MB-System library should be added in gmt.conf
|Reported by:||kthujvu||Owned by:|
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 https://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/res/pi/MB-System/html/mbsystem_how_to_get.html
"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/libmbgmt.so
Afterwards mbcontour worked fine.
