Hello, Which graphic chipset do you have? Unofficially, Mathematica 6 can benefit from hardware 3D antialiasing only when the graphics card supports it. You may encounter a slight visual problem (like blurred tick marks), but it is not limited to Mathematica (it is rather general hardware AA problem), though. You probably want to check out ATI's official Linux driver and FAQs of your particular Linux distribution for AA support on the specific card. Yu-Sung Chang Kernel Technology Wolfram Research, Inc.
