Updates can be installed either by using Update Manager or by performing the following steps:
Step 0: Download and install latest release (if you don't have one already installed).
Step 2: Create a new directory (e.g.
Step 3: Extract downloaded file to mgl_nightly.
Step 4: Change into newly created directory (
cd mgl_nightly) and run adt, pmv or vision from there.
Alternatively, if you prefer starting ADT, PMV or Vision by clicking on the corresponding icons or don't want to change directories every time, edit runAdt.py, runPmv.py or runVision.py and add the following code at line #4.
The runAdt.py, runPmv.py or runVision.py are in AutoDockTools/bin, Pmv/bin and Vision/bin folders respectively, that in turn is located in MGLToolsPckgs folder.
Please note that nightly builds may contain changes that are backwards incompatible, in which case you'll need to replace these scripts with the one provided in the nightly builds. An example of backwards-incompatible change is the change in API that would result in a Traceback similar to:
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'foo'
If your OS is not listed in the nightly builds, you can access our CVS repository and build the latest MGLTools from the source.
