> Hello Luis,
some of the problems I see in the output that you attach is because you are
running gvSIG (gvSIG.sh) with a wrong shell.

gvSIG needs to be executed with a bash.
If your system does not have a bash, it will not run.

Try running it with bash:

$ bash /opt/gvSIG-desktop/gvSIG-desktop-2.3.1/gvSIG.sh

Or simply by running:

$ /opt/gvSIG-desktop/gvSIG-desktop-2.3.1/gvSIG.sh

without indicating the shell, since the "gvSIG.sh" itself indicates which
shell should be executed.

a greeting


Hola Luis,
algunos de los problemas que veo en la salida que adjuntas es por que estas
ejecutando gvSIG (gvSIG.sh) con el shell que no toca.

gvSIG requiere ser ejecutado con un bash.
Si en tu sistema no hay un bash no ira.

Prueba a ejecutarlo con bash:

$ bash /opt/gvSIG-desktop/gvSIG-desktop-2.3.1/gvSIG.sh

o simplemente ejecutando:

$ /opt/gvSIG-desktop/gvSIG-desktop-2.3.1/gvSIG.sh

sin indicar el shell, ya que el propio "gvSIG.sh" indica con que shell
debe ejecutarse.

Un saludo
