Rocky Linux 9 and OpenMopac

I was disappointed that the effective EOL of CentOS 8 came so soon, so I was glad to discover that Rocky Linux, now at v 9, is a good replacement. I have installed WebMO 22, G16, and ORCA 5 by just following the directions on this site. The installation script for OpenMopac (openmopac-x.x.x-linux.ru...

MOPAC v 22.0.3

The new version of MOPAC, v22.0.3, does not require a license. MOPAC2016 is no longer supported, according to the website http://openmopac.net . Here is my recent experience - YRMV. The new version is easy to install; however, correct parsing of output.out files by WebMO v19 requires two minor edits...

Guest account under external authenication?

I wish to (briefly) allow an off-campus colleague to visit and use our WebMO website (google uaf webmo). However, although the guest can log on and begin creating a job, the server box in the subsequent window shows only "server.domain.edu", and there the guest is stuck. It does not help if the gues...

Re: How to simplify a template

Thanks, JR. That works. In the copy of Molecular Energy, which I call "Easy Molecular Energy", everything after "$basisSet[%END%]" , except $solvent, is deleted, which make the Advanced Tab much smaller. However, for gen chem students I decided to simplify by just using Molecular Energy template, an...

How to simplify a template

I wish to create simplified Gaussian templates for use by gen chem students. In a recent attempt with Template Editor (v 19 e), I Save As the Molecular Energy template to another name, but then the Variables table is grayed out. If I delete terms on the Template page, the user gets only an error mes...

Re: orca 5 and nbo error

Thanks, JR, On our systems, those lines now read as follows. Note the use of "i4". "i8" does not work. $ENV{'NBOEXE'} = "/usr/local/nbo7/bin/nbo7.i4.exe"; #update as appropriate if using NBO $ENV{'GENEXE'} = "/usr/local/nbo7/bin/gennbo.i4.exe"; #update as appropriate if using NBO These are changed i...

Please set specular off

Please turn off the shine, or specular spots, on atoms in WebMO. These spots make it difficult to read the index number or symbol. At least add another entry in the Display tab under Preferences to turn on/off specular spots.

Failed MOPAC job is "complete"

A common error in submitting jobs through WebMO is to assign singlet multiplicity to an odd-electron species. Gaussian, ORCA and Gamess tag this as an error, and it is duly reported as a "failed" job in the WebMO Job Manager. With these types of jobs, MOPAC also stops immediately with the message *S...
