Bug Description

When trying to align a molecule to another, Pymol reports this error:

 Match-Error: unable to open matrix file '/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pymol//data/pymol/matrices/BLOSUM62'.

But pymol-package installs the file in /usr/share/pymol/matrices/BLOSUM62

(A temporary workaround is simply adding a symlink).

This is Debian bug #385550

I am using Pymol on Jaunty and came across a similar bug.
The error I see is this:
Match-Error: unable to open matrix file '/usr/share/pymol/pymol/matrices/BLOSUM62'.

When I checked, I noticed that /usr/share/pymol directory does not have another 'pymol' directory. However, /usr/share/pymol has a 'matrices' directory in which BLOSUM62 is present. So, I created a 'pymol' directory in /usr/share/pymol and made a symlink to matrices folder there.
That fixed it! But this is something that may need to be fixed so that it works out of the box.
