#21 Single window for pymol


I like the Macpymol interface where it has one window instead of the standard internal and external. Is that possible in linux? If not, can I get Macpymol to work on my linux machine?

    This should nowadays be possible through creation of a TOGL-based Tkinter widget to contain the PyMOL viewer window. However, the disadvantage of this approach is that it would eliminate the ability of the OpenGL window to run asynchronously and update in a Python-independent fashion.

    Generally speaking, we would like to see PyMOL packaged up and available inside a number of open-source widget architectures, including: Tkinter, PyQt, and wxPython.

    This is not yet available for Linux. When we move to a new UI, we'll consider this.
