What are the Gnome Chemistry Utils

The Gnome Chemistry Utils provide some utilities and a library containing Gtk widgets and some C++ classes related to chemistry. They are used in both Gnome Crystal and GChemPaint which will be included in future versions.

To compile and use the Gnome Chemistry Utils, you need libglade-2, goffice, GtkGLExt, and OpenBabel, and their own dependencies. Everything except OpenBabel is available from the Gnome repository or one of its mirrors.
