Dear Grads users,

 I am using the instruction for installing opengrads-2.2.1.oga.1 in linux:

When I run grads, I see the following message:

Welcome to the OpenGrADS Bundle Distribution


For additional information enter "grads --manual".

Starting "/usr/local/bin/opengrads/Contents/Linux/Versions/2.2.1.oga.1/x86_64/grads  " ...

How can I fix this problem?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Kind Regards!
