Why should there be?

SO & OOo work on documents.  SO7 provides you an empty document.
What's the problem?

That should do it.

How about KDE System Guard (ksysguard)?

Try to append

Probably the driver is in the initrd (initial ram disk). Is it activated
directly after loading the kernel, or later?

I think hotplug can also be responsible for loading it, unless it is
configured to ignore graphic cards (which is the default). However
hotplug does not run directly after booting the kernel. If the driver
is used right from the beginning of the booting process, hotplug is not
the reason.

pdftohtml

Hello,

I have a few problems with pdftohtml (unstable) :

with one pdf file I get a suitable html file but with another one I get an unreadable html file.

I tried "pdftohtml -c -l 1 file.pdf"  but the output is always unreadable and I get the message:  

free(): invalid pointer 0x80f02e0!
Page-1

However xpdf (or gv) displays correctly this file.pdf.

I guess that the problem comes out of the feature of this pdf file and I would like to know if it 

exists a remedy, despite of all, to get a suitable result.

TIA

Debian Sarge on HP B2000

Has anyone gotten X working for Debian Sarge on
a hppa machine?  I am using the 11/22/04 snapshot
on a HP B2000, and no matter how many times I run
'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86' with various
options, I cannot get X configured correctly.

Here are the last things I see in the XFree86.0.log;
I assume I have to use the framebuffer driver since
this is an FXE graphics card.

(II) FBDEV: driver for framebuffer: fbdev
(II) VGA: Generic VGA driver (version 4.0) for chipsets: generic
(II) v4l driver for Video4Linux
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such device
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Well, it seems SO7 doesn't provide him with an empty, but with *no*
document. Still, I think that's how it's meant to be. At least some
former versions of StarOffice (and maybe OpenOffice) presented a sort
of desktop view from which you could start the individual applications
like Writer or Calc.

The OpenOffice incarnation I have here (1.1.2) also seems to look the
way you describe it. The application starter - or however you would
call it - from KDE only has links to the separate apps (Writer, Calc,
etc). When I start it manually by typing `openoffice' I get a blank
screen with a menu on top saying File, Edit, etc. So your SO7 seems
fine.

HTEYM, (Hope That Eases Your Mind)

Re: StarOffice 7

Thanks for the info.

Just making sure that the installation was correct.  It is a
blank window, not an empty document.  Seems like Sun would at
least put some sort of logo here or provide an option to start
the application with a empty default document of my choice.

That's how it used to be. But people felt that this was bloated and
Sun had no business taking over their desktop. Sun listened. At least
that's how I remember it.
