Since it works from one account and not from another, I'm inclined to think that the problem has to do with some subtle difference betweent the accounts. Everything is supposed to hinge on the setting of the GEOMROOT variable near the top of the "geomview" shell script. The "install" script edits this file to set GEOMROOT for you, based on your answer to the first question it asks. It should be the ABSOLUTE pathname of the directory where Geomview resides. In particular, in order for Geomview to be able to find its modules, the "modules" subdirectory must be in the GEOMROOT directory. Could it be that you specified the GEOMROOT path in terms of something relative, such as ".", "~", or an environment variable that is different for different accounts on your system? If you're sure that the GEOMROOT setting is correct and things still don't work, send me a copy of your "geomview" script and the "install.log" file that was created when you ran the "install" script, and I'll see if I can get a better idea of the problem. --Mark
