Appendix: Sire Energy Visualizer Chimera plugin
We are developing a plugin for Chimera that simplifies the visualisation of the free energy decompositions that are calculated using Sire programs such as ligandswap and waterswap.
The plugin in under development, but a pre-release can be downloaded from here.
To install it, unpack this tarball into the
share directory of your installation of chimera. Assuming that the
$CHIMERA points to your chimera install, type;
cd $CHIMERA/share tar -zxvf /path/to/EnergyVisualizer.tgz
This should place a directory called
EnergyVisualizer into the
share directory, together with all of the other plugins for chimera.
You can then test that this is working by starting chimera, e.g. by typing
and then starting the
Sire Energy Visualizer plugin, by clicking
Tools | Utilities | Sire Energy Visualizer.
If you can’t find this option, then the plugin is not installed correctly. If you want help, please join the Sire Users’ mailing list and request some help.
Also, please feel free to if you want to suggest a better name
for the plugin than
Sire Energy Visualizer :-)
