  This sounds like a problem that I have seen on a couple
Linux PC's. Some kind soul suggested the following which
worked both times:

>>Yes, I figured out how to fix it.
>>Go to the following directory.

 Note: XaLeap_wcl is in $AMBERHOME/dat (amber 7)

>>Edit the file "XaLeap_wcl".
>>Locate the following line
>>XaLeap*commands.text*font: *-*-medium-r-*-14-*-m-*
>>Change it into
>> -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
>>That will fix the problem.

  Apparently, RedHat doesn't always (or didn't always?) install
the default font needed here, so the command window in xleap would
"work" but you couldn't see what you were doing.

Dear Professor Case,
     It happens with PC-Linux with redhat 8.0.
     Amber6 was working fine on redhat 7.0.
     Recently I installed redhat 8.0 and amber6 and
amber7 on it. Both gives this problem
     When I used xleap command then icon for leap
appeared. After typing in this icon it is not
possible to see. But after applying the command it
respond well. But the the response typed on this icon
is not seen.
     Please suggest and oblige.
