I understand that tcl/tk (tickle) grass is another
potential Linux based GIS that would provide some
graphical interface help for Grass.
The question is has anyone ever gotten it to
run on a Linux platform?
I downloaded the Tcl/tk extensions for Grass
from Moon plus the linux libraries but was
never able to get it to compile for linux grass.
Can it be done?
The other question I have is more of a Linux question.
I would like to give Linux Grass on a PC access
to a live file system from an ethernet network
using NFS on a Unix machine that is running Sun OS4.1.3.
I am currently successfully linked to the Sun using tcp/ip
and win ftp programs and X windows software for Win95.
Any suggestions from Linux experts to help get Linux
talking to a Sun using Tcp/Ip or NFS would be greatly
appreciated and would provide a good deal more
functionality to Linux Grass for us.
