[McIDAS #YXD-786071]: Installation trouble : Can't locate file for: -lcc_dynamic

Please let me know if a configuration gui pops up when you start using
'mcidas -config'.  The default for my McIDAS GUI interface, MCGUI, is to
only run the configuration widget if the user specifically asks for it
to be run using 'mcidas -config'.

> I am including screenshots for the two cases.

OK, thanks for including these.

When you SSH using 'ssh -X', you should not need to allow your machine using
xhost since the display is tunneled through SSH.

I got the same thing when trying to launch my McIDAS configuration
gui while logged into lena as 'mcidas' using 'ssh -Y address@hidden'.
Interestingly, however, I _am_ able to launch an xterm.

It is not something I am familiar with.

I didn't try.

I am doing some research on the problems.  So far, I have learned that
I am unable to launch the version of 'wish' that was installed as part
of the operating system; the error message was the same.  I am able,
however, to launch an xterm with display back to my machine (using
'ssh -Y') and then launch the version of 'wish' built as part of
the McIDAS build:

<logged in as 'mcidas' using 'ssh -Y address@hidden'>
xterm &

-- from the xterm that popped up

cd ~mcidas

This is obviously telling me something important about what has to be
done in order to run programs, I am just not sure what it is yet :-(

I will keep researching...
