Re: Debian removal of Qt4 in Bullseye and beyond

Re: kevinarden's remark about Debian continuing to furnish QT4. There was a detailed letter from the Debian maintainers that I read some months ago that outlined why they won't do that. The bottom line is that Qt4 is no longer being maintained up stream and it is getting very hard to update packagin...

Re: Body Property confusion

Thanks for the reply. I have all of the up to date manuals. I just found the wording a bit confusing in the ElmerGUI manual. Your missives helped. I started with the manual instead of the tutorial because the type is bigger. At 83 I need all of the help I can get.

Gary R,

Re: Invalid character errors(solved)

Thanks for the reply's. I solved the problem by completely stripping out the software and downloading a new zip file. This installation no longer has the problem. I must have gotten a transfer error. Seems to be a good reason for using check sums, although I am too lazy to do so most of the time. So...
