Yes 1.8.4a22. It gives "The autopsf package could not be loaded: ERROR>
Creation of window for 'autopsf' failed."

In addition I have a question. I am trying to use gromacs analysis tools,
for the dcd trajectory. From vmd I save the trajectory as trr file and it
works great, much better than trio.
How can I get the tpr tpb tpa xml file I would like to run g_saltbr,
g_hbond, g_dih, g_sas.
Thank you,

Armen Nalian

  That's with 1.8.4a22 right? If so, I should have a fix for that shortly.
