Hi All,

I built VMD 1.9.2 from source on Fedora 23. Unlike the case when I installed VMD from repositories or when I downloaded a binary, my TKConsole does not have working cursor up/down keys, which means I cannot use command history and makes life difficult.

I saw from a few posts that this problem is related to the version of the TKConsole. I see that the version I have is v2.3 (with Tcl8.6.4 / Tk8.6.4), and this problem is apparently fixed for higher versions of tkcon. Is there any way I can upgrade tkcon to have working command history?
