Dear Mr. DiBiase,
Usually, when you get an error message from idt about the translator,
this means that idt is having trouble running "ictrans", which it uses
to actually display the pictures.
To fix this, you need to make sure that your NCARG_ROOT environment
variable is set correctly. It should be set to the parent directory of
where NCAR Graphics was installed on your system. For example, if NCAR
Graphics was installed to /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/lib, etc, then
set NCARG_ROOT to /usr/local:
setenv NCARG_ROOT /usr/local
Secondly, you need to make sure that $NCARG_ROOT/bin is on your search
path so that it can find ictrans. Type:
at the UNIX prompt to find out if the path to ictrans is on your
search path. "ictrans" should be in the same location as "idt", so if
your system is finding "idt" okay, it should also be finding "ictrans"
If all of this seems to be in order and you're still having problems,
then please send me a note.
