Execute starting from a PDB file, and you will get the
Gaussian input. In this input, replace the keywords hf/6-31G* by
b3lyp/6-311+G**, for instance.

To interface GAMESS-US, three GAMESS binaries have to be found:
rungms, gamess.0n.x and ddikick.x. If one of them is not found
PC-GAMESS is interfaced instead. Check in your terminal if these
programs/scripts are found by using the 'which' command:

which rungms
If not found, update your $PATH shell variable. Please see the RED-III
FAQ (from the Documentation link) for information about GAMESS-US and
PC-GAMESS execution/setting/interfacing.
