TITLE: Motif DWMOTIF125_UPD-V0100 DECwindows Motif V1.2-5 Alpha ECO

Modification Date:  21-APR-99   
Modification Type:  New Kit

NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       The name of the compressed file will be kit_name-dcx_vaxexe
       for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha.
       Once the file is copied to your system, it can be expanded
       by typing RUN compressed_file.  The resultant file will
       be the OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file which
       can be used to install the ECO.

       installation of this kit:


       In order to receive all the corrections listed in this
       kit, the following remedial kits should also be installed:



An ECO kit exists for DECwindows Motif V1.2-5 on OpenVMS V6.2 and later.  
This kit addresses the following problems: 


o New Desktop problems

        o New Desktop login dialog does not allow language selection

          The DECwindows Motif V1.2-5 New Desktop login dialog does  not
          show  languages  in  the  Options  - Languages menu.  The menu
          always shows only the "C" locale, no matter what other locales
          are available on the system.

          Without this language selection  mechanism,  language  variant
          kits  of  DECwindows  Motif  will  not  work, because the user
          cannot select the language to  be  used  in  the  New  Desktop

          This problem is fixed in the remedial kit.

        o New Desktop session does not start if default language is not "C"

          The DECwindows Motif V1.2-5 New Desktop session does not start
          when  the  default  language  is  not "C".  After entering the
          username and password, the New  Desktop  window  manager  will
          terminate  and  the  front  panel  will not be displayed.  The
          default      language      may      be      specified       in
          selecting Options - Language - English  (United  States)  from
          the  New  Desktop  login  screen.   This  problem  results  in
          language variants not working properly.

          This problem is fixed in the remedial kit.


Install this kit with the PCSI utility by logging into  the  SYSTEM
account, and typing the following at the DCL prompt:


The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that
contains the kit.

Additional help on installing PCSI kits can be found by typing
HELP PRODUCT INSTALL at the system prompt.

In order to make use of the fixes within  this  remedial  kit,  you
will  need to do one of the following things after the installation
is complete.

If you did not disable the use of shared  linkage  sections  before
starting     DECwindows    by    defining    the    logical    name
DECW$IGNORE_SHARE_ADDRESS to TRUE, you  will  need  to  reboot  the
system after installing the kit.

If you did disable the use of shared  linkage  sections,  you  will
need  to  restart DECwindows by issuing the following command after
the installation is complete.
