That is nice! I believe that you are the first who has managed this.

Would you be willing to share how you have done this? If so, we could
create an account on the ESPResSo wiki:

where you could create a page that gives some hints on how to do it!

The binary "Espresso_bin" requires the environment variable
ESPRESSO_SCRIPTS to be set to the path where the tcl scripts are to be
found (normally <source directory>/scripts). In this way, you should be
able to use Espresso in any case.

Usually, the shell script "Espresso" does this for you, but depending on
your setup, this might fail. I would be interested in why it fails,
therefore a few questions:
* Do run Espresso directly from the build directory, or did you use
"make install"? The Espresso shell-script differs in these cases.
* How exactly do you try to run your scripts, i.e. from what directory
do you start it, and how exactly do you start it?
