I like to use the tk console in vmd rather than the standard terminal. I
tried putting:

menu tkcon on

in my .vmdrc, but because apparently the plugins are loaded after the
.vmdrc is applied, this does not work. Is there any way around this?
My solution was to make a tcl procedure that opens the menu, and changes
the position of the tkcon as well as some other plugin menus. This
works, but you do have to run the procedure from the terminal.
