Hi Thomas.

Great work!

That looks like a real handsome plugin.
I succeded to get some of the scripts from the git repository to work out of the box. :-)
And I love the "info box".

But I see some funny behavior, which you probably are working on hard alreadt.

1) New "click boxes" open behind the other windows
When I click Settings->Add new directory, the "Choose directory" windows opens behind the plugin window and is "hidden".
I see the same behavior for other pop-up windows.

2) I cannot disable a installed plugin.
If i untick "Load on startup", the pymol command says: Plugin settings saved!
But when I restart pymol, it still loads the plugin.
I do have to say, that I am running the subversion version of pymol

3) Location of "Plugin search path"
I am running Mint 12, where I have not installed pymol from the Synaptic, but building pymol from the subversion repository.
There is some pymol Synaptic files at: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pmg_tk/startup, which is available, even though i did not install pymol through Synaptic.
The real location should be: /home/tlinnet/Software/pymol/modules/pmg_tk/startup, where the subversion folder is residing.
The "pymolplugins" locates the /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pmg_tk/startup, which is wrong. And the scripts i download from the git repository is placed here.

Anyway, I think you have done a great job!

Best
Troels

Greetings,

> I'm pleased to announce the first pre-release of the new plugin

For those adventurous types, please check out the code and give it a
shot. We are planning on incorporating this code directly into PyMOL
after we get community feedback. Make sure you read the README on the
git-hub site before installing the manager -- it makes things easier.

Great work, Thomas!

Cheers,
