So you seem to have solved the rlwrap issue. But there’s something wrong
with the path to the VMD binary. Are you sure it is located as
“/usr/local/lib/vmd” and not maybe “/usr/local/lib/vmd-1.9.2”? Check that
and change the startup script, there’s a variable at the top of the script
to point to the VMD location.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Dear Josh and users,

Thank you very much for your help. I did follow as you explained (I had to
place the "fi ; \\" expression before "chmod +x run_vmd_tmp ; \\"). But the
following error happened

/usr/local/bin/vmd: 480: exec: /usr/local/lib/vmd/vmd_LINUX: not found

I also tried the Axel's comments at
( but
nothing happens. The same error

/usr/local/bin/vmd: 480: exec: /usr/local/lib/vmd/vmd_LINUX: not found

Any comment would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi Majid,

Change the configuration file. Ubuntu's (and probably all debian
derivatives) have a version of rlwrap that don't play nice with csh=
