    Excuse me, I was so worried writing the e-mail in English I didn't realize.
Well the "Bloq. Num." must be something like "Num. Block." in English. I's a key
located right of the keyboard, and it activates the use of the ¿Numpad? (I'm sorry
I don't know its name in English), those keys with the numbers which work as
cursors, Home key, End key... if the "Block. Num." key is not activated (keyboards
normally have 3 LED's at the top right, and one of them is for the "Num. Block."

 I hope I explained it good enough.

OK, that is just what I'm doing

    Well, once more, if anyone had the same problem with the non selectable menus
under Linux and found a solution I'd be really thankful if he shares the solution
with me.

    Well, I must apologize. I wasn't complaining about v. It was just a joke I
made cause it was supposed to be fully portable between different OS's and pretty
easy to program. I guess all that is true, but unfortunately I was unable to
install it in Windows 98, I had trouble with Linux and couldn't install the
Lesstif libraries here at the Sun station to use the Motiff version of version
1.22. But obviously other people were able to do all that, so It must be my fault
cause I am not very used to work with GNU software.

Thanks once more anyway
