Hi Bernhard,

I just installed this new driver : xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.13.901-2ubuntu2~xup~maverick_i386.deb

And the problem remains the same. Also tried installing the combo of :

libdrm-intel1_2.4.23+git20110119.550fe2ca-0ubuntu0sarvatt~maverick_i386.deb
xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.14.0+git20110220.9599fde6-0ubuntu0sarvatt~maverick_i386.deb

And no luck either.

Which Ubuntu version are you using, 10.10 or 11.04 ?

Also, could you please tell me exactly which driver version are you using ? Or how did you install them, so I can follow your steps.

Thanks

Hello Santiago,

have you tried using the graphics drivers from the xorg-edgers project?

That helped me with the stick coloring problem:

and may also help with your problem.

Subject: [PyMOL] Pymol 1.4.1 problem coloring cartoons. They turn to
black.
Date: Thu, 28 Jul 2011 11:37:56 +0200

Dear Pymol Users,

I've found a problem with Pymol version 1.4.1. I am using Ubuntu 10.10
in a laptop with Intel Mobile 4 graphics controller.

The problem comes when I load any PDB file, then try to show it as a
cartoon. It displays the cartoon but in black color, so I cannot see it
unless I turn the background to white. With "lines" it's correctly
displayed but "cartoon" or "sticks" show the same behaviour (colored
black).

This only happens if I use the "set use_shaders, 1". If I don't use this
command, the "cartoon" and "stick" are displayed in the right colour,
but then I have problems coloring the sticks (it's a known bug :
http://www.mail-archive.com/pymol-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg09181.html).

I don't know if this is related but immediately after loading the pdb I
get this message in the pymol console :
PyMOL>load FILE.pdb
 ObjectMoleculeGuessValences(
1,1): Unreasonable connectivity in heteroatom,
 unsuccessful in guessing valences.

Is this a known bug ? Does anybody know what to do ?

Thanks

Regards,
Santiago

By the way, this is a relevant piece of output of my glxinfo command on
linux :
