Hi John,

There's no longer a need to run setup.sh, in fact this script has been
removed from the most recent versions of Galaxy.

The only thing you'll need to do is ensure that the newer version of the
`python` command appears in front of any other `python`s in your $PATH:

  % export PATH=/usr/local/BIMAS/python_255/bin:$PATH
  % sh run.sh

For persistance, set the PATH declaration in your shell's startup files
(~/.bash_profile).
