Hi grass list
I have just compiled grass 6 on solaris, and I only have the SUN GX 256
color graphics card.
In Grass5 I could run d.colormode and set it to float to display images.
The grass 6 documentation refers to d.colormode, but it is absent, and
the grass5 version of d.colormode is unhappy with grass6 !!
> GRASS 6.0.0 > d.colormode <<< d.colormode stolen from grass 5.0
> ERROR: program 'd.colormode' cannot be executed because: Neither a command
> line (cmd) or interactive (inter) version was found
Although xcolor changes the display to floating, the graphics monitor
window is unaffected.
Is there a grass6 method to access float mode for 256 color displays please?
(Is there support for a rastergraphics true-color display card ??)
ALSO: I had some trouble getting grass6 to work in gui mode, which was
because I did not have opengl libraries. Although the requirements does
not specify that these are needed for gui mode (only for nviz), the tcl
init code looks for information in the nviz directory, so unless you
have opengl and compile with nviz enabled, the GUI interface does not
work. Perhaps this dependancy could be added to the requirements
information to help those of us who do not have an opengl and don't
think we need one!
