  1. I am very interested in the GAMOS TISSUE OPTICS code provided on your website, however I find it really was not easy to install following the guidance for our Windows users being not familar with Linux system. I write to ask, would you have the plan to provide the well-installed GAMOS virtual machine like Vmware? Thus the user can download all of them directly, which will really very very convenient and relieve the installance annoyance for us. Thank your work very very much!

  2. Hello,

    Whenever I type cd in the directory it is located in, I get the error message “Not a Directory” When I backtracked, I realized that I hadn’t copied and uncompressed the GamosCore.tar.gz file. However, I am unable to find it when I look into the directory as described in the user manual.

  3. Hi all,

    Is tissue optics plugin compatible with GAMOS 5.1?
    I am asking this, because the previous version was compatible with GAMOS 5.0.

    Many thanks!!

  4. Hello,

    thank you in advance
