Hello Matt,

I did try, no success

>Can you verify that you have /Applications/Ifeffit/bin/feff6?

verified, I do have it.

In the meantime I made an interesting discovery that some of you will 
certainly be able to explain:

If I launch Artemis using the double click on the application icon I 
DO get the error message and feff does not run, regardless of which 
application I choose for the graphics


If I launch the program from the terminal window, I do not get the 
question on whether to choose Xwindow or Aquaterm, the default being 
apparently Xwindow PGPLOT, and everything runs smoothly.

So, what is the origin of the error message that I get when I launch 
the program from the icon?
