Fetch Path

From PyMOLWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fetch_Path sets the default path that PyMOL uses to load files from before it tries to download them from the PDB.


If you have a local copy of the PDB on your machine, say in directory /spc/pdb then, once you set Fetch_Path to that directory the fetch command will look in /spc/pdb before going to the PDB for your file. Also, the files fetched from the PDB are stored here once downloaded. PyMOL will only look for files starting with the pdb code in lower case.


On Linux or MacOS:

set fetch_path, /spc/pdb

On Windows:

set fetch_path, D:\mypdbs

Using ~/fetch_path:

cmd.set('fetch_path', cmd.exp_path('~/fetch_path'), quiet=0)


Put this in your pymolrc to make it permanent.
