I tried, but still no go. It is getting to look like I will have to rewrite the McIDAS ADDE sounding server, vpserv. I really didn't want to do this, but it will probably easier in the long run than getting the Linux community to change whatever it is that they changed that broke things.

Thanks so much again for your help Tom!!! No worries. Now, one last comment. When I got on weather2 this evening, I noticed that you had logged on as 'mcidas' and were running a McIDAS session that was using the Fkey menu. I am moving away from support of the Fkey menu in favor of my GUI for McIDAS, MCGUI. Please try the following: o EXIT out of the existing McIDAS session o start a new McIDAS session as follows: mcidas config o if you like, change the size of the frames (your present session is running with 17 frames of 480x640 size). Depending on your monitor size, I would recommend something more like 600x800 or even larger o down towards the bottom, click the MCGUI radiobutton to specify that you want the MCGUI (and not the Fkey) to come up automatically on McIDAS start o in the very last set of radiobuttons at the bottom: Save configuration values to defaults file [YES|NO} specify that you want these configuration options saved (YES). This rewrites ~/.mcidasrc. o click the START button and a McIDAS session with the MCGUI will start Now, each time you start McIDAS with a simple: mcidas a session with these settings will be started. Want to change them? Just rerun 'mcidas config'. Always make sure to specify that you want to save the configuration values to the defaults file if you want to change your default session. That's it... Tom
