[Therion] Metapost error 256

Hello everyone -

I am trying to get Therion to work on a laptop.  As far as I can tell, it is 
configured exactly the same as my desktop computer where Therion works just 
fine.

Both systems are on the same version of Therion.  Both are 64-bit Fedora 20.  
Both have the same set Texlive, Metapost and font packages.  Therion.ini is 
identical.  From a command prompt "mpost --version" produces the same output.  
I have checked file system permissions, and they all are the same.

Any clues?  What else should I look at?

Thanks - Bill Gee
