I added these entries to .embossrc, and they then indeed show up when 
I run showdb.

Following the example in the tutorial 
I now  run seqret, but get the following error:

Input sequence(s): embl:xlrhodop
Error: Unable to read sequence 'embl:xlrhodop'

Do I need to do something else before I can use seqret (and other programs)?

Is there a place in the docs on how to use/access databases?

thanks again,

- Koen.
