Downloading LessTifAll the LessTif software packages are assembled nicely on the files section of our SourceForge.Net project page.
The easiest way to get started if you're a Linux user with a traditional PC is to grab all four of the binary RPM files, as described in the table below. This means that you should grab and install all of the lesstif-*.i386.rpm files. You can choose to install a subset of those four files, but we continue to get questions about that.
Those who want to use the most up to date software can choose to use the bleeding edge version, directly out of our CVS.
If you have trouble with a specific release, you may
