Who would like to see Linux versions of ChemDraw and Chem3D?

My work involves computational molecular modeling and data analysis on Linux and Windows, but my preferred OS is Linux (currently Linux Mint 20.3 Xfce, based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS).

Although I can use ChemAxon MarvinSketch on Linux, it would also be great to be able to use ChemDraw and Chem3D as native applications on Linux. Are there others in the group who would like to see Linux versions of ChemDraw and Chem3D?

Dear Hypersphere,

I use Linux Mint too (e.g. System:    Kernel: 5.4.0-122-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 9.4.0 
           Desk
           base: Ubuntu 20.04 focal )

However Linux Versions of ChemDraw or Chembiodraw and Chem3D will be too expensive for a compilation .

I use Wine  7.0 for ACD Labs e.g. chemsketch exe (windows application).

It works very well.

You can try to start the chemdraw exe with wine 7.0 (Wine 7.0 /win 10 ).

Good luck and I am waiting your feedback (It is for me interesting too)

I send you some  ACD labs freeware pictures  (as above described /Wine 7.0 /windows 10/ acd labs freeware install.exe (no problem). Acd labs is better than Marvin sketch and is free of charge too.

I tested for you Ibuprofen (like in video /Marvin  homepage)

According to my previous answer, I downloaded yesterday the ChemDraw Pro installer. After extracting  the COS21.0.0  exe, I started the installation of ChemOffice Plus. The installation was with Wine 7.0 /windows 10  problemless.

The drawing of my dye e.g. (code name 9CNPF)    e.g. 3,6-diaminoacridine-9-carbonitrile occurred problemless too and the 1H NMR estimation too.

However a very old little bug (see my previous reports about bugs) can be found in ChemDraw and Mestrec e.g. Mnova too. It is the solvent used in the NMR estimation . DMSO is wrong.

DMSO-d6 is right. This bug is still not fixed.

Another comments in due course

According to my post (see above) :

Mexstrec slight bug about DMSO  instead DMSO-d6.

As ex-referee, I saw this slight bug in articles where the NMR spectra were recorded with CS Chem NMR Pro or Mestrec/MNova 12

When a scientist uses the ACD Labs full version, the  next picture shows the correct designation for the NMR solvents.
