The latest version is 1.5, available from
or from our ftp site at

The problem running Geomview on one machine and displaying to
another is mainly a problem with GL, the graphics language used
on the SGIs.  It isn't very efficient over the network and the
plain GL event loop doesn't work.  It's best if you run geomview
on the machine you're sitting at.

It sound like you don't have your path set up correctly, or you
forgot to run the install script.  If you did run the script,
check that the directory you told the script to install the
binaries in is in your path.
