[bioontology-support] Use of BioPortal software

Hi Guadelupe

NCBO Appliance doesn't have graphical interface or mouse support because it was designed to be primary accessed over HTTP protocol from a web browser on your desktop or via SSH for some administrative or troubleshooting tasks.  If you successfully completed the initial configuration via terminal you should not need to have a graphical interface to work with it.  If you still wish to have a graphical desktop manager you can install it yourself.  There are a number of articles out there describing how to install desktop environment on CentOS.

Subject: [bioontology-support] Use of BioPortal software

Good Morning

I am Guadalupe Candia Zavaleta schoolgirl of the DR. Moises González García in CENIDET (México´s national center of research and technological development), we are working in the storage area ontologies, our purpose is to store descriptions of patterns analysis including their semantics through a hierarchy of ontologies and individuals. (Moisés González García, Rubí Celia Martínez Jiménez, Juan Moisés Villamil Brito, Ramiro Mar López Ramírez; Stable Template for Stable Analysis Patterns; IEEE Latin American Transactions, Vol. 13, Issue 7, 2015).

The reason for this email is to ask the more attentively provide me the necessary information to install and manage application NCBO BioPortal they provided. Install the virtual machine and in the end I get a terminal where I ask only register the password and log in as root, after there, not to perform and try to install graphical mode but does not allow me to use the mouse and keyboard. Mount the virtual machine on Windows 10.

My BioPortal is: gcz

Postscript: I had sent an email to support at<mailto:support at> before but got no answer.

Thank in advance for your attention.
