Problem with VMD on iBook

    My problem is this: when I start VMD 1.7 on my iBook, the VMD console and the OpenGL display window show up, BUT the window with the command buttons does not. The same configuration on a PowerMac G3 works just fine, so it's either a VMD problem and/or an XFree86/XDarwin problem specific to the iBook. For reference, my conficguration is:iBook with Mac OS X 10,1, Xfree86 4.1.0, XDarwin 1.0a3, OroborOSX 0p.75a2 (on both machines).

    VMD is a molecular visualization program:
    Any hint appreciated!Thanks,

      I haven't tried to duplicate this yet, but here's something to try: set the G3's display to the same screen size and color depth as the iBook, and then run XDarwin and VMD. It may be simply that VMD doesn't like the smaller screen. Also try both fullscreen and rootless modes.
