Title: dotty can't find dotty.lefty on Solaris 8
Submitter: Karsten Kuenne
Date: Wed Aug 24 16:54:12 2005
Subsys: Dotty/Lneato/Lefty
Version: 2.4
System: Sparc-Solaris-8
Severity: major
Problem:
On Solaris 8 the 2.4 dotty command fails with:

dotty: cannot locate the dotty scripts
       make sure that the environment variable LEFTYPATH
       is set to the directory containing dotty.lefty
That didn't happen with version 1.16 for instance. Users aren't used to set LEFTYPATH and they usually don't know what to set it to.
Fix:
I inserted something like:

if [ -z "$LEFTYPATH" ]; then
      export LEFTYPATH=/usr/local/share/graphviz/lefty
fi
into dotty. But, of course, this has to be customized to the installation path.
