Debian :: Abiword And Gnumeric Not Working After Upgrading Libgoffice-0.8?

Mar 1, 2010

If you find Abiword and Gnumeric are not working after upgrading libgoffice-0.8 a quick fix is by creating the following link:

Code:

cd /usr/lib
ln -s libgoffice-0.8.so.8.0.0 libgoffice-0.8.so.7
Abiword and Gnumeric are now working as before.

I found this from the following bug-report:[URL]

Debian :: Uninstalling OO - AbiWord

Mar 14, 2011

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?

Ubuntu :: Abiword Word Wrap

May 13, 2010

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.

Fedora :: Scrolling In Abiword Is Extremely Sluggish?

Sep 26, 2010

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.

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.

OpenSUSE :: AbiWord And OOwriter But It Doesn't Display In Firefox

Feb 17, 2010

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:

Ubuntu :: Programs (Abiword) Not Staying Open On Launcher?

Jun 16, 2011

I've found that Abiword, which I prefer to Libre Office, when minimised does not remain arrowed on the launcher in 11.04, so it effectively can't be minimised. Can it be made to do this? I've clicked a few icons on the launcher like Brasero's and Synaptic's and found that they still all behave properly but I'm guessing there are other programs that have the Abiword glitch.

Ubuntu :: Advantages And Disadvantages Of OpenOffice.org Word Processor, Kword, And AbiWord?

Dec 21, 2010

I am a graduate student writing a dissertation in modern history. More than half of my computer work takes place on a word processor.I take notes, make outlines, and then write drafts of papers, chapters, presentations, etc. I regularly have to share these files with others who use operating systems other than Linux.I have just switched from OS X (after 5 years and half of using Mac) and I am still figuring out how to write my next dissertation chapter in Ubuntu.

There seems to be no consensus on what is or what are the best word processing softwares -- especially for academic writers -- in Ubuntu or Linux for that matter.I have read a number of posts on various forums and I find them either dated by several years or not dealing with the problems I am facing :

namely writing a serious, book-length academic work in the humanities and desiring to work with a user-friendly and fast word processor that would also be powerful enough to accomplish most or all academic tasks such as footnotes, style change, bibliography, accessibility, etc. There are people who suggest using LaTeX (LyX, Kile, etc.) but it seems to me that they're mostly based in the exact sciences and benefit from the math and science features that exist in LyX or another LaTeX editor. LaTeX is moreover not very accessible to those who do not know the LaTeX language or do not have an editor and work primarily with a word processor: meaning that when I share a LaTex document with my colleagues they have difficulty editing my work. See for instance this discussion which took place 5 years ago on this forum:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=98120

I wonder if those of you who are in similar fields (i.e., humanities, social sciences, law, etc.)could chip in and talk about your experience as academic writers working primarily from a Linux (specifically Ubuntu) platform. What are the word processing applications you use to write your serious papers?What are the advantages and disadvantages of OpenOffice.org Word Processor, Kword, and AbiWord? How easy or difficult is it to share your documents with others who do not use Linux? In what format/s do you share your documents? Can others easily modify and edit your texts? Do you use LaTeX at all?Opinions may vary with respect to discipline,which word processor to use for writing their articles, dissertations, or books.

My own personal experience with OpenOffice.org has not been very positive. It's pretty slow and has problems with multiple language input. Switching from Nisus Writer Pro and Mellel (both OS X softwares), OpenOffice.org Word Processor seems also not very user-friendly. It seems to follow the design of MS Word (or what MS Word used to be) and feels above all *cluttered.* I am however trying to like it as I understand there's probably no other word processor better than OpenOffice.org in Ubuntu. Am I correct to assume this? I also downloaded Kword which in terms of interface and egronomic design seems quite nice. It is also a bit faster -- although I don't know how powerful Kword is at the moment and whether it can accomplish all that my academic work requires from a word processor. I have also read somewhere that AbiWord is really not all that powerful. It is meant to be a fast but "lean" word processor which would do basic things quickly.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Suddenly Stopped Working AND Rfkill Command Not Working

Jul 13, 2011

When originally installing 11.04 I had problems getting my Ralink 5390 wireless card to work.

Today my computer froze completely and I had to turn it off via the power switch. When I turned it back on, wireless was no longer recognized! My iPod can connect to the network just fine, so it must be an Ubuntu problem. There are no problems with my ethernet connection either.

I researched this and found several threads about blocking and unblocking wireless devices using the rfkill command. Well, unfortunately for me the rfkill command doesn't work. When I type sudo rfkill list or sudo rfkill unblock all, nothing happens; it just returns me to my bash prompt. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling rfkill...nothing.

