Gilbert,

re:

If you were setup to start the MCGUI automatically, then it is trying
to bring up the Tcl/Tk interface.  To thest this, type:

mcidas config

If the GUI startup widget starts, then select the NONE radiobutton for
the way to start (e.g., MCTUI, Fkey, or NONE) and then click on start.
This should bring up the McIDAS session without the MCGUI.  If this
works, then the problem is lack of colors as I theorized before.

It doesn't, either. Hmmm!
