Brief note on MGLTools

MGLTools provides a GUI and python scripts for use with AutoDock. Installation on Ubuntu 7.04 is easy enough with the binary installer. However, none of the GUIs want to run:

TclError: Togl: couldn't get visual
hit enter to continue

We at least get to a window by appending “DISPLAY=:0” to the front of the command.

Seems to be an Xgl issue. Why am I running Xgl? Take a guess. Oh, how I hate the ATI fglrx driver for Linux.
