:) I never tryed the ide under X, but I just tested it now. The drawing 
characters seen ugly but altGR key works fine! But I prefer to use the ide in 
a console if it is possible...

I tryed also RHIDE and seen that it has problems with catching alt keys for 
using it for special functions (it does not work at all). In fp IDE it works 
right, but I don't know why altGR combinations does not work...

I am trying fp under linux console on Mandrake 7.2, kernel 2.2.17. Any
