sofastats Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies sofastats-1.5.4.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
README.txt
SOFA Statistics installs successfully on at least 3 flavours of Linux - Ubuntu/Debian (via the deb), Fedora, and openSUSE.  It probably works on many more as long as the distro has the required packages available such as wxPython and matplotlib.

See http://www.sofastatistics.com/wiki/doku.php?id=help:linux_installation&#packages_required_dependencies (although very stale by now)


Step 1 - use your package manager to install the required packages SOFA relies upon:

In Ubuntu SOFA now requires:

Depends: python3 (>= 3.6), python3-wxgtk4.0 (>= 4.0), python3-wxgtk-webview4.0 (>=4.0), libwxgtk-webview3.0-gtk3-0v5 (>=3.0), python3-numpy (>= 1:1.13.1), python3-pymysql (>= 0.7), python3-psycopg2 (>= 2.7.4), python3-matplotlib (>= 2.1.1), python3-xdg (>= 0.25), wkhtmltopdf (>= 0.12.4), ghostscript (>= 9), python3-pypdf2 (>= 1.26), imagemagick (>= 8.6.9), python3-openpyxl (>=2.4.9), python3-lxml (>=4.2.1)

For other distros there will probably be a manual process of finding packages that seem right, trying, and adding more if necessary. It certainly should be possible to get SOFA working on the major distros. 


Step 2 - run INSTALL.sh as root or superuser.  This script puts files into the /usr/share/sofastats folder and a shell script into /usr/bin.

e.g. 
su root
bash INSTALL.sh

or sudo bash INSTALL.sh


Step 3 - launch SOFA Statistics by typing sofastats into terminal (don't do this step as root or superuser)


Step 4 - adding any required packages you forgot according to the messages SOFA Statistics provides ;-)
