i don't know either. there either has to be some error message
somewhere or you should at the very least see in the VMD Main window
information about the trajectory file and how many frames were loaded.
i don't know the details of all the steps you perform and whether all
library and software versions are comparable to your linux version.
perhaps your files were not properly transferred (as text and not
binary files) or got otherwise corrupted?
