Dear users,
I am trying to use *VMD1.9.4a57 (April 27, 2022)* in windows-11 laptop
having Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) installed. In WSL I have installed
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and configured the VMD successfully.

While running VMD, I am getting error about OptiXRenderer as shown below:

I freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04LTS along with the latest NVIDIA driver and
nvidia-cuda-toolkit. Still I am geeting error about "too old NVIDIA driver".

Furthermore, there is no option for Tachyon-Optix renderer in the rendering
dropdown menu. (please see attached image below.)

It will be great help if you guide me to *compile and use VMD in WSL* such
that I shall be able to generate high quality images using Tachyon-Optix
(GPU-accelerated) renderer.

Details of GPU and GPU-driver in my system are as follows:
