Hi Yong,

I replaced "opal1" with "opal2" in ApbsClient.py and that fixed the problem as well.

Hi Sean,

Thanks for the email. This is due to the fact that NBCR recently updated the OPAL service urls (from *opal* to *opal2*). This issue is addressed in the trunk version of APBS, you can check out a copy of the trunk version by:

$ svn co https://apbs.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/apbs apbs

Please let us know if you have further difficulties with the trunk version.

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>

    '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.
