Setting up x11 with Radiance

I’m setting up Radiance on a new mac machine and ran into an issue when I call objview (see error lines below). I installed x11 and set the display variable (per Giulio Antonutto & Andrew McNeil tutorial). Any pointers would be appreciated!

rvu: x11: not found
rvu: fatal - cannot start device “x11”
rad: error running rvu


Hi Belal,

Are you using the NREL Radiance installer? Unfortunately there is a bug in that version’s build of rvu that will cause that error. If you can build (compile) Radiance yourself (which I’m pretty sure Andy’s tutorials show you how to do on Mac), I recommend that approach for now.

Thanks Rob, I’ll search and hopefully find a tutorial that shows me how to do that!
