When I try to switch over to the Python interpreter using 'gopython', the
following error occurs:

File "<string>", line 1, in ?
  File "/home/brittanym/vmd-1.8.6/python/", line 62, in ?
    from types import *
ImportError: No module named types

I have read in the archives that changing PYTHONHOME and PYTHONPATH
variables can fix similar problems. I have tried setting PYTHONHOME to
/usr/local/bin, the same directory as PYTHONPATH, and a few other
variations with no change. If PYTHONPATH isn't set to the location of the module above, I get an error stating _tkinter cannot be found.
The version of python installed on my system independent of VMD has a
module named types, but is it possible to have two locations specified for
VMD to look for modules?

The other error I get is:
Could not find Numeric Python version >= 22.0
ImportError: No module named numeric_version
My second questions is where should numpy be installed so that VMD will
locate it, and do I need to change the name or do something beyond the
typical module installation?
