My macbook software list

Filed under: softwares and scripts — kpwu @ 6:50 am

This is just a list showing some alternative programs I am using in Mac OX (10.4).
Definitely, you can use all of them to do regular work instead of paying lots of money to buy all commercial software.

  1. Office
    –> OpenOffice
  2. Drawing
    –> InkScape (installed, but removed. Not quit fit my needs)
    –> Expression 3
    –> Xara LX (Expecting, only Linux version is avilable now)
    –> GIMP
  3. FTP/SFTP
    –> Duck
  4. Web browser
    –> FireFox
    –> Opella
  5. NMR data process and analysis
    –> Sparky
    –> NMRPipe
    –> NMRView (aqua/ Java)
    –> Cara
  6. Molecular Viewer
    –> PyMol (hybrid (using X11) / Aqua)
    –> MOLMOL (using X11)
  7. Math and Graphs
    –> Pro Fit (trial version, but completely same as standard version)
    –> Grace (also called xmgr, need Fink)

  1. Im a novice using CARA. How do you compare the functionality between CARA and NMRView? Which one do you prefer? I am having problem to install MOLMOL in MacOSX. The README.UNIX file is not comprehensive enough for me to follow. Could you teach me how to install? My email address is gauss1801@yahoo.com. Will be very grateful^^

  2. Currently, I use multiple NMR analysis programs (NMRPipe, NMRview, CARA, and Sparky) depends on the work. Cara is good for sequential assignment and NMRViewJ is improved a lot by the author recently. I don’t want to begin a “war” regarding the programs. Any program that helps you do data analysis is good. To me, I always use Sparky to do 2D data analysis and use Cara to do 3D strips analysis.

    For installing MOLMOL on a Mac machine, please use Fink to install it. It’s quick and no pain.
