I am having a strange problem that I would like to share with you since
it appears to me to be a problem in the native jdk 1.4.1 :-)
The problem lies in a program to edit and view multiple alignments
(biology stuff, you don't really need to know what this is ;)
Here's how to reproduce it:
create a script.sh
cheetah% cat script.sh
# grab jalview's latest and greatest
tar -zxvf source-1.7.5b.tgz
# grab the alignment file. :-)
java jalview.AlignFrame mfsmdr12.aln File CLUSTAL
/usr/local/linux-sun-jdk1.4.1/bin/java jalview.AlignFrame mfsmdr12.aln
And now the problem:
The first time the app comes up, in the file dir, say to save postscript
to local file.
Sometimes I can't even open a dialog box with "browse" and I have never
ever been able to save the alignment. :-)
Now, this werks with java from linux jdk1.4.1... (the second time the
app comes up).
Ideas? I'm out of them :)
