In any case I'd be happy to test out this v2.7.8 release for Mac so I 
could eventually throw away Mariner Write and Nisus, but exactly where 
on the Abiworld page do I get it?

With Peace,

Given the help from the Mac community (ie ZERO) I find any comment
regarding the quality of the port to be offensive. And I'll stop here
because I might become offensive if I said right here what I wanted to say.
Had you paid money for it, you'd be entitled to it

There is no  binary for anything else than what's already out there.

There might be PowerPC binary coming soon when I fix two major problems
I have on my list.

Can't install dictionary


I don't know how to install a plugin. I downloaded the dictionary and 
executed it. This put a folder in my Program Files\Abisuite2  folder. 
This new folder contains two files: american.hash and 
ispell_dictionary_list.xml. Then I went to C:\Program 
Files->AbiWord->Tools->Plugins->Install new plugin. I navigated to the 
american.hash file and attempted to install it. I got an error message 
that said;

        american.hash is not a valid Windows image. Please check this
        against your installation diskette.

I obviously don't know how the plugin function works. Please help.

I'm using Windows XP and have AbiWord 2.6.8. I downloaded the program 
from the web after searching for in with Google.

Thank you.

Word Perfect


I have AbiWord v2.6.8. I cannot open ANY ".wpd" files. Do I need a plugin for the program to recognize Word
Perfect text files? Thanks.

Re: Word Perfect


Yes, you need to install a plugin to do that.

It handled by a plugin. On Linux it should be either installed by
default or by the plugin package depending on the distribution.

So long.

Seriously if you think that this will solve your problem, then be my
guest. I just seem to think everything is due to you. You know in that
case it is more about honey to catch flies.

Actually I couldn't care less whether they (or you) contribute or not.
What I care is that some people seems to believe being offensive towards
the work of people who provide *for free* a service is the best way to
thank them instead of actually helping. The fact that no significant
work has been put into the Mac version in the last 3 years is not
foreign to that.

Oh and as a last point, if I ever wanted to get thanked, I'd actually
charge for the software I write, and of course remove the freedom
associated to it. And at that point, you could feel entitled to say
whatever please.

Asio 1.4.1 and AbiWord 2.7.8


I am trying to compile AbiWord 2.7.8 against Asio 1.4.1 on Linux
(specifically, Unity Linux, which is real close to Mandriva). I have
build versions of AbiWord up to 2.6.8 against Asio 1.2.0 with no
problem. However, AbiWord 2.7.8 says it can't find asio.hpp, even
though it's in the same place as version 1.2.0, /usr/include/asio.hpp.
I checked the permissions on asio.hpp and it's set at 644. It's rather
befuddling to me that it says it can't find asio when it's right
there. Or is it maybe looking for certain functions within asio?

May I ask what version of Asio the AbiWord developers are using?
