SpecMate has been developed and tested on a debian (testing) GNU/Linux system. It will probably also run on other systems, too —in particular on other GNU/Linux systems.
Python, python-wx, python-matplotlib, python-scipy, python-numpy, and python-wxmpl are needed by SpecMate to work.
1.Make sure you have python, python-wx, python-matplotlib, python-wxmpl, numpy, and scipy installed. On a debian-based system “apt-get install python-wxmpl python-wxgtk2.8 python-scipy” should do the trick. If python-wxpml is not available in your distribution it will probably work without wxmpl, but all other packages have to be in place.
2.Extract the tarball to a directory of your choice, the directory “SpecMate-x.x.x/” will be created. cd into it and run either:
$ python setup.py install
(as root, for a system-wide installation)
$ python setup.py install --user
(as normal user, for installation in your home-dir)
In the former case you should be able to run specmate by simply typing:
anywhere in the command line. In the latter case, you’ll have to find out what the default path for python user-scripts is on your system. On debian it is “~/.local/bin/”; therefore, you’ll have to run something like:
