Re: [gembud] [GEMPAK #YUD-318283]: help

Jeff, Gerry, Michael et al,

I provided a PNG device driver with the GEMPAK distribution, being built 

This is using the "gf" driver imaging, so "png" does require the X display 
as does the gf driver.

In the interim since, made the gd library available (which is 
the key component of the "gif" driver
that runs without an X display) with necessary updates to support png (and 
jpg) so I can send you the steps needed to make a png driver
that is X independent. Download the GD library from

so true..
I was using the images from the GOES server, which is in TIFF,
the using ImageMagick to combine the overlay's and convert to jpg and png

be nice if GEMPAK had png or jpg support ..... hint hint....


IIRC, a little script-foo with ImageMagick's convert should do the trick
'til the TIFF driver is back in action.
