When using koffice from a LTSP client logged into KDE I get the following error.

[patron32@kcc3 patron32]$ kword
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display "ws244.ltsp:0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display "ws244.ltsp:0.0".

Kword fails to start.

Comment 3 Than Ngo 2003-02-03 13:38:40 UTC
please upgrade the current kde 3.1/koffice-1.2.1 from rawhide, It seems to be
fixed in this release. I cannot reproduce it anymore.
