbase2.8-0 libwxgtk2.8-0
wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/g/glew/libglew1.4_1.4.0-1ubuntu1_i386.debhttp://ppa.launchpad.net/mok0/ubuntu/pool/main/q/qutemol/qutemol_0.4.1~cvs20080130-0ubuntu1~gutsy~ppa1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i libglew1.4_1.4.0-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i qutemol_0.4.1~cvs20080130-0ubuntu1~gutsy~ppa1_i386.deb
I have too ancient Ubuntu version to check it right now, but not all of you are so lazy with upgrades so have fun.

Qutemol rendering

Impressive thing about Qutemol rendering with ambient occlusion is that this method is used in real time. I’ve put a small video showing a difference between typical rendering and Qutemol’s method (well, I hope it’s visible, quality of this video is pretty bad, but it’s my first file posted on YouTube).

The bad thing about Qutemol is that so far it works mostly only on the Windows OS (I’m not the last person having problems running it on the OSX). Linux users are out of luck – Qutemol needs hardware support for 3D rendering, so a virtual machine with Windows is not a solution.
