            Re: Weird category
            GenJ offers a component for geographical representation of genealogic data ... maybe a little bit of a stretch but not completely wrong imho.

            Don't know how strict that is handled here - I'm fine with removing that category :)

            Cheers

            Certainly this should not be in category Scientific/Engineering :: Geographical?

            Version 2.3 was a drop-in and go install so you might have better luck with it.

            The run scripts are executable in 2.3 so the author seems to have rectified this.

            Something like this is better under your home dir (or a subdir off of home). I used ~/genj and it works.

            This is a "feature" in the file managers. They show as executable because of their extensions. Any file with .sh will be green regardless of it's actual permissions.


            > bummer.


            Try the latest version and see if it makes a difference.

            A little more info on getting java scripts set up with chmod would be nice chmod +x or u+x ??

            Where to stick it in Mandrake and others. tried as subir in java as genj, then tried in subdir of /opt as genj.

            run.sh and run.jar are green in mc and konqueror. should be executable
