Update on Xastir and shape files!

Hmm... me thinks I was missing something! what I have running (or now I
realise not running!) to have the shape file placed in
the /usr/local/share/xastir/maps results in the shape files being loaded
but no change in their colour when a warning goes out to air!

As Ray explained if you have the shape files in your maps directory you
get a pretty grey map with the counties/municipalities outlined in
black, this was the comment I meant when I said I had pretty maps! after
copying the file into the countries directory then I don't have any
pretty colours either... :( So I then decided to install them onto my
note book this has Ui-View32 installed and got it all set up nicely! now
I see what I should be seeing in Xastir! but sorry to report that they
don' t display as they do in Ui-View... still fidlin' 

I'll report back if I make any further progress...
