[IDD #PLF-256397]: Pqact help

Hi Phil,

The script you are running evidently needs to be able to connect to a
running X server.  This is a much different situation than the simple
script you sent in before.

I think the best thing for this effort is to send in a new inquiry to
address@hidden  Steve Chiswell should be able to give
you ideas on how best to address your script(s) that require an X server
(I am not the GEMPAK support person).

> Thanks again for your help Tom,

No worries.  I will close this inquiry in the expectation that you will
open a new inquiry that is related to GEMPAK.
