Be sure you have the latest version of AmberTools (1.2). There is no '&'
character in mopac.sh, at least that I can see. You might try to see how that

Usual question (sorry if I missed this in earlier posts): do the test cases
work? Go to $AMBERHOME/test/antechamber/tp and type './Run.tp' Does this
work? Look at the mopac.out file for clues if bad things happen. But this
will narrow down whether this is a problem with the mopac program itself, or
with the input for your particular molecule.
