Hi all,
I have RHEL WS 4.0 box with VMD 1.83 installed. The problem is the same that
I've seen in the Mailing List: when I type gopython in the vmd console I have
this error:

Info) VMD for LINUX, version 1.8.3 (February 15, 2005)
Info) http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/
Info) Email questions and bug reports to vmd_at_ks.uiuc.edu

vmd > gopython /home/simone/Desktop/ied-2.02/ied.py
Info) Starting Python...
Info) Text interpreter now Python
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "VMD", line 21, in ?
  File "/usr/local/lib/vmd/scripts/python/Tkinter.py", line 59, in ?
    import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: libtcl8.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory
Info) Text interpreter now Tcl
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 2, in ?
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'tkinter'

The next step I followed is to download at
http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/plugins/pythonlib/ the libraries and
follow the instructions. But the problem still remain.

My python version is the 2.3.3.
