I'm running GRASS 6.4.6 on Ubuntu 16.04. I can't seem to get the monitor to work.

d.mon -L

I thought I could go 'd.mon start=X0', but it returns:

ERROR: no such monitor 'X0'
ERROR: No such monitor as <X0>
Problem selecting X0. Will try once more
ERROR: No such monitor as <X0>

X11 is installed and working, but how do I get monitors to appear in the list above?

  • That X11 is installed is not necessarily enough - if you compile yourself you also need to tell "configure" to actually use it. See grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Compile_and_Install_Ubuntu

  • That said, I'd strongly recommend to switch to GRASS GIS 7 since version 6 is several years behind in development (basically in maintenance mode).

  • In the the configure file, it looks like ac_x_libraries and enable_w11 enable X11. I'll recompile and give it a go.

  • The ortho tool is almost complete in GRASS GIS 7.4 (to be released).

Have you tried:

d.mon start=wx0

  • Is wxpython installed (and used to compile GRASS)?

  • Note: In GRASS GIS 6 there is no wx monitor.
