Thank you Robert,

but the wierd thing is that this is in the output:

FindFileInPath() : trying /usr/local/lib/osgPlugins-2.6.0/osgdb_qt.so ...
FindFileInPath() : USING /usr/local/lib/osgPlugins-2.6.0/osgdb_qt.so
Opened DynamicLibrary osgPlugins-2.6.0/osgdb_qt.so
Warning: Could not find plugin to read objects from file "wood.png".
wood.png'.

I'll have to dig more on this and report back. I've tried so many different
ways now that It might be a better route to uninstall and install anew...
