I am trying to install a software which has no support so far. The software is from here http://proteomics.ethz.ch/cgi-bin/xquest2_cgi/installation.cgi
This is what they mentioned to follow:
[...] This section describes the installation on Unix based systems. For installation on a single machine, we recommend to use Ubuntu as OS.
a. Install necessary Perl packages
The required Perl packages are listed here: Perl Packages Install these perl packages on your system (e.g. by using cpan). Additionally you need to install subversion and dos2unix (on linux systems). If you use Ubuntu, you can download and execute the install_packages.sh shell script. This script will install all the necessary packages and programs. [...]
Here you can download the install_packages.sh then change the permission which allows you to run it. I downloaded that and put it in my desktop. Then I right-click on it, select "Properties" and then change the permission. Afterwards, I opened the terminal and set it to the desktop.
cd desktop #then ./install_packages.sh
and these are the inside packages
## apache sudo apt-get install apache2 sudo apt-get install libapache-session-perl ## other sudo apt-get install bioperl sudo apt-get install libberkeleydb-perl sudo apt-get install libcgi-fast-perl sudo apt-get install libcgi-session-perl sudo apt-get install libdata-dumper-concise-perl sudo apt-get install libdata-dumper-simple-perl sudo apt-get install libhtml-template-perl sudo apt-get install libfile-copy-recursive-perl sudo apt-get install libgd-graph-perl sudo apt-get install libio-compress-bzip2-perl sudo apt-get install libio-compress-perl sudo apt-get install libtemplate-perl sudo apt-get install libxml-treebuilder-perl sudo apt-get install libxml-writer-perl sudo apt-get install libmldbm-perl sudo apt-get install libstatistics-descriptive-perl sudo apt-get install libcgi-formbuilder-perl sudo apt-get install libmail-sender-perl sudo apt-get install build-essential "~/Desktop/install_packages.sh" 42L, 1279C
[...] necessary packages and programs.
b. Install xQuest/xProphet
- Create a directory where xQuest/xProphet will be installed. e.g. /home/xquest/xquest
- Download the zip or tar folder from the download section. and copy into the installation directory.
- Unzip the folder. The structure will then be /VERSION/xquest/...
- change to the /installation folder. Edit the first line of the "install_xquest.sh" script and execute it. Please note: This script executes /cgi/changeheader.pl which changes the header of the cgi files, if your installation path for perl is not /usr/bin/perl you have to edit the script.
- Add the /xquest/bin directory to your PATH variable, so that the programs can be found. [...]
Here is what I did:
sudo mkdir /home/xqxp/ cd /home/xqxp sudo mkdir xquest sudo cp /home/user/Desktop/V2_1_1.zip /home/xqxp/xquest/ -r sudo apt-get install unzip cd /home/xqxp/xquest/ sudo unzip V2_1_1.zip # give the permistion to the folder sudo chmod -R o+rw /home/xqxp/xquest/V2_1_1/xquest/installation # you can change the permission by gksu nautilus #and then I did ./install_xquant.sh # add the directory to the profile gedit ~/.profile #then add this PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH:/home/xqxp/xquest/V2_1_1/xquest/bin"
Now I follow the structure how to run it http://proteomics.ethz.ch/cgi-bin/xquest2_cgi/howtorun.cgi created a folder in my desktop.
cd Desktop/ mkdir testm cd testm/
I copy and past two files xmm.def and xquest.def to the testm folder and I run or I don't copy them because the -getdef suppose to do this
I get this error:
Error: Cannot find/read the file ./MASTER_RUN/MASTER_RUN.txt
And if I do:
I get this error
Current Server: xquestvm cannot open file /home/xqxp/logs/usage.log No such file or directory at /home/xqxp/xquest/V2_1_1/xquest/bin/../modules/Common.pm line 83.
What else I should do to install xQuest/xProphet?
