Re: [ferret_users] Installing ferret on MAC OS 10.12.1

Hi Aditi,

Do you have X11 software running, such as XQuartz?  We have not tested Ferret on Mac OS X Sierra, but I believe others have successfully installed it.

Note that for PyFerret, displayed plots on Mac OS X Sierra do not work.  Undisplayed plots (using the command-line option "-nodisplay") work fine.  This appears to be an issue with the python library Qt4 or the version of the QT library that is used for graphics, under the new OS; we have plans to work on this.

Hello ferret users!

I am trying to install ferret on Mac Sierra, OS 10.12.1. I have followed every step given in the download and I am able to launch ferret from the terminal. 

Unfortunately, when i try to plot anything, it gets stuck and does not display the figure. But, it does not show any error either

Could some one help me out. Thanks in advance
