I have just joined the list and thought I should introduce myself. I teach chemistry at a small private college in Michigan and I would like to help with Avogadro. I don’t have much programming background, but I thought I would be able to help with the documentation. I am particularly interested in the Education examples on the wiki.
I have both Windows and Linux installed on my laptop, so I thought I would try Avogadro on both. I’m running:
Windows XP using Avogadro 0.9.7
Ubuntu (Jaunty) 9.04 using Avogadro 0.9.6.
I’m new to Ubuntu and a little unsure about compiling from source, so I am using the most recent version of Avogadro I could access from the Debichem repository as described on the Distribution Packages page of the wiki.
In playing around with Avogadro I noticed a number of discrepancies between the Linux version and the Windows version. Some of the Linux problems I’m seeing may have been fixed in 0.9.7
