Inertiatoggle under the
Morebutton from the Top Row Window.
virdir is very similar to
% parti gal2.cf or, % virir gal2.cf
partiviewuser will need to relearn a few modes to get used to
virdir. In particular, at AMNH starting virdir will probably cause your console screen (which is normally panel#1 on the dome) to go dark with no visible command prompt. To regain control, type the commands (blindly)
which will put
raise fly idle
virdirin fly and animation mode.
Here are some important modes, make sure you keep the mouse in the console window. It is easy to get it lost in any of the other 6 displays which are only visible on the dome.
