    Hi, I just thought I'd pass on that the Linux version works fine under Mac OS X 10.3.6.

    To run on OS X 10.3.x (Panther), you'll need to download and install wxPython for Mac OS X from www.wxpython.org (wxPython2.5-osx-ansi-2.5.3.1-panther-py2.3 was what I used). Download and unpack the ABC for Linux tarball, open abc.py in a text editor and add "import sys" as the first line. Then open a terminal, cd to the directory where ABC was expanded and:

    pythonw abc.py

    It should then launch and be ready to use.

    I have downloaded a few files now, no issues so far.

    Maybe the "Linux" version should be renamed to "Unix" version.

    Note: I believe users of pre 10.3.x versions of Mac OS X may also need to download and install Python, it's in 10.3 by default

    Thanks.
    Karina.

      also works in 10.4 tiger, but if you want advanced prefs to work you need to add the line to abcoptiondig.py also.
