Below is a copy of instructions Prof. Geoff Nunes wrote for accessing our UNIX L-Edit from a PC using X-Win32(
to his document):
Using the Unix version of L-Edit.
The following are instructions for using the Unix version of L-Edit.
They are not actually instructions on L-Edit itself. For that, borrow
a manual from Nunes.
Initial Set Up (one time only stuff)
Sit at one of our PC's with X-Win32 installed. The latest version
telnet to the Northstar machine germain
edit (emacs is good) your .cshrc.local file (or create one) to have the
following two lines:
alias egeus 'exec xterm -geom 80x24+0+0 -ls -display egeus:0'
NOTE: you can add additional lines for other machines you might be
alias ledit '/usr/tanner/bin.hp700/ledit &'
Copy the file ledit.tdb from my account to yours. If you plan to
do all your mask work in a directory called mymasks, the command (assuming
mymasks exists) is
cp ~gnunes/public/ledit.tdb ~/mymasks
Click on the Colors menu and verify that "PseudoColor support in TrueColor
mode" is selected.
Use your favorite telnet application to login to germain. cd to your
chosen working directory.
Type egeus (or whatever). In a few moments, an xterm window should
appear on your desktop.
In the xterm window, type ledit. An L-Edit window should appear.
You might want to read the X-Win32 help file about 3-button mouse support/emulation,
since you need a 3-button mouse to use this version of L-Edit.
If an L-Edit window fails to appear, and after a minute or so you get a
>LicenseServ: Cannot talk to the LicenseServ server on host >>localhost<<
Server not running??
then send a polite e-mail to Mike Fromberger asking him
to re-start it.
If you get a message that looks like
germain >Can't get 16 colors in 4 planes, using B/W
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 62 (X_CopyArea)
Serial number of failed request: 529
Current serial number in output stream: 556
then you don't have "PseudoColor support in TrueColor mode" selected.
See the instructions above.
