Installation Instructions:Unpack the StageTools tar file to create the StageTools directory. One possible command for doing this is:where
tar vfxpz StageTools-xxxx.tgz
xxxxis replaced by the date that is part of the name of the StageTools file you downloaded.
One reasonable place to unpack StageTools is in
/usr/local/StageTools). This will put it along side
/usr/local/Geomview. Althernatively, you might put it in
/usr/local/Geomview/modules/tclif you have that directory.
Once the StageTools directory has been unpacked,
cdto the StageTools directory and issue the command:(make sure that the TCL/TK "wish" interpreter is in your command path, and that it uses version 8.0 or later of TCL/TK; you may need to use a command like 'wish8.4 fix' instead, or type the complete path to the 8.x wish executable). This command will look up the location of
wishand fix the executables that are part of the StageTools distribution so that they can find it. If you do not do this command, the StageTools external modules may complain "command not found". Once this is done, you can install the StageTools external modules.
To install the StageTools modules publically, issue the command:but use the path to your Geomview installation if it is in a location other than
/usr/local/Geomview. This will install a
.geomview-StageToolsinitialization file in the
/usr/local/Geomview/bindirectory that will make the StageTools modules appear in the Geomview modules list.
To install the StageTools modules only for yourself, issue the command:This will append commands to your
.geomviewinitialization file in your home directory.
Once you have installed StageTools, the modules should appear in the Geomview modules selector the next time you start Geomview.
