Betreff: vmd-l: Question


Hello VMD users,


I am trying to build a script for a workflow that I can carry out completely with the GUI. I used the "Log Tcl commands to file" setting but running the script with


vmd -e script.tcl


results in a few errors:


"illegal molecule specification '1'"

"illegal molecule specification '2'"

"illegal molecule specification '3'"


The scene is visible in the OpenGL window but not entirely correct. I have a scene where I load 4 files with different molecule id's. Three molecule id's have 1 representation, and one has 4 representations.


The GUI produced the file. I don't understand why it is not working. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am running version 1.9.1 on linux.
