Re: [PyMOL] Suse 10 and PyMOL crashes

2006-10-04 Thread Schubert, Carsten [PRDUS]

just an idea. Check if the /dev entry for your video card has the right
permissions. For the nvidia board I observed that sometimes the entries
(/dev/nvidia0 and/or /dev/nvidiactl) are crw-- instead of crw-rw-rw.
Check if changing the permissions on these entries or changing the owner
makes any difference.

good luck

 Subject: Re: [PyMOL] Suse 10 and PyMOL crashes
 Dear all,
 Unfortunately having a similar problem with Suse10 and PyMOL.
 - Freshly installed Suse 10 (KDE3.4) system with binary of 0.99 pymol.
 - the weird thing is: pymol starts fine if logged in as root
 - logged in as a user (pymol was 'installed' as a user, not 
 as root!) pymol crashes on start up with a segmentation fault
 /usr/share/pymol/pymol/pymol: line 14: 20717 Segmentation 
 fault  $PYMOL_PATH/pymol.exe $@
 - the thing i noticed is that as root the GL_RENDERER is 
 recognized during start up of pymol, as a user the 
 GL_RENDERER says 'unknown board'.
 So, although my system doesn't freeze, it seems to be a 
 similar problem.
 Anyone a good idea how to solve this? (I don't want to su to 
 root everytime i want to run pymol)
 Thanks a lot in advance.
 Best wishes,
 Joris Beld

[PyMOL] ribbon-like with one color

2006-10-04 Thread Mario Sanches
I am trying to color a structure with a ribbon like feature but not 
going from blue to red, but instead, using differente blue hues (or red 
hues, etc). Is that possible?
