Hello, I don't want either LibreOffice or Abiword on one of my Ubuntu (12.04) boxes. When I try to uninstall LibreOffice then apt-get automatically installs Abiword. Of course, Synaptic and Aptitude do the same, while dpkg simply refuses to remove several core LibreOffice packages because of certain ridiculous dependencies based off Gnome. This just doesn't seem right.
I hope this is an appropriate question for the forum. I am having trouble getting Abiword to run on Slackware 14.1. I have tried a slackware build script, and when that didn't work out, I tried compiling both Abiword 2.8.6 and 3.0.0 from scratch. "./configure" yielded a long list of dependencies. I've never had this much trouble getting Abiword to run on Slackware.
This bug in abiword 2.9.2 is very annoying especially if you have a laptop and want to use touchpad for scrolling pages. That's why I would like to know is downgrading abiword to 2.8.6 version even possible or will it cause total #crunchbang to my system?
So i'm still without an internet connection but had to reinstall my Fedora.
Luckily i have a local repo created from the F17 Install DvD, as well as a reposync'd updates i was able to obtian during a stay at a friend.
Either way, i prefer abiword and gnumeric over libreoffice-writer/*-calc, but i cannot find abiword in my local repos, allthough some python 'scripts' for abiword seem t
