Hello, an update.

I have now had time to try booting from the 4.3.1 CD with "pfix=ram" and installing Abiword and Libgoffice. This time it works well so it looks as though something left over from the 4.1.1 install is blocking it.

If people with more know-how than me agree I will have to do an "erase and replace" install of 4.3.1 and redo my custom settings manually.

Still any comments welcome.

Will

If redoing your "custom settings" is a significant task, since your problem is presumably caused by having an updated library which is broken/incompatible, have a look through your save file and you can probably manually clean out whatever is causing the problem.
e.g. go into /initrd/pup_rw/usr/lib/ and delete libgoffice-0.8.so.8 and its dependencies, then install it again.

Success Very Happy


A new full install (using "Wipe" rather than "Update" in the Puppy installer) has done the trick. Installed Abiword and the goffice lib and it works fine - thanks to technosaurus for the compiling efforts.

Thanks again to all for their help.

Hi techno, Just a quick question about this application and whether files created in abiword are readable in Microsoft office 2007?

Hello stiginge

A very non technical answer.

I sometimes need to distribute documents around a local charity committee some (most?) of whom I expect will be using MS Office of one version or another and have never had any complaints about things being unreadable after saving in Abiword using the option of "Microsoft Word .doc" as the file format. I'm not using a Puppy system ATM so I can't check the exact wording from the Abiword menu but it is something like that.

Someone with a propper explanation will probably be along soon but I hope thats some help.

Will

Sub_title: Abiword can do it
 

I want to do files for my Puppies. I chose Abiword instead of Gnumeric. Here is the result. Not bad, right ?
Of course, we must take the time to do it.

Perhaps 2.8.2 is the best.
2.8.6 must be considered as the las stable version until 3.0.0 prooves that the bugs of beta version 2.9 have gone.
