I have encountered a rather strange (at least to me) pr0blem with 
autodocktools (adt) and its associated programs.

If I install adt from Xubuntu I get the following messages when I try to 
run the application the splash screen opens and the progress bar goes to 
100% and the app hangs.

The messages are:

If, on the other hand, I download, and install, MGL_Tools from 
Scripps.edu, it installs and runs without any warnings or errors.

As I said, a tad strange.

I woud appreciate comments,

Thanks in advance.
