Very good.

Yes, but I am suspicious that they are not running correctly.

OK.  The 'TL' listing for McIDAS strings shows needed McIDAS enviornment 
variables, XCDDATA
and MCDATA, are _not_ defined.  This is likely the entire cause of your 
problems, but the
fix is more than just defining them.

Try the following:

1) stop the LDM (as user 'ldm')

2) as 'mcidas':

   cd $MCDATA
   te.k XCDDATA \"/home/ldm/data/mcidas
   te.k MCDATA \"/home/mcidas/workdata

   cp ../data/SCHEMA /home/ldm/data/mcidas
   cp ../data/SYSKEY.TAB /home/ldm/data/mcidas
   cp ROUTE.SYS /home/ldm/data/mcidas

   redirect.k ADD SCHEMA \"/home/ldm/data/mcidas

   batch.k XCD.BAT

3) restart the LDM (as user 'ldm')

I believe that you did not run the McIDAS configuration script 'mcxconfig', or 
if you did run 'mcxconfig' the environment was not setup correctly before its

I will hold off on trying to login to see if the above gets you going.
