I'm trying to address the special issues related to using Mathematica on the Linux platform. I use SuSE Linux. I hit a lot of snags which I suspect I would not if I used a Windows system. These are typically not all that big if a problem _once I figure out what's going on_. What I hope to do is collect all such matters and document them effectively in something like a Mathematica Linux survival guide. If anybody is familiar with gotchas which I haven't discussed here http://188.8.131.52/proprietary/com/wri/index.html I'm interested in hearing what you have to say. Of particular interest are the issues faced by a person who is not familiar with the technical aspects of Linux and Unix. What does the former Windows user experience? What would help make this less painful? STH
