startup in Linux

Postby Brad Cantrell on Fri Aug 10, 2012 11:21 pm

Ive successfully installed the Dyalog and keyboard .deb files in Linux Mint 13. But I forgot how to start up the program. Ive tried entering ./dyalog in the folder that contains the dyalog binary in /opt, but that brought up the following errors:
Code: Select all
Dyalog APL/S Version 13.1.12983 Unicode
For i86
Created: May  3 2012 at 00:09:30
Copyright (c) Dyalog Limited 1982-2012
Stream 0: Can't access /usr/dyalog/aplkeys/xterm
Stream 0: /usr/dyalog/aplkeys/xterm line : 1 can't open.


OK, now there is no dyalog folder in the /usr directory, so that is obviously a problem. But I had Dyalog up and running fine in Mint 10 a month ago so I cant figure why this would not install correctly now. Any help on this appreciated.
thanks, Brad

You need to call the mapl script that's in the installation directory. This is documented in the UNIX IUG manual which is/should have been copied into your FTP area (I have no access to check that at the moment). If the manual isn't there, can you drop support a note and we'll get a copy to you.
