AHAHAHAHA! I got it! > I downloaded .5, compiled and installed it, and no changes. I think > I'll ask some other Gentoo people what they think. This was true, however, Gentoo is a little funny: they have a program called Emerge that locates and installs Linux software for you. I had used that to install TN5250. When I ran tn5250 -version I got the correct version, but I reinstalled anyway so that I would know where I was coming from. As I posted, I did all this with no effect. My network admin, who got me onto Gentoo in the first place, pointed out that Emerge installs programs in /usr/bin instead of /usr/loca/bin, so even after I reinstalled it from source I as unknowningly running the previous (and apparently flawed) version! Once I deleted the old stuff from /usr/bin it waorked like a charm: both underscores and Function keys are working properly now. Maybe we should post a note for Gentoo users on the website? Whew, I'm a much happier boy now! Thanks, Joel
