This is likely due to faulty OpenGL driver.

Subject: [PyMOL] Highty shinning

Dear all,

I installed Pymol 0.99rc6 under Kubuntu linux (feisty) on my laptop (graphic card intel945). The program starts correctly, but when I rotate the structure, they became highty shinning (sounds like anormal gamma vale, huge values), cartoons are almost white. The pictures are normal after rendering, and this feature decrease if the slab value is changed . The problem disappears completely if I turn "off" dept_cue.

Does anyone have this problem?

Thanks in advance,
