PyMOL is computer software, a molecular visualization system created by Warren Lyford DeLano. It is user-sponsored,
open-source software, released under the Python License. It was commercialized initially by DeLano Scientific LLC,
which was a private software company dedicated to creating useful tools that become universally accessible to
scientific and educational communities. It is currently commercialized by Schrödinger, Inc. PyMOL can produce
high-quality 3D images of small molecules and biological macromolecules, such as proteins. According to the original
author, by 2009, almost a quarter of all published images of 3D protein structures in the scientific literature were
made using PyMOL.
This is the Open Source version of PyMOL. The source code is availabe on GitHub:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.2 for openSUSE_Leap_15.1, openSUSE_Leap_15.0, or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
