Installation instructions for PAScual
PAScual and all its dependencies can be installed simply by running the following in a terminal of a system where Python >=3.7 is installed:
pip install PAScual
However, I strongly recommend installing it in some sort of virtual python environment.
mamba create -c conda-forge -n PAScual pythonqwt pyqt numpy scipy mamba activate PAScual pip install PAScual
Note: Using other conda implementations such as Anaconda is also possible, but I found mamba a lot faster. Replace
condaif you are using Anaconda or miniconda instead of mamba.
Note If you intend to use PAScual in text mode, you may want to also install
matplotlibto produce plots.
Note: if you installed PAScual in a virtual environment (as recommended), make sure to activate the environment before continuing (i.e., in your current terminal, run
mamba activate PAScualor equivalent)
Once installed, just run the following command to get the graphical application:
And I recommend to try the tutorial from the User Manual (some example spectra are provided in the examples dir)
