[McIDAS #MPH-556293]: Error building mcidas2009 distribution



Hi Angel,

I apologize for not being able to get to your email before now...

OK.

Very good.

re:

Hmm... this certainly seems that there is something wrong.

re:
> Channel 3 completelly white with black small spots.
> 
> The rest of near and thermal infrared are displayed correctly.

OK.

re:
> I copy some visible Meteosat10, HRIT files to another dataset (IMGCOPY) and
> it happens the same when I display the images from the new dataset.

OK.  This sounds like the original images are bad/blank.

re:
> I have downloaded Meteosat10 files in the mcidas format from EUMETSAT (but

If it is observed on two different OSes, it would seem likely that the
problem is either with the image(s) themselves, or a strange bug in
McIDAS.

re:
> I recover your last email where you talk about a list of X fonts that I
> should install. I am not sure but maybe the problem is caused by this fact.

No, the fonts have nothing to do with the display of data.  The fonts
are needed for the 'mctext' and/or GUI/MCGUI interfaces.

re:
> Should I begin with the installation of these X fonts?

Yes, but this will not solve your image display problem.

re:
> Again I can give access to our machine if you find it important.

This would be most useful.  The other option is that you make
available the data files you are working with.

Cheers,

Tom
