[Gnumed-devel] I need some direction.

Hello Group,

Please forgive me if I posted to the wrong list.

I received an email through the Ubuntu Forums that GnuMed may do what I was 
looking for some software to do for me. I have a need to archive some medical 
records. After looking through the docs on the GnuMed site, I decided I wanted 
to give it a go.

The problem I have is when I try to launch the client I get an error message 
which I will append to the end of this message.

Here are my particulars:

OS: Ubuntu 8.04
PostgreSQL 8.3
Gnumed Client

I would like to hook up a Fujitsu scanner and scan and archive, death records 
and other patient data so the paper records can eventually be destroyed and 
maintain the ability to search and print various records archived to the 
system. I understand that GNUMED is capable of doing it. If I can get it 
working at this hospital, I have four or five more facilities that would be 
interested in that solution, in return, I expect feedback that could help make 
the product better.

Here is the error I get when trying to start the client, can someone help me 
fix it? I am not a linux newbie, but at the same time I am no guru.

Many thanks for your time and energy.
