Last Published: April 25, 2020

Solution or Workaround


On Solaris 2.5, 2.5.1, 2.6, typing the ARC HELP command returns this message: /esri/hh_solaris2/bin/hyperhelp: fatal: can't open file:


The path to the library is not included in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.


1. Edit the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in the your .cshrc file to include the '/usr/dt/lib' path. The setenv line should look like this:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $ARCHOME/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/dt/lib  

2. Source your .cshrc file

unix%>source ~/.cshrc

ArcDoc will start properly.
