#67 running brl


I have brl on my computer and saw through the forum that I have to run it though x11. I tried typing in /usr/brlcad/bin/mged in my x11 menu
, but that didn't work. With the command promt on x11 already saying bash3.2$ will that be an issue to running x11?

thanks for your help

    The problem is the path. Your installation probably isn't in /usr/brlcad/bin so /usr/brlcad/bin/mged isn't where mged resides. More than likely, it's in /usr/brlcad/rel-7.12.2/bin/mged or a similar location depending on the version that you downloaded. Replace 7.12.2 with the version you downloaded and try that.

    This is not a bug. You have to figure out how and/or where it was installed. Moving request to support requests.
