Dear Elaine,

I was trying to use Chimera to minimize a structure I modified and I got
the following result. It seems that Chimera was not able to assign the
charge to the modified Phe residue (I added one sulfur atom at the beta
position of this Phe reidue), do you know how I can fix it?

(UNK+PHE) Running:
/Applications/Chimera.app/Contents/Resources/bin/amber11/bin/sqm -O -i
sqm.in -o sqm.out

(UNK+PHE) Error: cannot run
"/Applications/Chimera.app/Contents/Resources/bin/amber11/bin/sqm -O -i
sqm.in -o sqm.out" of bcc() in charge.c properly, exit

(UNK+PHE) Running:
/Applications/Chimera.app/Contents/Resources/bin/amber11/bin/bondtype -j


(UNK+PHE) Running:
/Applications/Chimera.app/Contents/Resources/bin/amber11/bin/atomtype -i
