I had vmd working on my lubuntu 64 bit but all of a sudden I was getting errors when I tried to run it. I tried reinstalling it but no joy.

The error I now get when I try to run

rlwrap: No match.

I don't use make unless I have to so I don't know all that much about it.

I have removing vmd completely to see if that helped. I tried the suggestions it made (I am sorry, I can't remember the details but it was moaning about CUDA and my graphic drivers for a while.

I had not updated it or anything. It was fine until I went away from the computer and came back to it like that.

If nobody can help I will try reinstalling my system and see if that helps.

once you uninstall rlwrap where do you type make install? – Chris Pap Nov 5 '14 at 19:30
