Installation instructions for PAScual


For running PAScual you need, at least:

  • Python >=2.7
  • Numpy >=1.0.3
  • scipy >=0.5.2
  • PyQt >=4.6
  • PythonQwt >=0.5.5

For getting graphical output in the text mode interface, you may want

  • matplotlib >= 0.90.1

Except for PythonQwt, the rest of the packages should be available in the official repositories of any linux distribution that supports Python2.7.

For PythonQwt, you may need to use [PyPI](

### TIP: using conda to install the pre-requisites

You can create a [conda]( environment with the required prerequisites with:

conda create -c conda-forge -n PAScual python=2 pythonqwt pyqt numpy scipy

Installing PAScual

The simplest way is to use:

` pip install PAScual `

Alternatively, you can also download the tar.gz from PyPI, untar it into a temporary directory, change to it and run:

` python install `

Running PAScual

Once installed, just run the following command to get the graphical application:

` pascual `

And I recommend to try the tutorial from the User Manual (some example spectra are provided in the examples dir)
