Re: [bug-gv] possible bug gv - won't open file

Hello Mr Bader,

thanks for the clarification of the -dSAFER feature.

Is there a switch in a config file like ~/.profile or ~/.xinitrc that
could be used for this purpose?

Alternatively, I do have root access on my home system and do not mind
turning off the -dSAFER option by default somewhere you direct in the
/etc directory.

Thanks to all in advance for the help.

Kind regards,
