Cannot save / load files using local applet version with
Netscape Navigator on a Mac.
Solution : This is a problem that seems to be
confined to the Navigator browser. I'd Suggest either trying the
Stand-Alone version of B or else running the applet version on the
latest Internet Explorer for the Mac.
When rendering Spacefilling, Spheres, Polytubes, or
Ball-and-Stick, the screen is not refreshed.
Solution : This problem is common in older Java Virtual
Machines - notably Unix and Mac JVMs. In addition, the JVMs in browsers
are typically way behind the current Java release. The best solution is
to try to find the latest JDK/JRE for your platform and run B as a
Sometimes the buttons on the toolbar stop working.
Solution : This happens when B is stopped and
restarted. Java applets have a peculiarity in that if they are started
and stopped, the whole browser must be restarted before they will work
properly again. That is, if you are running B, exit B, and
then wish to start B anew, you must first restart Netscape (or IE).
In addition, only one copy of the browser (per user) should be running
at any given time.
When using RedHat 6.0 and I click on the Start B button,
Netscape crashes with a bus error.
Solution : This is a font problem. To fix it,
1) edit /etc/X11/fs/config and add
"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi" to the 'catalogue';
2) restart the font server: /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart
