Dear all users,

I have just installed VMD on ubuntu, by following instruction on youtube.

I downloaded
and command
tar -xvf vmd-1.9.3.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA8-OptiX4-OSPRay111p1.opengl.tar.gz
and go to vmd-1.9.3/src
and command
sudo make install

and it was successfully installed with no error.

But when I open vmd, main menu doesn't show up.

I found similar error on mailing list, so I've tried to look at .vmdrc file

But in .vmdrc file, "menu main on" command is written.

Also command on ubuntu "menu main on" didn't work.

This is the message that I got when I command vmd
