Re: gnumeric on os x

Not sure how that will help -- gnumeric is looking for a dbus socket.   In my user
account if I execute

launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

then ssconvert works file.

But there doesn't seem to be a way to do that for _www

I admit this whole goffice thing is a bit of a mystery to me.  One thing I don't like
about OS X is how many linux apps need some sort of special handling.

Are you in fact running gconfd? Since this seems to be on a web server
chances are that you don ont have a gconfd running. In any case for a
web server I would probably compile goffice
--with-config-backend=keyfile and use a keyfile for Gnumeric's
