Please note that we have not taken
anything away! MacPyMOL simply is not (and has never been a Tcl/Tk/Tkinter)-based
application in its default configuration.
To run it as an X11-based Tcl/Tk: First,
make sure that X11 is installed and launched. Then make a copy of MacPyMOL and
When double-clicked, this renamed build
will then launch using the same Tcl/Tk/tkinter-based interface as the Windows
and Linux versions.

Subject: [PyMOL] plugins for
We have created a wizard that we would like to distribute, however a
fair number of our users will be using the MacPyMOL version. It seems
that the Plugin menu has been disabled as well as running scripts from the
"file->run..." menu. Also plugin scripts dropped by hand
into the modules/pmg_tk/startup folder are not executed. Why has it been
disabled? Is there anyway that I can allow users to install our wizard?
