I am wanting to use the translate atoms tool, but the “translate” button is grayed out with text next to it saying “No GLWidget?”. Is this something I need to download separately in order to use this tool? Thanks!
Can you be a bit more specific about:
- Operating System
- version of Avogadro
- how you installed it
This is a really bizarre error - if this comes up, it generally means something is very wrong.
No, it’s not something to download - it’s indicating that it can’t properly run OpenGL… but usually that problem would trigger much earlier in launching the program.
Yes, sorry for not including those:
- Avogadro version 1.2.0
- Windows 10.0.19042 Education
It’s been quite a while since I installed it, but I probably just downloaded it from the website/sourceforge and used the Windows installer. Other functions seem to be working.
I’m afraid there’s nothing we can do to fix bugs with 1.2 - it uses libraries that aren’t supported anymore.
I’d suggest trying out a nightly build of Avogadro2 https://two.avogadro.cc/ and submitting feedback / feature requests.
