We just installed vmd in a fresh system. Running vmd gave segmentation fault until installed more package (xf86-video-intel xorg xorg-init fltk glade), not sure which one make it work. It seems there is a missing dependency.

Near the Upstream URL. Here: https://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Development/Download/download.cgi?PackageName=VMD

@alexi But from where to download? The link above doesn't work also.

alexispaz commented on 2021-07-02 12:12

Darnock, you have to download yourself and put it in the PKGBUILD folder.

Can not update vmd 1.9.4a51-2:

ERROR: vmd-1.9.4a51.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA102-OptiX650-OSPRay185.opengl.tar.gz is not a URL and I did not find it in the source directory.

It seems the link for .tar.gz is broken, so sources can't be downloaded.

Hi @berquist, thanks for this package!

I just wanted to let you know that vmd 1.9.4a38 is no longer available from the VMD website (at least I couldn't find it). It looks like they updated it on 29/05/2020 to 1.9.4a43.

I managed to tweak this package and have it install for me successfully, but I thought I ought to let you know. The new archive file is called vmd-1.9.4a43.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA102-OptiX650-OSPRay185.opengl.tar.gz

I installed it by editing the archive name in this package and updating the checksum.

Please update this package when you can.

@dviktor Ok, thanks. I did that, no errors in building (see below, "Building process"). I cannot find the executable to run the program, the most similar is this:

[david@david-pc ~/programs/vmd]$ ./pkg/vmd/usr/bin/vmd
/usr/lib/vmd/vmd_LINUX: Command not found.

Building process:

[david@david-pc ~/programs/vmd]$ ls

@David01 unpack snapshot and move vmd-1.9.4a38.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA10-OptiX600-RTX-OSPRay170.opengl.tar.gz to the unpacked directory where PKGBUILD resides. Then run makepkg
