- Q: The Import using GenBank IDs does not work behind a proxy.
- A: Yes, unfortunately
the Seqhound Web Services that are utilized are not maintained anymore and
do not support proxy usage. We are going to replace the Seqhound Services
by another free option that will work behind HTTP proxies.

not work with my BLAST, FASTA, R version!.

- Q: PROMPT
crashes with SIGSEGV 11 or similar messages on some LINUX KDE versions.
A: Use another window manager instead for example GNOME or tinywindow manager or update your system (more infos1 infos2)
PROMPT seems to run slow if it is
started over a remote X-connection. This is a known problem of SUN's SWING
A: Start PROMPT with the parameter -no_buffer . This disables the double-buffering, but may introduce some flickering (more infos).
A strange Java error appears if PROMPT is started.
A: This can happen if you have an old Java Runtime installed. Check your Java version by executing java -version in the command line.
Using the tiny window manager (twm) on Linux, I can not open deeper menu entries
A: Use the keyboard to navigate through the menu line or try an updated version of the window manager/your Java Virtual machine.
