PyMOL relies entirely upon Python’s built-in proxy support (via urllib), so if you can get a Python script configured to work properly through your proxy, then PyMOL should work as well.

Subject: [PyMOL] Loading PDB Files does not work with Linux


Hi all,


I can't get the functions to load pdb-data from the internet to work under Linux. Neither "fetch" nor "load http://..." nor the plugin will work (connection error - please check your internet access).

Under windows at least the load... method and the plugin are operable, the fetch method does not work either.

The familiar plugin also is of no use. The Pymol versions are 1.0 and 1.2r1.

We have to use a http-proxy, but the proxy-url and -port are present in the environment variable http_proxy. I would really like to use Linux, so, do you have any hints? How should I setup pymol as to use the proxy?
