I got Grass53 to run using the following :
6.2.2 XFree86 multiwindow mode
In cygwin, launch the XFree86 server at Cygwin Bash prompt with:
XWin -multiwindow -clipboard &
Now the X Server is listening and will open X related windows in individual
windows. Then start GRASS as usual:
nviz elevation.dem vect=roads & ---> not working because I do not have this
This runs GRASS similar to a common MS-Windows application
I am using the "global" dataset for a tutorial and can not view the "eco"
raster dataset using the nviz command:
Running command: (I think)
results in the following error:
"The Dynamic link library cygXft-2.dll could not be found in hte specified
I am guessing there is something wrong with my cygwin installation.
