[gmx-users] Which kind of box?

I believe you want to set up a hexagonal prism according to your previous
mails, and the procedure you outline would be consistent with that. For
visualizing the system represented by a triclinic box the command for
trjconv is also correct. You might also want to try compact and rect for -ur
and compare the results, keeping in mind that it's all the same system, but
just different representations (interconversion of box types).
Do make sure that the box dimensions are large enough to contain your
protein when setting up the box with editconf. By the way, coming to think
of it, you may as well set the third angle to 60 degrees. That will give the
same box :p (that will describe the same lattice), but is more likely to
comply to Gromacs prerequisites for boxes.
