    strange. the AbiWord binary is usually called AbiWord_d or AbiWord_s but
    you should not be executing this directly. Instead there should be a
    script called abiword or AbiWord that sets environment variables and then
    executes the binary

    it looks like you are aither executing the binary directly or the script
    is setting the environment variables incorrectly. if the latter, perhaps
    the /usr/AbiSuite (or /usr/share/abisuite) has been moved at some point.

    Please check you are running the script, and if so check to see what the
    various settings/paths are inside the script
