For some reason I just can't get APBS to render an electrostatic surface for
I have installed pymol 0.99 beta37 and APBS 4.0 on Windows XP
Here are the steps I currently take:
1) I load my PDB molecule into Pymol
2) go to Plug-ins and click on APBS tools
3) click on APBS location and give locations for binary (installed in
C:\program files\APBS) and psize.py (located in C:\program
4) click on set grid ---> output:
Maximum number of grid points exceeded. Old grid dimensions were [129, 129,
Fine grid points rounded down from [107, 107, 107]
New grid dimensions are [97, 97, 97]
APBS Tools: coarse grid: (82.470,90.545,97.723)
APBS Tools: fine grid: (68.512,73.262,77.484)
APBS Tools: center: (29.733,20.940,40.031)
APBS Tools: fine grid points (97,97,97)
5) click on Run APBS --> output:
ObjectMapLoadDXFile-Error: Unable to open file!
6) click on Visualization tab and click update --> nothing happens.
Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
Thank you so much for any assistance.

I have a little problem with manual docking.
I load 2 pdb as 2 different objects.
I define the mouse in editing mode and shift+left-click to turn and
shift+middle-button tu drag.
unfortunatly, the molecule splits in two and loops and helices streches to
follow one piece of the protein.
any ideas to keep the protein as one single piece?
I am using version 0.98 on windows xp.
