Re: [ferret_users] Announcing Ferret v6.3 for the Mac

This problem is easily solved (should have been done in the install script?).

The environment variable PLOTFONTS needs to point to where the NEW fonts directory is (should have been on the tarfile).

On my system (tcsh), the command is:

setenv PLOTFONTS /full/path/to/NEW/fonts

(The old fonts were in /usr/local/ferret/ppl/fonts)

And note that if you switch back to the old Ferret, you have to reset this environment variable.

Dear all

Thanks to Ansley and those who worked on this to provide us with the executables for MAC. I installed them on my intel mac OSX 10.6 and everything works fine when I launch ferret. I can load datasets, list the data included, even the GUI works fine.

However when I try to plot some data (with plot, shade, or fill command for example, in command line or GUI) that I get the error below (seems to be related to some file containing a font, the file exists on my system).

Has anybody had a similar problem, and if yes how did you solve it?

Thanks in advance

Hi All, At long last we have up-to-date executables for you! Because of the contributions of Ferret colleagues, we are able to release version 6.3 for the intel-based Macs; Leopard and Snow Leopard. (OSX-10.5 and OSX-10.6).

We have also have a Ferret version 6.4 executable for the PowerMac - OSX-4.

The powermac version does not include external functions (simply for lack of time to work on building them). This should not be a major drawback most functions developed as external functions are now linked into the Ferret executable.

Please try installing the appropriate Ferret executable by following the installation instructions in the pages below and running the Finstall script.

Ferret for powermac, Tiger:
