Thanks for this. I've been looking for something better than Abiword yet not as huge as Open Office.

Looks good

but I'm having trouble validating. I used the validation details emailed to me when I downloaded the full package at their website but they dont seem to work on the puppy version.

*******
Cancel that - - I'm being stupid - the first number I got was for windows version - went back and got linux one and all fine!
********
I'm glad about this. Abiword cant cope with long documents of 60 or more pages on my eee - I sometimes need to look over these for work OO is fine I hope this does the job.

I used this a bit more today and found out it can't handle stuff saved in abiword's native format. I don't know if that matters to anyone, but I thought I would mention it.

and if that happens just open it in abiword then save it as rtf or doc and then open it in SO 2008.

Good - Textmaker is able to handle a large 0.5mb doc file very well some of the tables have an unwanted black line going down them but other than that the document loads quickly and looks fine.

Abiword - just dies - it does a very poor job of bringing up the first page but with text boxes in the wrong places - after that nothing.

So if you need to access larger more complex files this looks really good. a very interesting alternative to open office - lets see what the company thinks about this but it must be good for them - I'd never heard of them before.

I get an error when I try to install. I'm running MacPup (based on 4.3.1) and I get a .pet file of just under 4mb when I download from tuuxx - is this correct? When I click on it the Pkg Mgr launches and asks if I want to install - I click Yes and then I get an error. No real details in the msg - just 'Error - cannot install'.

Any ideas what's going on? I'd love to use Softmaker Office on Puppy.

I will need a license or I need to shut down the link.

Any suggestions?

Eric,

I think that until Softmaker get back to us, you have no choice but to block the link...I don't think we will hear from them till after New Year.

Hi Guy,
I will let it go for a bit longer....but not too much longer and then it's deleted off the server.

TY,
Eric

Hi eric, I didn't provide a key with it, so mirroring should be ok, if people don't have a key then they can't use it, or is mirroring against the rules also? I'm not sure, really it should be gpl.

Hi Jeff,

Nope..not ok...the web site is clear with the license.

I need an ok from SMO or be gone...nothing less.

But, it is a good office program and I hope we can keep it for Puppy.
Eric

PS..docx is needed to be useful for my needs..like 2010 version

Try for a license..then get the. docx as in the new release.

I need to shut this off...there are many more files that are on puppylinux.ca and I need to protect them...you understand.
