Description David Brown 2008-02-27 02:20:46 EST
Description of problem:
F4 will not start A+ in xemacs.  In the terminal, typing a+ gives:
$ a+
     Copyright (c) 1990-2005 Morgan Stanley.  All rights reserved.
     This version is Release 4.20
/usr/lib/a+/idap.+: No such file or directory

I have a single Opteron 148, running kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xemacs-aplus-fsf, aplus-fsf, aplus-fsf-devel, fonts-truetype-apl, and
fonts-x11-apl are all at 4.20.2-19.fc7.x86_64

How reproducible:
Very (every time I've tried).

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start a terminal.
2.  Type a+
3.  Or, start xemacs, hit F4, and nothing happens.
Actual results:
See above.

Expected results:
F4 should bring up a A+ terminal in the lower half.  Typing a+ in the terminal
should start the program.
