[gmx-users] hydrogen bonds of peptide with lipids

Yes, I am using united atoms. I am looking for H-bonds between phosphate
groups of lipids and the H-bonding atoms of the protein. i have used g_hbond
to find the relevant intra-protein H-bonds, but need to find protein-lipid

I tried using g_hbond, using the protein and POPC as the two groups, but
g_hbond does not detect any acceptor or donor atoms in POPC, because I get
something like:

Calculating hydrogen bonds between SideChain_ARG_12 (12 atoms) and POPC
(17524 atoms)
Found 3 donors and 3 acceptors

So, the question is: where are the listings for acceptor and donor atoms for
using g_hbond

I hope this clarifies issues. Thank you
