Ready to use binaries for:
- Linux on Intel and AMD processors.It should work on most distributions. File pymca4.7.4-linux.tgz
- MacOS X (Mac-Intel 64 and 32 bit). File pymca4.7.4-osx.zip
- Windows 32 bit: File pymca4.7.4-win32.exe
- Windows 64 bit: File pymca4.7.4-win64.exe
The supplied linux version is 32 bit.
You may be better served either:
- Building from the source code.
- Using PyMca as supplied by your linux distribution.
PyMca can also be built from the supplied source code: pymca4.7.4-src.tgz
The python setup.py approach will work if the dependencies are satisfied.
The PythonPackages directory contains precompiled source installers for
windows users willing to run PyMca from within their Python installation.
These later files require a Python installation with PyQt4, PyQwt5, Numpy
and Matplotlib to be operational. The package h5py is needed for HDF5 file format
To start using the linux binary:
tar -xvzf pymca4.7.4-linux.tgz
