I am trying to run Naccess on ubunthu 11.10. I have installed it .But I don't know the usage of Naccess. After the installation , I should create an alias and has to include it in .cshrc file. I can't find the .cshrc file in home directory. I am new to Ubuntu. Please help me to create alias in .cshrc.
I dont know about the software, but alias is nice tool to create a shortcut to a big command with your custom names.
I can make an alias to a ssh email@example.com as alias myserver='ssh firstname.lastname@example.org'.
So, from now on, whenever I will write in a terminal myserver this will point to my ssh command and it will be excuted.
To make this alias load by default whenever you boot the system, you have to save it in you .bashrc or .bash_profile and the refresh it using source command like source .bashrc
.bashrc is for bash and .cshrc is for (t)csh- cshell. Read more info about it here. If a .bashrc or .cshrc is not present, you just have to create one in your home dir and then make an alias as they say on the Naccess website alias naccess '/home/username/naccess_directory/naccess'. So, from now on you don't have to write full command with path, you can just write naccess or you can also put it in path (.bashrc), if you don't wanna use alias
I am also having trouble running naccess. When I tried to install it using cygwin, apparently cygwin does not have an f77 compiler and to avoid any more complications we decided it's best that I run it through my university on a secure server. After logging into the server, i run naccess and get the following error:
usage: you must supply a pdb file format
Do you have any idea what could be wrong? I know it is a pdb file because I can view it as a text file. As well, I can run it using visualization softwares like PyMol.
