Hi Dr Satya,

This happens when i tried to install Spatiocyte in my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

Hi Chew,

When you issue the following in the terminal, can you provide the full output messages? I would like to know which package gives the error.
sudo apt-get install git autoconf automake libtool g++ libgsl0-dev python-numpy python-ply python-gtk2 libboost-python-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libgtkglextmm-x11-1.2-dev libhdf5-dev libav-tools blender vlc python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib valgrind

Thanks.
satya

It seems it is a bug with your version of Ubuntu, not Spatiocyte. Here is a solution from http://answers.ros.org/question/203610/ubuntu-14042-unmet-dependencies/

After running the above try again the following:

Dear Satya

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and there are some problems with installation. It was complaining about pygtk (the log is above), and I've installed it but it's still unable to locate it. Do you have any ideas how to solve it?

Dear Svitlana,

Thank you for your interest in Spatiocyte. The instructions on the spatiocyte.org website is for the experimental version of Spatiocyte. This version of Spatiocyte runs on Linux with the python-gtk module (https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=python-gtk). The error message says that this module has not been installed on your system.

As a beginner user, it would be more convenient and easier to run Spatiocyte if you install the E-Cell 4 package: https://github.com/ecell/ecell4_base#installation
Here is a tutorial on how to run the Spatiocyte simulator using the E-Cell 4 package:
Feel free to send a message here if you have any issues with the installation or building/running a model.

If you would like to continue using the bleeding edge version, let me know too if error persists after you install the python-gtk module. I will be happy to help.

Cheers,
Satya

I just realized that you mentioned that you have already installed pygtk. Did you try installing the development version of python-gtk (python-gtk2-dev)? 

Cheers,
Saya

Unfortunately, I don't have access to a Linux machine right now, so I can't check this but you can also try the following:
pip install pygtk
pip3 install pygtk

Hi, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately none of those worked for me. I'll try E-Cell 4 package.

Thanks for the update. Let me know if you have any issues with Spatiocyte in the E-Cell 4 package.

Cheers,

Hi Satya,

After some deviations in my project, I decided to come back to using ecell4 package. I posted this question on the slack channel, but not sure if it's still maintained. I’m trying to model a simple reaction A+B -> C with Spatiocyte world in ecell 4 package. I would like to add external molecules (crowders) that don’t participate in the reaction but create volume exclusion effect.  According to your documentation, the size of the voxel should be preferably equal to the largest molecule in the system and it works the best if the molecules are of the same size. Can you suggest any alternatives within your package (avoiding bd because it's extremely computationally expensive) if I wanted to simulate different sizes of molecules, say reactants twice larger than the crowders?

Cheers
Svitlana

Hi Kaizu-san and Nishida-san,

Svitlana is using E-Cell4 and would like to simulate molecules with different diameters (see her message below). Can you please help her? Thanks!

Cheers,

Hi Dr. Satya,

Myself Nayana, wanted clarification that, can we build the model for a Lac-operon of a single cell using pSpaciocyte. So that if it works fine. I can proceed with the work by installing it.
Thank you.

Regards,
Nayana G.Bhat
