Dear Warren & pymol-users,

If you remember about my freeGLUT problem, I have partially solved it, but still not 100%.
Yes, PyMOL works OK with freeGLUT 2.4.x. My problem was that if I launch the program from command line, in a terminal window, the error appears:

freeglut (/home/hteran/tmp/programs/pymol/pymol.exe): Unable to create direct context       rendering for window 'PyMOL Viewer'
This may hurt performance.

BUT if I launch the program from the KDE menu, it simply works great! I can enable the option "run in terminal window" and even though no freeGLUT error appears in the term, and PyMOL is as fast as it should be!

So, the question is can adv linux user can point me how to solve the problem when I want to run pymol from command line? It seems a problem with the path, but I can not go further ...

Hugo,

I believe Donnie is mistaken:  PyMOL runs just fine with FreeGLUT 2.4.0
(don't know about all 2.4.x though).  Lack of an ability to create a direct
rendering context is most likely a problem with your graphics driver, X11
configuration, pixel depth, or with the interaction between FreeGLUT and
your graphics driver.

Same problem with freeglut2.2.0
Isn't it strange that pymol + freeglut2.4 is NOT compatible, 
when it is specifically said in pymol distribution that one 
of the dependences is freeglut2.4????

Thanks,

2.4.0-4                installed

2.4.0-4                installed
		    

	
	freeglut-2.4 + pymol = broken. Try glut instead, or 
perhaps freeglut-2.2
	or freeglut CVS.
