V 1.23 and LessTif (and Motif fix)
The recently release V 1.23 (and I suppose earlier versions as well)
will not work with LessTiff 0.89. It works just fine with 0.88, but
the LessTif guys seriously broke something in 0.89.
I also have a change that will make 1.23 compatible with true Motif.
It is a one line change that will make most apps work (vertical
progress bars will still be broken, but I have that fixed, too).
To fix, in vcmdpane.cxx, change line 168 in vCommandPane::initialize
from: XmNresizeHeight,1, // bug in LessTif - can't do both
to: XmNresizeHeight,1, // bug in pre-0.88 LessTif - can't do
XmNresizeWidth,1, // needed for Motif, works in 0.88
This was a workaround for LessTif that broke Motif. If you need a
progress bar, I can send that code.
I found that V 1.23 will work with MetroWorks Linux Motif 1.2 with that
simple change. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with other
Motif 1.2 implementations.
