Fedora :: Abiword Program Window / Set To Maximsed?
Jul 25, 2011
I suppose this is a Gnome 3-specific question as with Ubuntu 10.04 I had a way of getting the word processor AbiWord to open larger than it does in Fedora 15. True enough it's not a great loss, the extra two seconds it takes to manually maximise the window, but as other programs open how you last had them I'm wondering if I can alter things for Abiword.
Click on scrollbar. Drag down. Watch text crawl by in fits and starts. Don't even think about using the scroll wheel. And this, on a one page RTF document. With no special characters or images or anything.
I tried the instruction here: [URL] It did nothing. How can I make Abiword usable? It doesn't have to be lightning fast, all I want is for it to scroll at the same speed and with the same responsiveness as all my other applications.
I have a diction(english-bulgarian-english) program which have only windows version and I installed it in my slackware trough wine. The problem is that I can't write a word in bulgarian into it. When in english layout i can write, but when change to bulgarian i can't. I click in the field for the words but just can't.Can be the problem from my system locale, because some programs in bulgarian can't be translated and I see symbols. Help
It drives me craxzy, and I can't find anything I can do about it.When I start a new app--say FireFox, and I return to the window I was in, as soon as each window loads it insists that IT should become the active window.This is a general issue with me--all window type OS's seem to do this, but what I want (and THAT is supposed to be what the computer will do 4 me--what I want!No matter what, I want the active window to remain the active window regardless of what other windows are doing--including newly opening windows. If I want to do something with a new window, I'll go there on my own.I'm often writing and want to research something so will open a browser window, but it takes time for the programs to load & during that time I usually want to continue with whatever I was doing until I finish the thought. As is, I'm reading or typing along, and suddenly the machine pops me into the newly opened window--a real pain,
Of course, if I could tell it to either become active or not depending upon how I call the program, or which program or which program is active, that would be perfect.I'm not sure where the fix might be, but since it's a desktop intee problem, I'm posting it hereBaring a solution, any suggestions as to where that kind of action originates
i accidently got rid of the panel on top, so i deleted the bottom one, and started a new one on the bottom. now whenever i open a program, there used to be a "list" of all the open program/windows on the bottom, now that is goneso once i minimize a program, the only way for me to get back to it is to press alt+tab.
I tried Docky and then uninstalled it. Then got a notification on a missing library item asking if I wanted to delete association. Now I have no open program tabs on my panel. So how do I get them back? And are there other program window management programs that might be of interest? If it matters, I'm using Ubuntu Studio.
Can't I forward a program window from my laptop to my desktop securely, both running Linux?How to ssh -X an existing window program just like the 'screen' program does?This question came up with my friends when watching an episode of 24! "Almeida send me your screen"
I've just moved all my machines from Ubuntu to Squeeze and am currently trying to remove Open Office. When marking for removal and uninstalling OO the package manager requires that AbiWord and associated suite of office apps be installed as a replacement. I would like to completely purge both as I have little to no need for them, and the little I do use a word processor for I tend to use cloud based solutions. Is there a way to resolve the dependency that seems to exist that requires one or the other to be on the system at any given time?
Is there some way top stop the "blind effect" of compiz so that when you double click the top title bar of a window that it maximizes the window instead of the rolling up type effect? Also when i place my mouse on the top right of the screen it brings it to a choosing window type mode where you can pick which window you would like to open, is it possible to get this on the top left of the screen instead? Lastly when I use Kdebluetooth4 to send a file to my computer where does that file save to?
Abiword is splitting words at the end of sentences. If I go to the end of the line and nudge the word, it will wrap but I get an extra space. I can usually delete the space. Sometime, the word will wrap correctly if I continue typing but this is not the typical case.
I know this is not a problem with OpenOffice but I don't want to install 70MB of program just to get a simple word processor.
Is it possible to drag and drop the icons you want from the standard and formatting toolbars onto just one toolbar? then I can claim some more vertical space?What do most people here use on ubuntu? Abiword or Writer?
After upgrading I also updated abiword and wv from slackbuilds.It complains it can't find libwv-1.2.so.3, although libwv-1.2.so.4 exists.Making a symbolic link gets it to start, although then it complains about libpng and hwile it starts the toolbar icons are not displayed, instead with red X's in their place.What is needed to get abiword easily working on 13.1?
I have installed Xubuntu in English on an older laptop and it works beautifully. Xfce offers Abiword as word processor with an English dictionary. Owing to fact that I live in Europe I require further dictionaries in particular German.
I have tried, and I think succeeded installing this font. Geneva Font It seems to work and scale fine in AbiWord and and OOwriter, but it does not display in firefox, it is horrible. The above link shows a sample which is really very bad at all levels of zoom. This site (I think this is the same problem) is also terrible, until I zoom to a very large size, when it smooths out. GNF - Gambling Network Forums I have set the firefox smoothing to 0, so it is not that. (browser.display.auto_quality_min_font_size;0) Here are screenies, if your browser shows the pages OK: The last one is magnified in an image editor. But here it is, zoomed with Firefox [ctrl + +], it goes smooth at a certain level of zoom. Here it is magnified:
