Heh.  All of that is much appreciated, and I do intend to learn LaTeX at
some point.  For now, though, I have been so impressed with WP for
Windows that I went and spent $150 on the Linux version.  Having spent
that money, I would feel really really stupid if I didn't get the
program working.

I contacted Corel Tech Support and was told that there is a patch on the
Corel ftp server to download and run instead of the install script that
comes on the CD.  I ran that, and it claims that WordPerfect was
installed successfully.  However, when I try to start WordPerfect by
typing in the command "wordperfect" at the command line, absolutely
nothing happens.  Not even an error message. I checked the permissions
on the files, and they all seem appropriately set, so I don't quite know
what's going on.
