Hello everybody,

I can now confirm that gambas does not work when the X11 driver from NVIDIA is 
installed, and that it is NVIDIA driver fault !

A gambas user has uninstalled its NVIDIA driver, and gambas suddenly starts 
working ! Here is what he sent me :

I think the problem comes from the fact that gambas is not directly linked to 
X11, but loads it at runtime.

If someone wants to tell NVIDIA the problem :-)
