Description

In beta1, we note that for R graphics to work on the Mac, one needs to have X11 running prior to starting Kepler and set the DISPLAY env variable to 0.0. However, it turns out that DISPLAY was set for the BASH shell only so that it is not available for applications launched by double clicking!. The correct way to set it for applications is described at http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/qa1067.html.

We need to fix the installer to set DISPLAY for applications in the next release.

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins about 13 years ago

This problem has been fixed by adding the capability to set the graphics display to PDF and using builtin Mac PDF display functionality. RExpression actor is also set to detect a Mac OS and create a PDF graphic. ImageJ actor changed to use PDF display for image files with '.pdf' extender (Note, on Windows, Acrobat reader should be installed)
