Starting Point: Installed

All the "how-to-do-it" instructions on this website presuppose that:

  1. You have installed WinGRASS using the methods spelled out in INSTALL
  2. You have Downloaded Spearfish sample data.
  3. You have used SPEARFISH to create /home/[your login]/database and have extracted the Spearfish data there, and using Windows Explorer, your file directory looks very much like this:

    GRASS directory
    Where "John" appears would be whatever identity is used to log you onto your computer.

  4. You have used How to make the bash screen a "kinder, gentler" screen to change the colors of the Cygwin Bash screen. Its no big deal if you haven't, but your Cygwin Bash screen won't look as nice as mine!

  5. We now have WinGRASS (with suitable sample data) all installed on our computers and we are now ready take it around the block. My startup screens look like this: :
    desktop
    CLICK TO ENLARGE

  6. If your startup screen doesn't look remarkably similar, best advice is that you start over, do a full UNINSTALL, and start over. There is no point in trying to go further until you get this right.
