Downloading and installing

Download QSoas

QSoas is free software; you can download its source code below, or browse the latest code in the github repository.

Binary images

Starting from version 3.1, the binary images of the installers for windows and MacOS are provided free of charge.

The download is a single ZIP archive containing the installers for windows (.msi), windows 64 (-win64.msi) and MacOS (.pkg). For installing, just extract the archive, and double click on the relevant package. As of now, the binaries are not signed, which means you have to authorize unsafe installations to get QSoas to install properly.

Source code

Compiling from source

Version 3.2 of QSoas requires the following software packages to compile:

  • Qt version 5, from the Qt archive.
  • Ruby, which is only necessary for compilation, but not necessary afterwards.
  • mruby, version 1.4.0 or 2.1.0 (included). The versions inbetween have issues that make QSoas crash, and the versions 3.0 and later are not yet supported.
  • The GNU Scientific Library

On a Debian (or Ubuntu) system, you can install the build dependencies by running (as root):

~ apt install ruby-dev libmruby-dev libgsl-dev libqt5opengl5-dev qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev libqt5svg5-dev qttools5-dev

Build running the following commands in the unpacked archive directory:

~ qmake ~ make

You may need to use qmake -qt=5 instead of just qmake.


Intranet downloads are available for collaborators located in our laboratory.

Download and install SOAS

SOAS is no longer developed.

Option 1. Debian installer for LINUX (New in March 2011).

Debian users can add the following stanza to their /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://bip.cnrs-mrs.fr/bip06/soas/distrib/debian/ sid main

And then run as root:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install soas

For Ubuntu versions earlier than natty, the following additional steps should be performed before:

# wget http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/pool/main/s/scalc/libscalc0_0.2.4-1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libscalc0_0.2.4-1_amd64.deb

(substitute amd64 for i386 if you’re using a 32 bits environment).

Option 2. Mac OS X users (10.4 and above) can install the binaries.

Kevin Hoke put together these self-extracting binary distributions of SOAS:

  • Soas3.7.2-intelMac.zip (2010/06/16) Installer for Macs with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and later (not Core Solo or Core Duo), running MacOS 10.5 through 10.14. Note: MacOS 10.15 and later have not been tested. A working installation of Xquartz is also required for MacOS 10.6 and above.
  • Soas3.7.2-PowerPCmac.zip (2010/06/17) Installer for any Mac hardware running MacOS 10.4 through 10.5.
  •  soas-3.6.4.zip (2008/05/23). Run this installer first, then update with soas37.zip. This is a binary that might work on any Mac that is running 10.5 (Leopard) or 10.6. It will not run on earlier versions of the MacOS.
  • soas-3.6.3.zip (2008/03/04).

Option 3 (the hard way): Build your own

SOAS uses the graphic program and libraries of GILDAS , which should be installed first (you do not need the latest version; note that we haven’t tested compatibility with GILDAS distributions younger than that released in august 2008). There are other prerequisites: check the README and INSTALL files for installation notes, and the FAQ. Here are MAc OS X compilation notes by Kevin Hoke.
