Dynamics PyMOL Plugin is plugin for PyMOL, which add molecular dynamics simulation feature. It is meant to be easy to use. The plugin uses GROMACS tools as a back-end. Project is developed as an open source and as such create full open source stack together with PyMOL and GROMACS. Because GROMACS can compile easily only on Unix like systems, the plugin also keep compatibility only with those. No Windows port is expected.

Ubuntu

The easiest way to install the plugin is to use PPA repositories:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomaszm/dynamics
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dynamics-pymol-plugin

All required libraries will be downloaded as dependencies. Supported versions of Ubuntu are latest stable and latest LTS.

Other GNU/Linux and Unix

The second way for all other platforms or Ubuntu as well, is to download latest release of the plugin directly from its GitHub webpage:
https://github.com/tomaszmakarewicz/Dynamics/releases

git clone git://github.com/tomaszmakarewicz/Dynamics.git

Then run PyMOL as a root. On the top Menu choose Plugin->Manage Plugins->Install... Then choose dynamics_pymol_plugin.py file. After installation restart PyMOL with normal user privilege.

Required dependencies:

Note that latest snapshot do not require Tix anymore. But in order to take advantage of latest features you will need to have ProDy library installed.
