Is GKS (Graphical Kernel System) dead?

Need to find a new GKS package for an old visualization program.
posted by poodelina to Computers & Internet
My office has for many years been developing and using a computer model visualization program that is written in FORTRAN and uses GKS (Graphical Kernel System) for graphical input and output. We have run this program on both Windows and Unix platforms. The GKS package that we have used on our Unix workstation is no longer supported, and will not work on the new Linux server that will replace our old Unix machine. Can anyone suggest where we might find a GKS graphics package to use on our new Linux (Redhat) computer? We have already tried gli/gks (doesn’t support mouse input), NCAR (does not allow user input), and xGKS (doesn’t support printers). Any input would be appreciated.
