The second issue is known and has been discussed on the mailing list. It's one o fthe main reasons Frank made the demeter-devel package:

As for the first issue, I am not clear what exactly is happening. This works as expected, at least on my linux machine. Are you not able to press either of the buttons on the dialog? Do you press one or the other and it hangs? Does the dialog not appear on the screen?

What happens if you simply delete the autosave file? (It should be $HOME/.horae/stash/Athena.autosave)

*1st) starting athena from the terminal*

I get the following message but the software hangs (rainbow wheel of
death) and I am unable to advance to the main page

"Athena found and autosave file. Would you like to import"

I tried uninstalling in terminal:sudo port uninstall xorg-server demeter
and reinstalling in terminal:sudo port install xorg-server demeter

but the program still hangs

*2nd) The screens for artemis and atoms have black backgrounds so that

As a new user I am having a hard time using the software in a semi-blind