Fedora Networking :: Ping Working But Internet Not Working From Dhcp Clients

Jul 17, 2009

I have a strange problem for internet. My clients (winxp - S2) can't get internet.Let me explain my scenerios. Fedora 10 with lan (eth0) having direct internet from dsl model, client (XP service pack 2) can use samba shares using dhcp (wlan0) installed in Fedora 10 box. client can ping my linux box.Now problem is: client (dosbox) can ping the google ip address (i.e ping 74.125.39.106) but can't use 'ping www.google.com'. That means ping with ip works for internet from my client. My linux box can. I can use internet from FC10 but can't use iexplorer from my client to have internet. I have enable ipmasquarding in Firewall and dhcpd is running on wlan0 for dynamic ip address of my clients.Can someone suggest me what kind of problem having I? What should i do to success iexplorer for internet? what possibly am i missing?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel PRO 2100 Not Working - RF Killswitch Button Not Working At All?

Feb 18, 2010

I followed the sticky about setting up wireless and I have come to an issue where the WLAN switch which is on this computer can be pressed, the light comes on, but no WLAN. When I looked in dmesg, this is what I get:

ipw2100: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection
firmware: requesting ipw2100-1.3.fw
eth0: Radio is disabled by RF switch.

When running iwconfig wlan0 heres what I get:

home/j-dub # iwconfig eth0
wlan0 unassociated ESSID off/any Nickname:"ipw2100"
Mode:Managed Channel=0 Access Point: Not-Associated

[code]....

Notice it says that the 'Radio is disabled by switch' in dmesg. I can press that switch until the end of the world comes and it does absolutely nothing but make the WLAN light put on a light show. And it shows the wlan to be unassociated with any clients. So, what are my options to get this Wireless up and working?

Computer/OS info:

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M7400
1.4GHz Intel Centrino R
40GB HD
Suse 11.1 KDE

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Internet Not Working Since Update / Wless Not Working

Jun 21, 2010

I have been looking around the forums searching for similar problems, it seems not only me had this problem. About a month ago I did a regular update via Upd Manager. The next day - no wired connection.Still managable, since the local library has wireless. Now that won't work either.Just after I upgraded from Jaunty, I accidentally removed NetwMngr from the top right corner of the screen, but that should not have anything to do with how the program works, right? I now cannot reach NM, if I run it from the terminal, nothing happens visibly.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Updating NVidia Driver Not Working, Tried Manual, Not Working?

Sep 18, 2010

I installed it on a Dell Inspiron 531 with the GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 built in video card. From the recommend driver list I installed �NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended

Well, turns out it should not have been recommended. I had restarted and all I got was a low res ubuntu logo and a boot right into a full screen terminal. Tried startx and got a no screens found, I look online for about an hour last night and decided to just reinstall, which takes a couple hours when installing all the packages.

I have done more research today and found to install the latest linux x64 driver from nVidias website, which I did, but it does not run. I followed some more instructions and it said to do a �sudo chmod +x <file>� which I did, and it starts to open and I get �You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.�

I�m starting to get a little frustrated here, guess I�m just used to a lot of the ease of windows and assumed that something like installing a graphics card driver would be easy.

Nov 17, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude D530 Laptop (500 GB HDD). Installed Windows XP and then Ubuntu 10.10 to do dual boot. everything works fine in Windows XP.In Ubuntu 10.10 I had issues connecting to Internet(Through Wirelss), I was able to rectify this issue by dsiable ipv6 from firefox about:config and setting true to network.dns.disableIPv6. After this I was able to connect to internet and browse websites from Firefox.But I am having Issues with Evolution Mail(Connection Timed Out) and Google Talk Client(Connection Timed Out).Empathy Internet Messaging gets connected fine.I was wondering if I will have to disable IPv6 System wide and hence I added the following lines to /etc/sysctl.conf

#disable ipv6
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Card Working On 10.04 32bit But Not Working On 10.04 64bit!

Jul 25, 2011

I had an Ubuntu Server 32 bit installation and everything was working fine. Now that I installed Ubuntu Server 64bit on a new drive in the same machine, the ethernet card is not working!! This is insane cause when I put the hard disk with the 32bit installation back and booting from it, the ethernet card is working without any problems but in the 64bits installation it is not shown at all using "ifconfig -a"

lspci output:

Quote:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0)

How can I check which module is being loaded in the 32bits installation to try to load it manually in the 64 bits installation?
