B.0 Appendix B.  X-Windows Messages
    
   This appendix contains error messages that are generated by the X-Windows licensed program.  When X-Windows creates a message, it will display the message in one of the following ways:
    
      at the current virtual terminal
      at the console
      in a message pop-up in the window that had the error.  To remove the
       message pop-up, click any button on your mouse within the pop-up.
    
   Read the message and take the appropriate action.
    
   X-Windows messages start with the number 073.
    
   Refer to IBM RT Messages Reference for information on other messages.
