hiccup with manual ocssw installation

by annethessen » Fri Jan 06, 2017 10:05 am America/New_York

Hello
I am using mac os x El Capitan, Python 2.7 and SeaDAS 7.3.2.
I successfully downloaded the SeaDAS visualization tool and went to download the processing tools (OCSSW) through the GUI. That did not work and I see why from the forum. Then I tried the manual install using install_ocssw.py. That appeared to have run correctly with no errors. Now when I go back to SeaDAS and choose the OCSSW menu option, all the processing tools are still greyed out. This is still after closing SeaDAS and restarting my machine. Am I missing a step?
Thanks

did you install OCSSW in:

<seadas_install_dir>/ocssw

on my machine it looks like this:

dshea@gs616-crab:~$ ls local/seadas-7.3.2/
bin/                            modules/
CHANGELOG.txt                   ocssw/
config/                         OCSSW_LOG_install_ocssw.py.txt
gpl.html                        readme.html
.install4j/                     SeaDAS_Distribution_Policy
lib/                            seadas_license.html
licenses/                       seadas-website.url
LICENSE.txt                     VERSION.txt


Note the ocssw directory.

Have a look at the seadas-7.3.2/config/seadas.config file.  At the bottom you should see something like:

# set location of OCSSWROOT
seadas.ocssw.root = ${seadas_home}/ocssw
seadas.ocssw.location = local


The default install location for install_ocssw.py is $HOME/ocssw, so unless you told it to use a different location, you will need to edit the seadas-7.3.2/config/seadas.config file to set seadas.ocssw.root =<your_real_OCSSWROOT>.   This should work fine using either the GUI or command-line.  A few things in the GUI don't appear to work with https URL's yet, so you may need to use some tools from the command line.

Thanks!
I found the ocssw folder in my home folder and moved it to the seaDAS folder. I then restarted seaDAS. All the tools under the OCSSW menu are now usable.
