The GridFlow folder, without the make install, is meant to not be copied 
anymore. Use an alias (symlink) across folders, or use an additional 
-path, or even move the folder, but don't copy. If you copy, it will still 
work, of course, but you'll have two copies of GridFlow for no reason.

Starting from a terminal may reveal some additional error messages.
