Hi James,

I just tested e-sword here, works fine (Ctrl-F1/Ctrl-F2 shortcut). I got it working (ages back) using the volumes of information available at ubuntuforums.org (tons of users trying to do that there, someone even maintains a script to automate the setup process), though I'm no longer using that distro.

Will look into the rest of the stuff later, thanks.
