Very good.

Hmm... the output above may be self-contradictory; we need to run a test
to find out:

- please make sure that no 'mcenv' instance is running before re-running
  the test above.  The easiest way to do this is to logoff and then
  log back on, and then run 'env' from a 'mcenv'-created shell.

The thing that is contradictory to me is illustrated by the MCPATH and
MCENV_POSUC values above:


If the instance of 'mcenv' created the shell (environment), then MCPATH should 

before running 'mcenv'

MCENV_POSUC -- undefined

after running 'mcenv'


The fact that /home/mcidas/.mctmp/4456458 was not added to the end of MCPATH
indicates that 'mcenv' did not modify MCPATH like it should.  The fact that
MCENV_POSUC is define says that some instance of 'mcenv' did run.

I would understand if you were running in the C Shell, but since you are running
in BASH, I am left scratching my head.  The reason?  When running in the C
Shell, .cshrc gets read when 'mcenv' runs (sourced).  This is the reason
that the method I recommend for setting the McIDAS environment for the user
'mcidas' has one _not_ define environment variables directly.  Rather, I
suggest that one sources a file from the McIDAS distribution to set needed
environment variables.  This process is described in the Unidata McIDAS

OK, it is just the name of the Ubuntu release.  No problem...

By the way, if we can't resolve things through the back and forth email 
I am happy to logon to your machine and check things out.  To do this, I would
need the login information for the 'mcidas' account sent to my private email
address, address@hidden, in the following way:  one email with the
name of your machine and another email with the password for the 'mcidas'
account.  Each email should _NOT_ reference information in the other email
(i.e., don't include the user name or password in the same email as which
machine they are valid for).
