The files that needed modifications are: mcstart.gui, mcgui.k, and upcguiprocs.tcl. I rolled the new versions of these routines into the compressed tar file dispvismode.tar.Z which can be found in the pub/mcidas/src directory of anonymous FTP on our FTP server, ftp.unidata.ucar.edu. Here is how to install the new routines: <login as 'mcidas'> cd mcidas2002/update ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu <user> anonymous <pass> your full email address cd pub/mcidas/src binary get dispvismode.tar.Z quit zcat dispvismode.tar.Z | tar xvf - cd ../src rm mcidas ln mcstart.gui mcidas rm ~/bin/mcidas ln mcidas ~/bin Just to make sure, verify that the copy of mcgui.k, upcguiprocs.tcl, and mcstart.gui are the same in ~mcidas/bin and ~mcidas/mcidas2002/src: cd ~mcidas/mcidsa2002/src ls -alt mcgui.k ~/bin/mcgui.k ls -alt upcguiprocs.tcl ~/bin/upcguiprocs.tcl ls -alt mcstart.gui ~/bin/mcstart.gui If the files are different, the copies in ~/bin must be removed and a link (hard if ~/bin and ~/mcidas2002/src are on the same file system; a soft link otherwise) made from the copy in ~/mcidas2002/src and ~mcidas/bin. Please let me know the results of using the new copies of these files. Thanks. Tom >From address@hidden Mon Sep 23 15:17:22 2002 >Subject: Re: 20020920: ** McIDAS - -displayVisualMode (cont.) Tom: The fix that you had me download and install seems to have done the trick. At least I have not been able to duplicate the problems that I was having earlier. I guess the real test will come later in the week when the McIDAS users test it out. Thanks for the quick response with the fix. I certainly appreciate it. -jim
