Geomview For Windows?
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
I suspect that geomview can't find the data file because the path name for the data directory is set incorrectly. This is supposed to be set for your system during the compile, but if the compile did not go smoothly perhaps this failed. The data files should be in GEOMROOT/data/geom, where GEOMROOT is the top of the geomview source tree. When geomview starts up, does a control panel come up in addition to the camera window? You can use the "Load" button to load files while the viewer is running. Depending on the version of geomview you have, after you hit that button either a big browser will appear in the lower left corner of the screen, or a small panel with a button labelled "File Browser" will appear. Hit that button to get the big browser. Try typing the geometry data file directory name (GEOMROOT/data/geom) into the blue input space on the bottom of the browser. Scroll down to "dodec.off" in the list of files that will then appear and click on it. Now does it appear in the camera window? If this works, then geomview itself is working fine and just needs to be told the correct datafile directory. Try setting the environment variable GEOMDATA to GEOMDATA/data (i.e. "setenv GEOMDATA <pathname>") before you run geomview. Then you should be able to just refer to data files by filenames instead of full path names. If the above advice solves the problem, then you may also need to change pathnames in one other place: the system-wide .geomview file, which is in the GEOMROOT/data directory. Make sure the pathnames for the external programs are set correctly. Let us know whether this works. Tamara Munzner ((555) 555-5555 munzner at geom.umn.edu The Geometry Center
