    Sorry to ask on the list but I can't find the answer
    in the AbiWord help, or doing Google searches.

    I want to use Abi's command line interface to convert
    files on a remote unix system. I have no X server
    so this is the only way I can run AbiWord.

    I've tried these commands with 1 and 2 dashes:
    -from foo.txt -to foo.rtf

    I always get this error:
    Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

    Wasn't there some discussion recently about using
    AbiWord this way without involving X? What was the
    result? I can't find a bug related to this - is there
    one or should I file one?
