I am performing a virtual screening of multiple ligands. My protein file’s name is protein.pdbqt.
It is present in the same folder but still unable to open and showing the following error:
Error: Could not open file "protein.pdbqt" for reading
Please help me what should I do.
- Make sure you have named your protein file as “protein.pdbqt” else change it in the config file accordingly.
- Check if this file is present in the same directory from where you are performing virtual screening.
- If this file is not there, then either provide a full path for this file or place this file in the same directory.
- Make sure it has permissions. If not, then type the following command:
$ sudo chmod +x protein.pdbqt
In case, if the issue still persists, then try recreating pdbqt file for protein.
