[Chimera-users] [Dock-fans] Help with antechamber

I tried the dockprep.py file you pointed to me a few emails ago. It seems
like its exactly what I am looking for. The only problem is I get an error
at the moment; I also have two other questions about it.
ep.py file you pointed to me a few emails ago. It seems like its exactly
what I am looking for. The only problem is I get an error at the moment; I
also have two other questions about it.
Here is the command I used:
./chimera --nogui pdb:2h4f $DESKTOP/dockprep.py
The program then returns a bunch of text on what its doing. When adding the
charges to the ligands with the AM1-BCC method is when the error pops up.
Here is the (slightly abridged) error message, plus a few lines back:
*Running ANTECHAMBER for residue NAD
Running ANTECHAMBER command:
-ek qm_theory='AM1', grms_tol=0.02, tight_p_conv=0, scfconv=1.d-10, -i

Error while processing /home/abhay/Desktop/dockprep.py:
Failure running ANTECHAMBER for residue NAD
Check reply log for details*
I am not sure what the problem is. $AMBERHOME and $DOCK_HOME are not
defined, but that only seemed to cause problems before. Perhaps they need
to be defined now?
I would give you the reply log, but I don't know how to find it. I tried
$ ./chimera --start Reply_Log --nogui pdb:2h4f $DESKTOP/dockprep.py
I also tried reply_log, Reply_log, reply_Log, ReplyLog, replyLog, Replylog,
and transposing --start and --nogui. None of those worked either. The
program immediately returns:
*Starting extension 'Reply_Log' failed* (or whatever the pertinent
permutation of "reply_log" happens to be.)
Assuming this can be fixed easily, I have one more question: this appears
to only prepare the receptor for docking. What about prepping the ligand?
Does that need its own new script?
Thank you so much for your help,
