Any ideas?

That's what mine looks like too. When I click Files and drag the cursor down to Open and release, it puts up a "Directory Browser" in the directory where I called it. Do you have the MrSID_HOME envariable set to the directory where it's installed? I wasn't sure where to point it, so I set it to the complete pathname of the executable, including the executable itself: % setenv MrSID_HOME /usr/local/bin/MrSID It doesn't appear to matter whether I aim it there or at the executable in the directory where I unpacked it.

After selecting a .sid file, the "Save" is no longer dimmed.

I'm on an upgraded RedHat 9, with 2.4.22-ac4 kernel and KDE 3.2.3, if that
