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.

You can also purchase already built applications for a small fee, both to save you the hassle of compiling the software yourself and to support the development of QSoas.

Source code

Compiling from source

Version 3.0 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 after 2.1.0 (included). The versions inbetween have issues that make QSoas crash.
  • 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.

Pre-built applications

Compiling QSoas from source on MacOSX and on Windows is possible, but it is not easy. To make your life easier, our partner eValorix offers for sale pre-built applications

Note: the price on that site is expressed in Euros or Canadian dollars, see for instance XE for currency conversion.

The download is a Zip file that contains:

  • a .msi (MS installer) file that contains the installer for Vista/7/8/10
  • a -winxp.msi file that contains the version for windows XP
  • a .pkg that contains the installer for Intel Macs (32 and 64 bits).
  • and the .tar.gz archive containing the source code (the same as from the download link above)

For MacOS, QSoas is also available as a homebrew recipe. We are not involved in its maintenance, and have not tested it.

Free pre-built application for QSoas 1.0 !

Those unable or unwilling to pay the price for the pre-built recent images can download and install version 1.0 for free.


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.
