I am attempting to install ClustalX onto a Ubuntu 15 workstation, and have been experiencing difficulties in the compilation step. The instructions indicate that qt developer 4.3 or higher is required. The workstation I'm accessing does not have qt, but I'm certain that there is some way to compile the executables directly and complete the installation. There is no Makefile. The file clustalx2 is a bash script, clustalx is an ascii text executable. I had assumed that the latter could be compiled with C++, but running gcc clustalx gives a file format not recognizable error.
If somebody knows how to complete the compilation without the makefile and qt I would appreciate any suggestions.
