Description

I have a ~1.1-GB dataset on a cluster on which I work. I have morpho-1.10.0-linux on my debian laptop, which works fine, but I don't want to copy the data locally and then upload it to KNB. So I tried to install morpho on the cluster (in my home space) by running

$ URI=http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/software/dist/morpho-1.10.0-linux.jar
$ FN="$(basename ${URI%%\?*})" ; DIR="$HOME/bin" ; FN=$(echo ${FN} | sed e 's/ /_/g') ; FN=$(echo ${FN} | sed -e 's/%20/_/g') ; mkdir -p ${DIR} ; FP="${DIR}/${FN}" ; curl -C - -o "${FP}" "${URI}"

:--:-- 2455k
$ java -jar ${FN}

in a (bash) shell on the cluster, accessed via ssh from, and X forwarded to, my linux laptop. Upon doing so I get an illegible dialog: see the attached screenshot.

#1 Updated by Tom Roche about 7 years ago

Note that I also tried scp-ing my local linux morpho-1.10.0 to the cluster. When I run that (again, remotely, and X-forwarding), I get a similarly illegible initial screen, with the same oddly-cursive and very distorted font.

Note the cluster (which should be updating to RHEL 6, RSN :-) is running
