It's hard to say why this is happening. When you run Ferret and make an image in an x-window, the FRAME command gets the image from the screen. That seems to imply there's some issue with the x-windows settings. We have not really had other reports of this happening. What version of Ferret are you running? And what is the x-windows software? The Ferret installation guide has some discussion about x-windows setup, along with links to FAQ's on the topic, which may give you some ideas.
Meanwhile there is another option. When you run Ferret using the -script option,
$ ferret -script test.jnlthen you could add the -gif option as well:
$ferret -gif -script test.jnlThis will run Ferret without an x-window, and the graphics will be directly written to your gif file.
