Subject: Re: [gembud] GEMPAK6.4.0 _gf programs XQueryColors error
I'm getting a very similar error with most of our gempak scripts. Gempak 6.4.0
running on CentOS 6.2 (x86-64). The script is running on an Xvfb display.
Below is the error message I get when running gdplot2, gpmap, etc:
X Error of failed request: BadName (named color or font does not exist)
Major opcode of failed request: 45 (X_OpenFont)
Serial number of failed request: 72
Current serial number in output stream: 1578
I've done a ton of searching and haven't found any resolution yet.

Attached is the GEMPAK shell script we use to run gdcntr_gf as well as our
grayscale color table.
I am also sending along the results of `xdpyinfo` and `freeColors`.
All of this is being sent as a tar.gz file.
Here is an example of how you would run the shell script..
Syntax: nturb_graygif [dir] [garea] [proj] [device] [gemfile] F[time] [level]
/usr/local/tcl/plotplans/uv/nturb_graygif /tmp 39.5935\;0.5402\;51.8207\;23.110
/product/grendel/chartdata/drvd.gem F6 850
I saw X_QueryColors error mentioned in a 2005 support message, but it had no
GEMPAK6.4.0 is running on RHEL5.7 i386
Help would be very appreciated
