What distribution are you running. This usually (haven't found a counterexample yet) happens with SuSE Linux distrbutions. It is due to an overbroad X resource setting in the system Xresources file. You can find information on how to resolve the problem at Wolfram Research's Technical Support website. http://sdb.suse.de/sdb/en/html/mathematica3.html http://support.wolfram.com/Systems/Unix/Linux/DeleteNext.html Should you happen to be running a non-SuSE distribution, the instructions at the WRI website should be sufficiently generalized to track down the source of the offending resources. -- P.J.
