What if the Image Window doesn't refresh correctly under NX?

This is a bug in NX and should be fixed in newer versions of the NX server.

Depending on the version of NX you have try adding one of the following options:

   AgentExtraOptions="-defer 0"

If this doesn't work try setting the Link Type to "LAN". This may be slower, but may also work.

Finally, try using "adxv -nopixmap"

Visualizing XDS data reduction

The latest beta versions of ADXV (from can read spot files (whose name ends with .adx) and display them together with the frames.

These spot files can be written by generate_adx. In adxv's file selection window, it is useful to change the filename pattern from e.g. "*.cbf" to just "*" which then gives you the possibility to load frames and spot files at will.

If using ADXV on a NoMachine (NX) desktop, it is useful to know that one needs the -nopixmap commandline option if the frame is not correctly displayed (I found that the zoom window still does not display correctly).
