After editing ~/.pymolrc and running pymol again, the problem still persists with message: " Detected OpenGL version 2.0 or greater. Shaders available."
Also, I'm a bit confused about .pymolrc from the link (http://www.pymolwiki.org/index.php/Pymolrc), is there really load_sep.py script, or it's just an example of how to launch a script during runtime? (I removed that line from rc)
Try putting this in your ~/.pymolrc file
set use_shaders, 0
set sphere_mode, 0
and re-start PyMOL.
