I am performing VS of 100 compounds. I have defined ligand names in a file named ligands.txt. 

But it is showing this error after running vina command:

  1. Make sure you have named your ligand names file as “ligands.txt”.
  2. Check if this file is present in the same directory from where you are performing virtual screening.
  3. If this file is not there, then either provide a full path for this file or place this file in the same directory.
  4. Make sure it has permissions. If not, then type the following command:
$ sudo chmod +x ligands.txt
