Hi Jerome,

I've had this issue in the past when I compiled VMD myself. What I
recall the problem was is that tcl8.6 changed some things that broke
certain GUIs. The way I solved it for myself was to go back to tcl 8.5
and recompile, since I had science to do. :) If you want to fix the
problem, there are suggested solutions,,
but I haven't tried them myself.
