 Hi,
    I have Netscape 3.0 for Slackware Linux.
  It shows the applets very well for user "root",
  where it was installed. For other users I can't see the    applets in Netscape. Ofcourse, the setting of CLASSPATH
  and PATH is the same setting like "root". What addition    set I have to do?
 
    Thanks,  klivlend.

Check the installation directory and check that all the files have execution permission for every body, something like
rwxr-xr-x (755) should work.

 Thanks jlms,

     I already solved the problem.
  It was found that the library gnumalloc.so
  must be installed in /lib and LD_PRELOAD
  must be assigned to this path. It's a known
  problem of Netscape 3.0 under Linux.
     Why it worked in the "root" user.
  I think, accidentally, since gnumalloc solves
  the allocation memory problem and  this is
  the possible case.

  Bye, klivlend
