Abiword is problematic in Lubuntu 12.04, but works well in 12.10 (same version, 2.9.2).
Surely this means that the problem lies in 12.04 rather than Abiword.
I can't use the scroll wheel in abiword ver 2.9.2. Evidently this is a well know problem. The advice is to downgrade to abiword ver 2.8.6.
Will I lose any functionality on downgrading?
How can I downgrade?
If it matters, I have Lubuntu 12.04 on a pendrive.
I have Abiword 2.9.2 and would like to either upgrade to 2.9.4, or downgrade so that I will have a fully functioning word processing programme.
I have found two difficulties.
1. I can download a version of Abiword form their website into Downloads, but after extracting I cannot move the file into the Office folder. It just moves back to Downloads.
