[lubuntu] Trying To Update/Downgrade Abiword on a USB

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – 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. I tried changing the permissions to 0, but this did not help. I could not change the ownership. 2. I had a look at the Synaptic Manager. I have never used this. I found Abiword 2.9.2, but no other versions. I am not sure how to search for Ab (Hardware)
