I believe your problem is that you named your file pymolrc.py instead of pymolrc

This causes pymol to read it as python rather than pymol commands.

Rename the file and you should be fine.

Hi Tsjerk,

I am attaching the file and the terminal text.

 This Executable Build integrates and extends Open-Source PyMOL 1.3.
Traceback (most recent call last):

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Thanks,

Hi Tanya,

Does it say more than "syntax error"? Can you send the whole output?
(copy crom the grey screen). In addition, can you send the pymolrc
file as attachment? There might be something to do with line endings;
so don't paste it in the mail, but attach the actual file that fails.

Cheers,

Tsjerk
