On some recent Linux versions Mulberry fails to launch because of an issue with the aspell plug-in. You need to remove the plug-in, located in .mulberry/Plug-ins/ASpellPlugin.so


Another observation about installing v4.0.5 for linux:

If you see buttons and popups with no text, or if there are missing/mismatched tabs and sections in the preferences box, and if mulberry crashes when you click on the last tab in the preferences box, you probably untarred Mulberry somewhere besides your home directory. A hidden directory, ~/.mulberry, and its initial contents are untarred along with the executable, and need to be in your user directory. The first time you run Mulberry, it looks for this and adds some more stuff to it. If the directory isn't already there, Mulberry creates it, but not all the files, plug-ins, etc., that it needs to run will be there, and things will be weird and unusable. If you untar in you home directory and run Mulberry once from there, I think you can then move the executable anywhere you want. (SuSE 9.3)
