Description Sebastian Werner 2002-01-06 08:24:47 UTC
Abiword - the newest one - abiword- crash on my system. It
tells me about ten messageboxes with something like font-problems and not
calling about wrapper script. The toolbars are there and then the application
crash full.

I called it in Gnome and on a console with 'Abiword'. I don't know what it want.

Abiword needs true type fonts. try adding 'Load "type1"'
to the "Module" section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config file
like so:

Section "Module"
        Load            "bitmap"
        Load            "freetype"
        Load            "speedo"
        Load            "type1"

Are you using GdkXFT when trying to run Abiword? If so, try to disable it and
try it again.

I figure this is GdkXFT related, since if I remember correctly the reported uses
