This feature is actually a very new addition to GNOME - the "Xalf" program
was added in 1.4. You might want to check if you have it installed.
I certainly have it on my Debian sid machine at home, but it looks like it's
not included in Ximian GNOME... *runs off to ask one of the Ximian

ago, as the original versions were quite buggy. They are seriously
considering putting a more recent version in now that it has improved.
You might want to download Xalf from your distribution's archives, or go
straight to the source (so to speak) at:
