I just recently installed Ubuntu on my new laptop. I wanted to get Folding at Home (the program that runs protein-folding biochemical simulations on your computer for biomedical research). It seems there's a version of FAH for Linux, but the installation procedures seem extremely technical and complex; I'm just barely learning to use the Terminal.

I found something called Origami which is like Folding At Home for Ubuntu I think (not too sure) I ran the install commands, and I was expecting to see something like my old PS3's version of FAH; the early versions of the PS3 actually came with FAH installed and it would actually DISPLAY the protein simulations.

Origami seems to be running when I run my System's Monitor, but I don't see anything; I guess it's only doing the calculations on my CPU without displaying.

Is there a graphical, visual version of Folding At Home for Ubuntu?
