hello

Well I haven't gotten all of the starting problems fixed yet. I have moved onto other things in the mean time and will get back to this when I have more pieces finished.

One thing that puzzles me is that I cannot start halscope from the Gmoccapy maintenance menu. The button for starting halscope is there but when I select it nothing seems to happen. The rest of the buttons appear to work. Is there a special procedure for starting halscope from within Gmoccapy?

Thank you for checking. This might be a clue, it is the first time I have checked the terminal for this error.
/usr/bin/gladevcp:295: GtkWarning: gtk_widget_size_allocate(): attempt to allocate widget with width -5 and height 17
  gtk.main()
Settings say: do not use keyboard shortcuts, abort
rtapi_shmem_new failed due to shmget(key=0x130cf406): Permission denied
SCOPE: ERROR: failed to get shared memory (key=0x130cf406, size=272)

The first bit is the usual error I can't trace down but the last one is new to me.

TIA

How have you installed?
There seems to be a permission problem.

Please run gmoccapy and then from a second terminal launch halscope, does that work?
I am sure this is not caused by gmoccapy.

gmoccapy launches the following command if you push the button:
halscope  > /dev/null &

Thank you. Starting halscope from a separate terminal produces the same error message. It is obvious that the problem is with my installation and not with Gmoccapy. Now it is time for some research because I have no idea what the error message means.
