Problem: Although I can run Netscape on my SUN when I try to open the Tecplot Help I get the error message _netscape_bin: not running on display ….
Solution: Tecplot tries to open Netscape with the -remote flag in case a session of Netscape is already open. When Netscape is not running SUN returns this error message instead of returning an error code. Two workarounds:1. Start Netscape before starting Tecplot Help.2. Edit $TEC100HOME/bin/LaunchBrowser. Follow the instructions in the script. 3. Tecplot 10 Release 2 or earlier – Create your own script (named something like LaunchTecplotHelp) to launch the browser. You must handle the same problem that Tecplot is trying to handle. i.e. use netscape -remote OpenURL($1) option if Netscape is currently running or netscape $1 if it is not. Where $1 is the first argument passed to the LaunchTecplotHelp script. Then you must add the following macro command to your .tecplot.cfg file.$!Interface UnixHelpBrowserCmd=/path/to/my/script/LaunchTecplotHelp @
