Subject description: Abiword 2.7.2 for small screens (netbooks, etc...) & 2.7.6 testing
 

These are the most recent development releases of abiword. I compiled it with options that minimize the screen real estate used specifically for our netbook & umpc users or others with smaller screens

I have uploaded an "embedded" version to http://puppylinux.asia/members/T/

The last version that would compile embedded is
http://puppylinux.asia/members/T/486_pet/abiword-2.7.2-i486.pet

compiled with puppy 4.2.1 using the following configure options
./configure --enable-menubutton --enable-embedded=generic -enable-builtin-plugins --prefix=/usr --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu

Here is the sfs
http://puppylinux.asia/members/T/apps_sfs/abiword-2.7.2-i486_421.sfs
(down until july?)
login&password is puppy&linux

also the most recent versions are here as pet or sfs:
http://pupweb.org/desktop/abiword_cut-2.7.5-i486.pet
http://pupweb.org/desktop/abiword_cut-2.7.5-i486_421.sfs
http://pupweb.org/desktop/abiword_cut-2.7.5-i486_421.sfs-md5.txt

A very nice addition, but I can't download it. I put puppy/linux, but I'm told it's forbidden.

fixed - I uploaded the sfs last and it timed out before I changed permissions

There are quite a few issues with this release due to Puppy's version of gtk+ ... I will compile it again for Upup (woof alpha 9) to see if this fixes things (it freezes up on some menu options... running from command line almost always references a gtk+ failure of some kind)

Thanks, I'm downloading it now. I'm running 4.1.2 on an eee 900 and will let you know how it goes.

i apologize for the delay. I've just started playing around with this sfs. I get it to load okay, but whichever abiword icon I click, I keep bringing up 4.1.2's stock abiword 2.6.3.

How do I actually start this version?

I downloaded the pet package to check it out and noticed you didn't strip your bins or remove the locales, one bin alone went down 1MB in size, the end result with all English's inc, was almost 2MB compressed smaller. 4653kb pet
other than that really cool, great job Smile

Ps still has that xorg font issue, Man I wish abiword would wake up to that, the later 2.6 series also has that issue where it doesn't handle xorg fonts, its all the fonts located in /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc
nolonger work in Abiword from about 2.66 onward.

Thanks for the font fix ttuuxxx, I did make a stripped version but after having a couple of freeze-ups I decided not to distribute a testing version without debugging symbols so that maybe we can better make the appropriate bug reports. I actually was debating on having it run using "rxvt -e abiword" so that if you had to kill it, you would see the error messages. I would definitely not consider it ready for any release yet, but it has great potential so please support the abiword project by submitting your bug reports to abisource. http://www.abisource.com/support/bugs/

In case anyone is interested in compiling the next release, these were the configure options that I used (some of the plugins failed to build for various reasons, so I removed them...)

./configure --enable-menubutton --enable-embedded=generic -enable-builtin-plugins="applix babelfish clarisworks docbook eml freetranslation gdict gimp google hancom hrtext iscii kword latex loadbindings mif mswrite opendocument openwriter opml paint passepartout pdb pdf s5 sdw t602 urldict wikipedia wml xslfo" --prefix=/usr --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu

In case anyone is wondering why I decided to go with built-in plugins: abiword tries to load all plugins by default (can be changed in the config) and loading plugins actually required more resources and more time to load than just having them built in ... also (when stripped) the package was quite a bit smaller with builtin plugins even than with stripped plugin libs.

Ok, I am compiling 2.7.4 now - ./configure's stupid sanity check was keeping me from running it because it was just released in a timezone that made it look like I was trying to compile before it was made... I rebooted and changed the date in my bios and all is going well (slow though since I am now using default 4.2.1 with no smp)

this time I am using --disable-default-plugins as well so that it doesn't get the odf plugin twice

@ttuuxxx any idea how to get it to find the spell check stuff ??? --with-?spell=/usr/???? or enchant?? I'm not quite sure, but it seems like they may be in a non-standard location that configure does not look

get hspell and compile/install it.
get enchant and compile/install it.
get Abiword and compile compile/install it.
I think that was it, The devx doesn't have all the dev files for it. so you need to compile all the actual programs.

There were a bunch of hildon patches in 2.7.3 that broke the generic embedded build so I built the standard style build for this one ... still had to make one patch for a gtk notebook remove page error... there is a lot of room for code cleanup if anyone needs a cpp project to work on, I only know enough to be dangerous (my first attempt at a quick fix gave me no menus at all - only the icon shortcuts)

If anyone would like to test its only 2.8mb now (same config on everything else though + ttuuxxx's fix)

I think this version has great potential Smile It would be nice if in the menu settings you could switch back to the traditional desktop also, That would be real handy for puppy, then we could have say a traditional look and small pc users could tick "compact display" and it would save the setting and switch screens.

Most recent pet of this customization installs and runs great on eee 900. No more awkward alt-leftclick-windowdragging. I put it through its paces, no crashes yet.

Abiword developers still determined to do without smart quotes and em dashes, making professional manuscripts an impossibility, but the work here is amazing. Many thanks. Visually, you've created a different word processor for the netbook.
