Avogadro and GAMESS-US

I think the most popular method is TDDFT (TDDFT=EXCITE in $CONTRL). This will work for RHF and B3LYP, so the other wave function options should be disabled, if TDDFT is turned on. For CCSD(T) one could set CCTYP=CR-EOM if compute is set to “UV-Vis”.

Hello, I am trying to use Avogadro 1.0.3 and GAMESS to generate transition energies and oscillator strengths to generate UV-Vis spectra. What functionality should the “Compute…” button in the GAMESS submenu have? For me it has no effect. Should this link to a specific command? I have previously been using Gabedit to run GAMESS calculations from my computer, so I know that it is all installed correctly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
