Hi Erik,

I'm assuming you're using the linux vm from gliebe.de/self - or have you  
compiled your own from the sourceforge.net cvs tree?

Something seems to have changed in recent Ubuntus (Ubunti? :) that breaks  
the integration between X11 and the vm - I've been looking at it but  
haven't had time to nail it down.

If you have time and the setup it would be great if you could try it on  
some other distributions (older Ubuntu versions, or Fedora or Suse)

If you want to run Self on linux (or windows) immediately you could try  
the premade VMWare image (which is Ubuntu 5.10, btw).
