Hi. Another small problem, this time with 'cirdna'.
I am running EMBOSS 2.4.1 on a Mac PowerBook G4, under Darwin and
XDarwin 1.1 (XFree86 4.2.0).
After installing EMBOSS, I noticed that he directory /EMBOSS/lib did not
exist. This was odd, as the post-compilation setup instructions in the
EMBOSS Administrators Guide (1.13.2) required the following line to be
added to .cshrc:
setenv PLPLOT_LIB /blah/blah/EMBOSS/lib
With this setting, cirdna gave the following error:
Cannot open library file: plstnd5.fnt
Please set PLPLOT_LIB to the plplot/lib directory under emboss
*** PLPLOT ERROR ***
Unable to open font file
Setting PLPLOT_LIB to '/blah/blah/EMBOSS' did work, as the files
plstnd5.fnt and plxtnd5.fnt were in this directory. However, the program
'hangs' after producing the 'cirdna' window with the graphic. I have to
'kill' the 'cirdna' window by alt-clicking it for the cirdna program to
Could someone explain this behavior (or is this normal), and what files
are supposed to be in the /EMBOSS/lib directory.
Sorry to be a nuisance.
