Dear all, dear Nigel,

I cannot get the Amber and AFITT menu bars in the phenix.refine GUI on 
a  Ubuntu (Xubuntu 18.04) box.

  I set Preferences "Enable alpha-test programs and features" (works on 
my Mac 10.14.6 and SciLinux6 box ).

Moreover, on the Xubuntu machine: when I start the phenix.refine GUI 
(phenix version 1.18.2-3874) I see the following error message in the 
terminal running phenix:

//$ phenix//

/Could not import the compiled Python-sander interface. Make sure you 
have the Python development libraries installed and that you have 
sourced amber.sh or amber.csh


python 3.7 is installed and python development tools :/


/$ python -V //
//Python 3.7.6 /

/$ sudo apt list -a   python3.7-dev //
//Listing... Done //
//python3.7-dev/bionic-updates,now 3.7.5-2~18.04 amd64 [installed] //
//python3.7-dev/bionic-security 3.7.3-2~18.04.1 amd64 //
//python3.7-dev/bionic 3.7.0~b3-1 amd64


Any idea what is going wrong?

Thanks a lot and best regards,
