Are you on Linux?  This was a problem which existed on certain Linux versions, perhaps due to an X11, Tk, or threading bug.  The only sure solution is to update to a different Linux distribution, but you might try different PyMOL versions just to be sure that there isn’t one which works.

Subject: [PyMOL] about tcl/tk gui window


Dear all:
 When I load pymol,I found that I can't type anything in the tcl/tk gui window.
So I can only enter the command in the Pymol viewer. Anyone had the same problem and how to fix it?
Thanks in advance!
