Hi Nils,

We've updated how PyMOL stores colors in sessions. You can try,

cmd.get_color_tuple(cmd.get("bg_rgb"))

or if you need it as a list:

list(cmd.get_color_tuple(cmd.get("bg_rgb")))

Cheers,

-- Jason

Hello,
 
I recently installed PyMOL 1.6 on my Debian machine. I have noticed that the description of the background colors has somehow changed. The command "get bg_color" returns [R,G,B] values in all previous versions, while since 1.6 it only returns values  like "black" (which messes up some of my plugins and scripts). I'm not sure if this some kind of bug or a new way of handling colors...
When I try to set the background gradient colors (set bg_rgb_top/bottom) I get an endless output of "Setting-Error: type read mismatch (color) 664" - I have to kill and restart the program to get rid of the message. Same happens with my scripts using cmd...
Can someone confirm these problems? Perhaps I'm doing something wrong here.
 
Thanks in advance,
Nils
