So this begs the question,

When you start it via the terminal whree is it starting from?

Type:  which fldigi

This should show where fldigi starts from when you type fldigi at the
terminal prompt.

Is it starting from a different location than when starting from
pskmail_server and as you put it xterm?

Explain the difference between terminal and xterm..
