I have successfull installed dock (6.2) on an ubuntu linux machine 9.04, and
unfortunately not without difficulties.
First thing you need to install:


as explained on the DOCK website in the FAQ section:

in the version 6.2 of DOCK there were some heading missing in some of the
files .cpp present in the folder dock6/src/dock. You need to insert these
headings...I sent an e-mail to the community prevoiously specifying whose
files that need to be modified.
You can find my suggestions here:


I don't know if in the 6.3 release these header missing problems have been
In addition, after the command ./configure "gnu" open the file config.h
created by the configure script and change the name of fortran compiler from
f77 to gfortran.
This actually is needed because in ubuntu f77 is not released and there are
problems of dependencies if you try to install it. Gfortran works fine and
dock will be compiled without problems.

On my ubuntu machine DOCK 6.2 worked perfectly.
Hope this can help who has got problems installing DOCK on an ubuntu
