When I open Kalzium on Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop, the wrong molecular editor window
comes up. It appears to be the older version of Avogadro. Maybe the pointer
is selecting the wrong version or the wrong Avogadro is embedded somehow.
Avogadro on my Ubuntu 14.04 lists: Application Version 1.1.1, Library Version
1.1.1, Open Babel Version 2.3.2 and Qt Version 4.8.6. What appears to be
happening is the Avogadro version that shows up from Kalzium is what it looked
like back in the Ubuntu 10.04 version. I think that this problem may also
have come up with the Ubuntu 12.04 version as well.

but the molecular editor came up and only displayed a blank black screen. I

to be the molecular editor in stand-alone mode worked fine. It also seemed an

Kalzium appeared to fetch the older avogadro screen or its library version! It
never called the newer screen as far as I could tell. Do you suppose that this
could be the issue? I'm not capable enough as a programmer to decipher this on
my own. I only write simple scripts in Bash and Python. Unfortunately, I don't
have a version of Kalzium that ran on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS anymore.
For my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, my Kalzium version is 2.4.01 using the KDE

The molecule editor was ported to Avogadro 2 for the upcoming Kalzium release
in December (KDE Applications 16.12). With that version I cannot reproduce the
