PMF and work distribution

I am performing SMD simulations and I want to calculate Potential of Mean
Force (PMF) using those simulations. As far as I know, work distribution
(or force distribution) has to be gaussian to calculate PMF (with
Jarzynski's method and second order cumulant expansion). I was wondering
how can I check if my work distribution is gaussian.

Thanks in advance,
Mustafa Tekpinar
