dear all,
i have Mathematica for students, version 3.1 running on suse linux 6.1 with
enlightenment (no gnome or kde).

very often when i want to click on something, the cursor (which is normally
a pointer) becomes a hand and won't allow me to position it where i want.
for instance, i'm looking at the "help browser" right now, and i looked at
"factor" because i want to find out how to factor a pi/2 in front of an
expression.  it says "See also FactorTerms" as a blue hyperlink.  under
windows, when i click on that, the help browser would display the help for
FactorTerms.  here, when i go to click on it, the cursor becomes a hand and
won't let me click on it.

this is kind of annoying -- can someone tell me how to avoid this?  at the
very least, i want to be able to click on hyperlink help topics that appear
in the help browser.


If I replied to your post for help with linux, email me your reply 
because I normally only read USENET posts which have gone unanswered.
