I'am having trouble running vmd on HPUX11, the binary version.
every time i start the program it writes in the vmd console

ERROR) Could not read the vmd initialization file -
ERROR) $env(VMDIR)/scripts/vmd/vmdinit.tcl
ERROR) Unknown color name "darkgray"
ERROR) The VMDDIR environment variable is defined in the vmd startup
script and
ERROR) should point to the top of the VMD hierarchy. VMD will continue
with limited functionality.

in the vmd console the VMDDIR variable is set to /usr/local/lib/vmd

does anyone know how to fix this?
