ProFit may now be run via docker such that no installation is needed.

  1. Install docker
    • Fedora: sudo dnf install -y docker
    • CentOS: sudo yum install -y docker
    • Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install -y docker
  2. Start docker:
    sudo systemctl start docker
    sudo systemctl enable docker
  3. Optionally allow non-root access:
    sudo usermod -aG docker your-username
  4. Download the docker script (see link below}
  5. Make the script executable
    chmod +x

Now you can run ProFit simply by typing:

./ file1.pdb file2.pdb

or, if you haven't given non-root access:

sudo ./ file1.pdb file2.pdb

The first time you run it, docker will automatically download and install the ProFit image. After that, the image will be installed and ProFit will run much more quickly.
