Jeff, thanks for your reply.
I'm a relatively new to the programming scene, so forgive me if I did
First of all I'd like to comment that I just found out that "make
install" installed everything under /AbiSuite instead of
/usr/local/AbiSuite as it's promissed on the web page. ;^) In any
case, I changed into /AbiSuite/bin, had a look at AbiWord script, and
figured out to do the following:
main:/AbiSuite/bin# export ABISUITE_HOME=/AbiSuite
main:/AbiSuite/bin# export ABISUITE_FONT_HOME=$ABISUITE_HOME/fonts
main:/AbiSuite/bin# xset fp+ $ABISUITE_FONT_HOME
Then I ran "gdb AbiWord_d". Once inside it, I did "set args
-nosplash", and then "run". The program started, and hung as
previously. There were no messages of any sort in gdb shell. I had to
do "Ctrl-C" inside it to close AbiWord's window. Here's the only info
that appeared in gdb:
(gdb) set args -nosplash
Starting program: /AbiSuite/bin/./AbiWord_d -nosplash
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0x808d518 in AP_TopRuler::_drawTabProperties ()
Please tell me if this is in any way helpful, and whether there's
smthing else I could do to track down the problem.
