Getting the Debian package via apt-get

Note that as of December 2007, the Debian package available from this archive is very obsolete (dating from February 2005).

Debian users can also apt-get the package from by adding

deb unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src unstable main contrib non-free

to File icon.gif/etc/apt/sources.list, and doing:

$ apt-get update && apt-get install jmol/unstable

Moving Jmol into Debian

Egon Willighagen suggested to include Jmol into Debian. Of course I am interested in getting this application officially into Debian. But this is still a long way to go. The current packages are not of a quality as required by the Debian Policy Manual. So I am still searching for a co- or maybe even a main-maintainer, who helps with the packaging. Contact me, if you are interested. In this case you maybe also want to read more about DebianScience.

Reporting Bugs

If you find a Debian specific bug in the package or want to report a package wishlist entry or only a packaging issue, then please don't use the bug tracker. The easiest way to send a bug report is using the reportbug tool from the Debian distribution. Please do not send the report directly to the maintainer:

There is no record of this package in the bug tracking system. Send report directly to maintainer [Y|n|q|?]? n

Fill out the bug report and submit it (it will be sent to
