put fink in a location that you want to stay /your/path/to/Programs for example.
open terminal where the tar ball is.
run these commands
tar -xvf fink-0.36.0.tar
quit terminal and reopen terminal to update fink (your environment for fink should now be set up)
fink index -f
now you have fink
open terminal and run
fink install apbs
(you may run into python27 issues. if this happens , open terminal run: fink install python27 Another thing that may be an issue is changing fink to the ‘unstable’ version, it didn’t happen to me but if it does there is a website that can be used to change to the unstable release)
this will put the proper binaries and other things for apbs into /sw directory
next install this plugin for apbs into pymol
