    I don't know if you've read my most recent message. The statement
    which causes the problem is fl_refresh_selector. I also noticed today
    that the double click on a file will not cause the selector to return the
    file name. I have to click on the button.

    I'll try that tomorrow, but highly doubt that it due to an old version.

    No messages. Compiler and linker are both happy.

    I put the and libforms.a in /lib/. The forms.h is in

    It behaves exactly the same at work, which was installed from Zentropix
    1.0 real time which is Red Hat 5.2, and at home which runs on
    Mandrake 7.1. The one at home is only about a month old. I'm positive
    there are no strays in my home computer.

    I've got both xform versions on both machines and can switch the
    links between 0.88 and 0.89. It's definitely is linked to 0.89.

    I'll see if I can find an example which uses fl_refresh_fselector.

    I guess I was just wondering is anybody else has used
    fl_refresh_selector with version 0.89 without problems. Have you
    tried it?

    I found my font problem. I had to move the fl_set_default_font
    after the fl_initialize. (I don't recall the exact commands used.)

    The 0.89 works great with vnc, which was the reason for making the
    change. I'm dealing with people that want to remotely monitor my
    system with NT. I'm going to have to put an ad on my app.

    I appreciate the help, Steve.
