Install xcrysden simplest way for all UBUNTU

XCrySDen is a crystalline and molecular structure visualisation program, which aims at display of isosurfaces and contours, which can be superimposed on crystalline structures and interactively rotated and manipulated. It can run on most UNIX platforms, without any special hardware requirements.
Here is the simplest  installation procedure for xcrysden  installation.

The general method for Ubuntu has been given in this post.

Here is the simplest method of all.

Download it and keep it on  Desktop...

Now open a terminal and type in the following...

The following applies for both 32-bit and 64-bit users...

cd ~/Desktop

tar -xzvf xcrysden_*_debian_and_ubuntu.tar.gz
cd  xcrysden_*_debian_and_ubuntu
chmod +x ./

After finishing installation you can verify installation by typing in




  1. when i run the xcrysden it says,

    ......XCrySDen-1.5.24-src-all/bin/xcrys: not found

    then what can i do

  2. Thanks!!! After trying all kinds of stuff, this finally worked.

    above error was found during installation of Xcrysden.

    PLZ help me.

  4. That has nothing to do with Xcrysden...

    I hope it will be working fine...

    To rectify that message, one can do the following...

    In the terminal, type in...

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Hope this will help you...

    With regards,

  5. after installing it says xcrysden command not found

  6. after installation i am having this problem
    Fetched 1,973 kB in 7s (270 kB/s)
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    what to do now??

  7. thanks it worked perfectly! I extracted in the home folder and the first errors dissapeared.

  8. I'm using 12.04.2 for 32 bit. a compile error saying "Errors were encountered while processing:
    *.i386.deb" occurs and there's no xcrysden executable after the installation.

    how to correct this

  9. please edit the "" file using any text editor like gedit, nano, vi etc...

    please change "*.i386.deb" to "*i386.deb"

    ie; remove the 'dot' after *

    save it and proceed with the regular instructions...

    I am sorry for this inconvenience...

  10. It worked for me. Thank you

  11. thankx sanjeev.. just solve any 'lock' problem with sudo rm and installation will be easy...
