 This looks like a straight build. So I'm a bit confused as well, why this is being appended. I don't know if we have an Ubuntu system around here. Do you see the same thing APBS 1.2.1?

The binary from sourceforge gives me

mglerner@mglerner-ubuntu9:~/Downloads$ apbs-1.2.1-ia32/bin/apbs 
apbs-1.2.1-ia32/bin/apbs: error while loading shared libraries: libg2c.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It turns out that Ubuntu no longer ships with libg2c. Further, it appears that there's no real "official" way to install it (perhaps google is failing me here though). Instead, you're supposed to build with gfortran. I don't know how many Ubuntu users you have, but you might consider putting a gfortran-compiled version up on sourceforge.

So, after compiling the 1.2.1 sources via a vanilla "./configure; make", the output is named "pymol-generated.dx" as expected. I'm using the exact same pymol-generated.in file.

Do you have any other ideas as to why the distributed version changes the name?

In the worst case, I could make the plugin check for <foo>.dx and, upon not finding it, check for <foo>-PE0.dx. That could lead to errors, but it's better than nothing.

BTW, I'm doing my Ubuntu testing under VirtualBox. VMWare may be a bit better in general, but VirtualBox is a fantastic free way to keep system images around.
