I use VMD 1.8.7 on a Mac running OS X 10.6.2
The problem is that I can't use VMD from the command
line. It starts up and will even load and display a structure
specified as a command line argument. But the spinning
beach ball of death never goes away. Other students at
my school that use Macs and VMD are having the same
problem. Does anyone know how to fix this?
