[McIDAS #MWQ-801749]: McIDAS-X 2009 and Solaris 11 Express

Hi Robert,

Correct.  I had no problems (aside from slowness).

> Actually X is now locked up as that user.

X locking-up sure seems to indicate some other kind of problem.  I
will have to touch base with our system admin to see what he has to

It is starting to look like that.

No worries.  I logged off so you can reboot.

Please try the following:

- login to the console as the user 'mcidas' (i.e., avoid the 'xhost +' and
  'su' steps)

- try running McIDAS directly from the console

- another test is to logon to a different machine and then SSH to sweden
  (ssh -XY address@hidden) and run McIDAS to see what happens

  This would kinda mimic what I just did.  'kinda' would be 'exactly' if
  you SSHed in from a Linux machine.
