dear halizah (if i may),

not to worry about this message, the Matrix is nowadays distributed on
a different channel (and should maybe be purged from the installer).

> When I try to access LKB by writing manual the instructions:

yes, this is a known dependency.  you could either install the correct
version of OpenMotif (see the LKB FAQ), or better yet run:


the above is a shell script that sets up LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the
copy of libXm.so.3 that is installed as part of the DELPH-IN tree.  or,
better yet, follow the instructions given by the installer for loading
the LKB from within emacs.  that, again, should fix up LD_LIBRARY_PATH

                 i hope this helps!  all best for the new year  -  oe

nb: i have updated the instructions on the wiki to point to the script
rather than the platform-specific $DELPHINHOME/lkb/linux.x86.32/lkb.
