I don't know if you managed to get it working, but I thought I would post my "startdelphi" contents...
I am using Mandrake 10.1, but that should not make any difference. I am not sure if the export before the source / command is necessary.
# BEGIN STRING TABLE
LC_ALL_IS_C1="The LC_ALL environment variable is set to C. Kylix cannot start with this setting."
LC_ALL_IS_C2="Defaulting LC_ALL to"
# END STRING TABLE
if [ -z "$LANG" ]; then
if [ "$LC_ALL" = "C" ]; then
echo "$LC_ALL_IS_C2 $KYDEF_LOCALE."
source /home/dominique/kylix3/bin/kylixpath /home/dominique/kylix3 >/dev/null
Anyway I hope this helps somehow,
