2. Getting Started

To start up SatView, make sure that the executable program satview is in your path, an X server is running on your workstation, and that your DISPLAY environmental variable is set to the screen you are using. Type satview. A corner cursor will probably appear, prompting you to place SatView's main window. Move the cursor with the mouse, and click the left mouse button to place the window. The control area of the main window contains five buttons, each of which may be selected with the left mouse button.
