User instructions

VMD is available via the module system:

$ module load vmd/1.9.3

The program is called vmd.


Free (in terms of beer). VMD has its own license, restricting what can be done with the source code. See $VMD_ROOT/lib/vmd/LICENSE for more details. In particular, VMD must be referenced when appropriate in publications.

Admin notes

I downloaded the pre-compiled Linux_64 version and edited the configure script to set $install_bin_dir and $install_library_dir to appropriate locations on the NFS server. I then installed VMD using:

./configure && cd src && make install

(Compiling from source is not for the faint-hearted!)
