Re: Unable to run Motif


It looks like you have no driver for yours graphic card.

What you get if you type: $ show device ws.

Which graphics card is in yours system?

Try to install Open3D. I remember that drivers for some graphical cards comes with Open3D.

Hi gvalore,
graphical card is optional on AS400; on my system it's absent.
