Hi, I had written in a few days ago about compiling VMD against my native python build.
I thought I had gotten it to work, but I didn't check everything, and now notice that the "Extensions" drop-down menu in the "VMD Main" window isn't populated; clicking on it just brings down a small empty frame.
I have these lines:
set auto_path [linsert $auto_path 0 [file join $env(HOME) vmdplugins]]
vmd_plugin_scandirectory [file join $env(HOME) vmdplugins [vmdinfo arch] molfile] *.so
in my .vmdrc file, and it looks like it is, indeed, executing those commands. The ~/vmdplugins/LINUXAMD64/molfile directory has plenty of * files. So does the directory in the vmd installation directory.
The other menus are fine, just Extensions.
Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated!
