Jarte on WINE - A Possible Alternative to AbiWord
Synopsis: Jarte 5.0 will run on WINE 1.4.1
My word-processor of choice on my Windows machines is Jarte, a free Windows program that is basically MS Wordpad on steroids.
This is a very nice, lightweight alternative to MS Word. See the Jarte web site at www.jarte.com for all the details.
In my admittedly limited testing, Jarte seems to run quite well on WINE.
I'm running Precise Puppy 5.4.93. I used green_dome's PET for WINE 1.4.1,
and the Windows installer for Jarte 5.0, which is the latest version. The only "tweaking" needed to get Jarte running was to add 3 DLLs to WINE's system32 folder; the DLLs are
which I copied out of the System32 folder on my WinXP machine.
So far the only bug I have found with Jarte on WINE on Puppy is that the "document counts" (lines, words, chars) display does not work. I have not tested printing or ".docx" support, since I have no need for those.
