trace from starting soffice via bash -x
a. yes i have a nvidia card gforce fx 5200
b. When I start the binary directly
"/usr/lib/openoffice.org1.9.104/program/soffice.bin" the app executes without
any problems. The problem occure when i try to start the app from the script.
I modified the script's line # 247, I added "gdb" infront of the line and tried
to run it again. Attached, please find the debug output from the bash -x and gdb.
the crucial line is...
