Thank you for your patient advice and explanation.  Really appreciated!

Oh, well, here is a general advice to all the good guys - don't grow old; the 
short term memory gets shot in old age, eventually  followed by all memory as 
t the departure time approaches...  :)

I should have recalled the earlier bash at the installation, but I did not.  
And I got the impression that installation from ppa was recommended.

The branching complains about the inability to load plugin 'gtk', as the 
following CLI dialog shows:

ak at amd64:~/.bazaar/plugins$ bzr branch lp:bzr-explorer explorer
Unable to load plugin 'gtk'. It requested API version (1, 13, 0) of module 
<module 'bzrlib' from '/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/bzrlib/__init__.pyc'> 
but the minimum exported version is (1, 17, 0), and the maximum is (1, 17, 0)
Branched 250 revision(s).                                                      
ak at amd64:

(I am ak and amd64 is the name of my pc - I think I have the 32 bit ubuntu on 
it.) From my CLI:

ak at amd64:/dat/programs/fem/trunk$ uname -a
Linux amd64 2.6.28-13-generic #45-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 30 19:49:51 UTC 2009 i686 

The complaint is repeated On attempt to run the explorer with 'bzr explorer' 
the complaint about gtk is repeated. 

Hmmm- I better look at your earlier mail, Ian.  I think there was a mention 
about running it under the name of 'main', no?  'bzr main' complains about gtk 
and then gives error: `bzr: ERROR: unknown command "main"`

On the happy side, the q* commands seem to run in their own windows without 
any problems.

Perhaps I should return to my structural analysis program suite, but not just 
yet - I still feel  like bashing my head against a wall for a while...

Thank you everybody for your patience reading this!
