Thank you so much, James!  

I cannot believe what an easy fix that was.  I'm a graduate student at Virginia Tech in the new SuperDARN lab, and sometimes these linux boxes are really tricky.

Have a good day!

The problem is that the script that runs IDL assumes the existence of
/bin/arch which is not present in Debian-based systems. 

replace "/bin/arch" with "uname -m" in the driver script.
