Default App installation

Hi all ~~

I use Ubuntu as my operating system. I am new to it. I downloaded many Bioinformatics software; FastQC, Bowtie2,etc.

I have read multiple manuals about installation. I did not download these applications from Software Center. As I went through manuals I found out for installation I have to write first: "./configure", then "make" and finally "make install".

I follow these steps but I cannot install these applications. Would you please help me??

Post your errors and people might be able to help, right now, that's just not possible.

I get this error for fastqc:

"This is the source distribution of FastQC. You need to get the compiled version if you want to run the program"

I do not know what I should do.

If you look on the FastQC download page you have the following options:

FastQC A quality control application for high throughput sequence data

README
Installation and setup instructions
Release Notes Please read these before using the program.
FastQC v0.11.3 (Win/Linux zip file)
FastQC v0.11.3 (Mac DMG image)
Source Code for FastQC v0.11.3 (zip file)

The one in bold is the one you want.

It's a Java application. You need to have Java installed to run it. There is more information in the installation guide:

What do you mean by that? You can't open a fastq file or the program itself?

I have tried to work with FastQC through the terminal and it says the error abovementioned.
And with I open the program apparently it works but I can't open any file.

I assume you have the Java Development Kit installed in addition to the JRE. If not, install JDK and then the DMG version of fastqc should work.

Yes. I have it. I don't know what is happening. The program even doesn't appear in the application list.

When you download the DMG version and unarchive it, copy the fastqc icon that you see (it is the full app) to desktop/applications folder. You should be able to run it then. What version of macOS are you using (I tested this on high sierra)?
