[ferret_users] problem with X-Windows



Sorry, I know, this is not a ferret topic, but maybe somebody came across this.


Ferret cannot open a window for the plot. It dies with an X Error (please see below).


A “ferret –batch picture.gif” produces an empty gif file.


A “ferret –batch” produces a metafile that I can convert to postscript, which I can look at in gv and can convert to jpeg with gs.  


Anybody seen anything like that before?


Thank you!
