OpenSuSE = OpenSuSE 10.2
Ubuntu = Ubuntu 6.10

- Linux Ubuntu,OpenSuSE
Its not possible to copy/paste a text into the same window

- Linux Ubuntu
the file open dialog does not work. when doing a selection the content of the directory is cleared and a wrong file path is created

- Linux Ubuntu
installation still not possible due to missing /bin/csh

- Linux Ubuntu, Fedora 6
lots of error messages due to invalid X11 configuration files places in the filesystem

- Linux Ubuntu, OpenSuSE
conversion of strings between code pages do not - more or less - work

- Linux Ubuntu, OpenSuSE
impossible to enter German Umlauts into any VASmalltalk window

- no characters are written in the script (as if no key has been pressed)
- strange characters are written

as an example in the Transcript window ...

Hi Marten,

Thanks for your report. I have reproduced some these problems on RedHat Linux and SUSE.

We will add them to our list of things to fix for Linux.
