Mark is correct, there are still quite a few problems with Geomview,
especially having to do with the rendering algorithm. You might be able
to fix some of the other problems now though. The warning messages you are
seeing are probably Keysym binding warnings from Motif (Geomview's X user
interface). You might be able to eliminate these messages by downloading
the file /priv/daeron/src/XKeysymDB from our ftp server (ftp.geom.umn.edu)
and installing it in /usr/lib/X11/XKeysymDB on your Sun.

Also, if you download the latest source for Geomview, you will get an
additional external module, pssnap, which allows you to save postscript
snapshots of objects. It suffers from some of the same rendering
problems as Geomview though.
