i have a problem that I can not open the "search" in my Cadence,
but other computers in my lab have no such problem, is there any
general reason and solution for this?
Which "search" are you talking about? Which tool are you talking about (there is no tool called "Cadence")? The search could be the search in cdsdoc, in cdsFinder, in the layout editor, in the schematic editor - you need to be more explicit in your question, otherwise nobody will be able to give you an answer.Regards,Andrew.
I am sorry if my question is not good, but I am trying to be more clear about that. Thanks for your patient.
the search is in the cdsdoc.
You still don't give any details of what is the problem. What exactly happens? Please give a step by step description of what happens.You've said the problem is with the search in cdsdoc, but not said what the symptoms are.Regards,Andrew.
ok, when I open the cdsdoc, there is a window, in the bottom of which
there is a button called " search". then I open an Moxilla( I do not
know if i can call internet exploer in Linux like this), after I press
the button, it says, the "connection is refused". So I can not
open the search. I do not know if it is clear enough now.
Can you run "cdsdoc -test" and post the output here?Regards,Andrew.
is it this?
CDSDoc 2.1 Installation verification

Directory Structure Check passed
I have been attempting to make the Help button work as well. I have found some documentation that suggests that a symbolic link in your path to "mozilla" and called netscape will work. (I have done this with limited success!)
Try setting the "CDS_DEFAULT_BROWSER" environment variable. For example, I prefer to use firefox so I have:setenv CDS_DEFAULT_BROWSER firefox...set in my .cshrc file. In the case of using mozilla instead of netscape, try this:setenv CDS_DEFAULT_BROWSER "mozilla"See "Choosing a default browser" in Chapter 6 of the CDSDoc User Guide: http://sourcelink.cadence.com/docs/files/Release_Info/Docs/cdsuser/cdsuser2.3/setPrefs.html#1033081Enjoy!Andrew.
I know its not the place to ask the question which is not related to Skill.But since the question had been asked, and that I have the same problemI tried your solution :in my .bashrc I put:CDS_DEFAULT_BROWSER=mozilla; export CDS_DEFAULT_BROWSER;Still the cdsdoc button "search" gives the following pop-up error :Error CDSDoc-002: Viewer can't startThe web browser can't be started. On UNIX, make sure that your PATH environment variable includes the path to Netscape. On Windows/NT, make sure that either Internet Explorer 5.0 (or highrt) or Netscape 4.5.1 (or higher) is installed with standard registry entries.So if anyone has another idea since I cannot go to sourcelink.cadence.com ($login$ required) and cannot acces to Chapter 6 of the CDSDoc User Guide...Regards,
Are you using IC5141? If so, CDS_DEFAULT_BROWSER is not supported in the version of cdsdoc that comes with IC5141.Regards,Andrew.
Indeed, I use :IC-5.1/tools.lnx86/dfII/sub-version 184.108.40.206which mean that I do not have other solution than install Netscape ?!Do I need to pay anything to go to sourcelink.cadence.com to have acces to the online cadence help ??Thanks for you help anyhow
No, you don't have to install netscape. Simply create a little wrapper script called netscape which invokes mozilla inside. For example:#!/bin/shexec mozilla "$@"And make sure this is in your path.BTW, you're using the initial (Base) release of IC5141 - that's pretty old, and there have been a lot of updates since then. Access to sourcelink is for customers on maintenance - you need to register using the hostid of your license server. If you're from a university (I don't know...), then you may not be able to access sourcelink - it depends on the university program (if you're under a university program). I guess you could try registering and seeing what happens!Regards,Andrew.
thanks ! Indeed, I found the ID to create my account for sourcelink,ANDyou solution works, whereas i tried before posting, a simple alias netscape='mozilla' that was not working, but a simple "sh ... exec " as you suggested work.Many thanks
