Subject: EDM start window position, from command line

Hello,

 

Further to the discussion in http://www.aps.anl.gov/epics/tech-talk/2011/msg00585.php, I have been trying to open edm windows at specified locations from the command line. I can’t get that to work, but before that, can’t seem to get the edm display file server and related operations to work.

 

Firstly,

edm –server

or

edm –server –display $DISPLAY

both open an instance of edm.

 

Subsequently:

edm –x –open file.edl

returns the error “No server found for display - abort”

This error is returned even if the –display option is included before –open

 

The command

edm –x file.edl

will open another instance of edm, and file.edl as expected. (adding ?X?Y values here doesn’t work)

 

Without the –open option working, the –open file.edl?X?Y isn’t going to work...

 

I’ve tried edm versions 1.10.1w, 1.12.39 and 1.12.56.

 

Many thanks,

Kathryn Spiers
