Cambridge CS installation instructions

CambridgeCS - installation instructions

The software is currently installed on the latest release of NMRbox (https://www.nmrbox.org/). 

If you would like to try it straight away and have an NMRBox account, login to NMRBox and call 'cambridgecs -g' to open the gui from a terminal. You can copy the test data from '/public/mjb218/CambridgeCS_dist/testData'

If you want to install this locally, the latest version for Linux is also available to download from here. Please note that the software is password protected. Please email dn206@cam.ac.uk for the password. This helps us to keep track of the number of users.

1) Download the software from the link

Note the size is around 2 Gb.

2) Unpack the software:

> tar xf  CambridgeCS.tar

Open the tar archive

> gpg CambridgeCS_dist.tgz.gpg

Provide the supplied password (email dn206@cam.ac.uk for the password)

> tar xvzf CambridgeCS_dist.tgz

Unpack the file

3) Once unpacked, change into the binBuild directory (./CambridgeCS_dist/binBuild/)

run

> bash buildCython

This will compile the cython code.

3) Put ~/CambridgeCS_dist/bin/ on your path.

The software is called as:

> cambridgecs -g [for the gui to setup processing]

>graphPlot <filename> [for the spectrum viewer; requires Azara .spc.par files at the moment]

The software uses its own python install so there shouldn't be any issues with libraries etc. If you have any problems/questions please contact dn206@cam.ac.uk.
