Many keys not working under Linux Mandrake 10.1

Hi all,

I just installed Mathematica 5.01 under Linux Mandrake 10.1, and many 
keys are not working in the graphical interface: cursors (beep), delete 
(square drawn), back (square drawn), shift+return (just a return), etc. 
Additinally, I cannot select the text with the mouse. All this makes the 
graphical interface essentially unusable.

I don't know if this may have something to do with the fact that 
Mandrake 10.1 uses unicode as default.

I have looked at the Mathematica FAQ and searched this group and the web 
with google, without any result.

Any idea?

Many thanks in advance,

Daniel Arteaga
