EMEN2 Dependencies

For client usage, no dependencies are required beyond the basic Python environment; the GUI clients require PyQt4. See EMDash for more information about EMEN2 desktop utilities.

On the database server side, Berkeley DB and bsddb3 are required for basic functionality. If you want to run the web server, you will also need Twisted, Markdown, and Mako. Additional server features, such as thumbnails and plotting, are provided by EMAN2 and ImageMagick.

Please note that we include all the EMEN2 dependencies listed below in the EMAN2 binary distribution. This is the recommended way to install and use EMEN2. See EMAN2 for information about EMAN2.

See EMEN2/Install for instructions on installing EMEN2 once all dependencies are installed.
