    Ok so i am "trying" to use Rasmol with X11 on the latest version of Tiger on my last revision 12" powerbook.

    When i double click the rasmol program, a X11 window pops up for a split second then disappears. Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

    Having to use this program because Chem3D is a windows only program :/

    I am relatively new to X11 and such programs and need to have this done by next monday :/ (need to show two .pdb images and import them to Keynote)

    However if anyone knows of a better(another) .pbd program that would be great


    Thanks much

    I've found that fink is the best way to get Rasmol. However, if you're looking for molecular visualization, may I suggest Pymol? It's much more feature-rich, and in my opinion, easier to use.
