[WD5BJT@WD5BJT ~]$


Selecting "Activities - Show Applications - BOINC Manager" the application starts.
Only under the "File" and "Help" drop down choices are available and work.
Under the "View" "Activity" "Options" "Tools" all choices are grayed out and
unavailable. Under the "Tools" choices I cannot "Add project..." to add
SETI@Home" as a project.

Thank You for the assistance.
