Hi Bert and Subbu,

The Linux is a not too old Ubuntu.

I think the problem was that I wasn't double-clicking on the correct file
(etoys.sh).  I will give that a try on my sons laptop this weekend.  If
that fails I will try Subbu's suggestion above.

I now have another question buy I will ask it in another post as I don't
want to change the subject of this thread yet again.

Thanks for all the help, Lou
