I am running gentoo, and I recently got annoyed enough with abiword that I thought I would jump ship from gnome to kde to try kword.
So I emerged kword, and tried to run it. I get the following:
koffice (lib kofficecore): WARNING: Library files for ".la" not found in paths.
I tried recompiling kword, and compiling koffice-meta ebuild first (following the gentoo KDE howto), but nothing changed the failure. I tried to find out what .la files were, and ran into a dead-end in libtool land. Google was unhelpful - am I the only person experiencing this failure?
The funny thing is if I login as root, kword starts fine. However, doing all my word processing as root is not an acceptable solution (and hard to explain to my wife!).
