#1640 closed defect (fixed)

MB-System library should be added in gmt.conf

Reported by: kthujvu Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords:


Earlier today I helped someone getting mbm_plot to work. One of the missing steps was that his OSGeo Live USB installation lacked the mb library in GMT's config.

Trying to run mbm_plot we ended up with an error about mbcontour not being found. Searching the web I ended up on

"In order for GMT to successfully execute the MB-System modules, the location of the shared library containing these modules must be known to GMT."

To achieve this, we edited GMT_CUSTOM_LIBS in gmt.conf to read:

GMT_CUSTOM_LIBS = /usr/lib/

Afterwards mbcontour worked fine.
