[Ifeffit] Artemis error message

Having now looked at your message, I must admit I am a little  
confused.  If you allow me to paraphrase, I believe you say that if  
you run artemis from an X11 window using the command line, feff runs  
normally.  On the other hand, if you run artemis using the double  
click application (the applet) to run artemis, feff doesn't work.   
This is very hard to understand as the only thing that is different  
(as you might have been able to see in my last post) is the  
environment variable, PGPLOT_DEV set in the runprog script is  
different (e.g. set to use aquaterm output).  There is nothing that  
could ostensibly effect whether or not feff launches (it certainly  
doesn't use graphics).
