Nice to speak to you also.

OK.  I think that the problem is that you are attempting to run a MCGUI
session without enough frames.  Here is what you should do:

<as 'mcidas'>
mcidas -config

This should bring up a gui that allows you to configure some parameters
for your McIDAS session.  Set the number of Image/Graphic frames to
at least 17.  At the same time, try setting the frame sizes to something
larger than their 480x640 default.  Depending on the resolution of your
display (I run at 1024x1280), you can up the size to something like
600 lines and 800 elements (configured by dragging the slider for each).
Make sure that you click on the Yes radiobutton for 'Save configuration
values to defaults file [YES/NO]' before clicking on the button labeled
'START'.  This will save the settings to the file ~/.mcidasrc so they
can be used automatically the next time you start McIDAS using 'mcidas'
(I see that there is no .mcidasrc file in ~mcidas at present so I know
that your session does not have enough frames).  The defaults you set
can be easily changed by starting McIDAS using 'mcidas -config' anytime
you feel like changing things.

Please let me know the results of the above on your system.

Cheers,

Tom
