Personal tools


The classic program for the calculation of electrostatic potentials and electrostatic free energies.

Program binaries and documentation are provided at the Honig Lab home page:

Note: The Biskit wrapper for Delphi also requires the Reduce program, which is part of AmberTools (but can also be installed separately).

  1. Request download link from:

    Which version? We have tested with Linux_SinglePrecision

  2. Unpack and move to system-wide location:

    tar xvfz DelPhi_Linux_SP_F95.tar.gz
    sudo mv DelPhi*/ /usr/local/lib/delphi_sp
    ln -s /usr/local/lib/delphi_sp/executable/delphi95 /usr/local/bin/delphi

    ...or any other location that is in your search $PATH. As always, you can also configure Biskit to find the program somewhere else:

  3. Adapt biskit settings (optional):

    This would only be necessary if the executable has a different name or is not in the search $PATH. Make a local copy of the exe_reduce.dat configuration file and adapt it accordingly:

    cd /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/Biskit/data/defaults
    cp exe_delphi.dat ~/.biskit/

    Then edit the "bin=" line in the [BINARY] section of this file.

  4. Test your installation:

    cd biskit/Biskit/

    Should yield:

    <....some example data ....>
