MacMolPlt at NSC

Level of support

Tier 3 NSC will not be able to help you much with this program, either because we lack the in-house experience, or because it is a test installation. In general, these types of installations are untested, and will not be updated unless you send a request to NSC.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.

MacMolPlt is a cross-platform (Mac OS X, Linux and Windows) GUI for preparing, submitting and visualizing input and output for the GAMESS quantum chemistry package. Features include a graphical molecule builder, GAMESS input generation, animation of output and visualization of molecules, normal modes, orbitals and other properties. The submitting feature is not available on NSC clusters.

Access to the macmolplt binary is given via the module system, e.g. do a

module load macmolplt/7.4.4-1

and then issue the


command. Remember that you will need to be logged in with X forwarding or the current VNC solution available to make use of the interface. NSC recommends the use of the VNC solution.
