If you are not using WAVE with a Sun keyboard, use the key to open XView spot help for WAVE . If this doesn't work, you may need to use the `xmodmap' utility (a standard component of X11, usually found in the same directory as other X clients such as `xterm'). Try the following command:
xmodmap -e "keysym F1 = Help"
If you are now able to use to open spot help, you may wish to include this command in your `.xinitrc' (a text file in your home directory; create it if it doesn't exist) so that spot help via is enabled whenever you log in.
If you are not using olwm or olvwm, spot help may not work properly; in particular, your window manager may pass incorrect information about which window is active when you invoke spot help. There is no general solution to this problem; try using olvwm or olwm, at least until you are familiar with WAVE 's controls.
