no. this _cannot_ be. you must have issued ./vmd in the wrong directory
or have mistyped it. using "source" cannot work, since you have a bash
as login shell but the installed vmd script is obviously the version for csh.
thus just for kicks try :

/bin/csh -c ./vmd

as was stated before, the solution is that you improve your knowledge
of linux. the problems you are having are not vmd problems, but stem
from lack of understanding of essential linux/unix issues.
