Here is what I recommend.  There is a very nice Unix version of ORTEP
that can be compiled under an X environment and you could try the same.
You can fetch the Unix version by:

passwd:<your name>
cd pub/chemistry/software/ORTEP
get <the necessary files>

Alternatively, you could contact my good friend Norimasa Yamazaki in
Japan at the following address:

Incidentally, he is also the author of the Unix port of ORTEP. 

Hope this helps.
