Hello everyone,

My protein is too large to run APBS locally, or on my department's computing resources so I am trying to get jobs submitted to the OPAL client. I get the following error when I try to invoke the APBS Opal client (ApbsClient.py) on my laptop that runs Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop edition:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./APBS/bin/ApbsClient.py", line 544, in <module>
  File "./APBS/bin/ApbsClient.py", line 385, in execApbs
    opal_version = AppServicePortTypeSoapBindingSOAP(vars['service_url']).getAppMetadata(getAppMetadataRequest())._usage[-5:]
  File "/home/barronsc/APBS/lib/python2.6/site-packages/AppService_client.py", line 40, in getAppMetadata
    response = self.binding.Receive(getAppMetadataResponse.typecode)
  File "/home/barronsc/APBS/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ZSI/client.py", line 531, in Receive
  File "/home/barronsc/APBS/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ZSI/client.py", line 416, in ReceiveSOAP
    'Response is "%s", not "text/xml"' % self.reply_headers.type)
TypeError: Response is "text/html", not "text/xml"
The command line to invoke ApbsClient.py is:

python ./APBS/bin/ApbsClient.py --output-file=/dir/filename.out --non-blocking  /dir/filename.in &

Is this a Python 2.6 related-error? I didn't have any problems using Python 2.6 with PDB2PQR.
