I had the same problem when I installed 9.2 on my newly-installed RH7.1
yesterday. I tried the fixes recommended on the website, but no go. I got
some kind of error messages about colors after I tried the fixes. I am a
rank newbie and pretty clumsy with the whole Linux installation thing, so
it could be just me. I sure would like to try Abiword, though...
