  It sounds to me like something is amiss with your
settings. This is what usually creates problems with clicking the
VMD icon to start it. What occurs when you click the program icon?
No response? Perhaps something else has become the default application
for running .command files? Did you install a new application recently?

I can start it from accessing the contents of vmd directory and then double clicking the vmd launcher. I was wondering if it is problem with X11 and do I need to reinstall the X11 or if any one has other suggestion that would be really great.
