I am using the latest version of VMD (1.9.1 LINUX64) and I have in my
~/.vmdrc the command
mol default style {CPK 1.0 0.4 32 16}
and it works on newly loaded molecules via the File-> New Molecule.
But when I load a molecule from the command line with vmd,
the molecule is displayed in the default (lines).
Is there a way that I can change this behavior so that when I load the
molecule from the
command line the result is the same as when loading the molecule from the
File menu ?
Thanks a lot,
Paulo E. Abreu
