Oh! The SGI machine I am using is Indigo 2 ZX. I am not sure
what the graphics board is. When I run Matlab R6 from other machine and
display the Xwindows. I find some windows display wrong color (Not the
same as what I see in the original machine which runs Matlab)
Particularly, the figure windows turn totally black. I cannot see
anything in them.
Do you know how to fix this problem?
