Install DAMBE on Linux
- DAMBE needs WINE to run on Linux. It takes 10-20 minutes to get DAMBE running on a Linux machine.
- For old Linux distributions (e.g., Ubuntu 8.04), enable WINE by clicking 'Applications|Add/Remove programs', choosing 'All available software', scrolling down to WINE and checking the empty box to enable it. Click OK.
- For newer Linux distributions with package managers (e.g., Synaptic Package
Manager in Debian and derivatives), simply open the package manager, search for
wine and download/install it (if it has not been installed).
- Test WINE by running the winefile file manager, i.e., open a terminal window and type 'wine winefile' + ENTER (without the single quotes). A file manager like Windows explorer is shown. You may notice a drive C:\.
- Right-click DAMBEX for Linux and
save it (DAMBEX.msi) to a directory. From winefile (the file manager), browse to the direcotry where you have downloaded DAMBEX.msi and double-click it to open it. Three more mouse-clicks will have DAMBE installed to its default directory C:\program files\DAMBE.
- To run DAMBE: From winefile (the file manager), browse to C:\program files\DAMBE and double-click DAMBE.exe to launch it. You also run DAMBE by clicking the DAMBE icon on Desktop.
