  Just a quick question: if you use an example with text in it, does the text show up in the output on the version that works (OpenSuSE)? Someone else reported no crash, but no text output either.

   Otherwise I can't help. For what it's worth, I discovered that in the Ubuntu (and I assume any Gnome) desktop, Alt-PrintScreen does screen capture on a single window, which is a good workaround for rgl.snapshot() [although it would still be nice to have rgl.postscript() working ...]
