Thanks Bob,

That did the trick.

I then ran 'nviz -q'

and got the error:

Tk_Init failed
Application initialization failed: Can't find a usable tk.tcl in the 
following directories:
     /System/Library/Tcl/tk8.3 /usr/local/grass5/etc/lib/tk8.3 
/usr/local/grass5/lib/tk8.3 /usr/local/grass5/etc/library 
/usr/local/grass5/library /usr/local/grass5/tk8.3/library 

This probably means that tk wasn't installed properly.

Error in startup script: can't read "src_boot": no such variable

So I made a symbolic link from  /usr/local/lib/tk8.3 to 

And NVIZ works again! Hooray! : )

Andy -  perhaps all you need to do is create the symbolic link as:

   mkdir /usr/local/grass5/etc/lib
   ln -s /usr/local/lib/tk8.3 /usr/local/grass5/etc/lib/tk8.3

Please let us know.

Thanks again,
