Thread: Can anyone recommend a word processing program?

  1. #1

    Default Can anyone recommend a word processing program?

    Hi, alright yeah I know there is openoffice but writer works horribly for me cause of this bug:

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=392611

    as long as I user writer my entire desktop goes black and flickers amazingly it only happens with writer and not other openoffice programs and I need the word processor a lot so can someone recommend another one as good as writer at least.

    Thanks!

    alrigh so abiword is gtk and I have a feeling it may not work well either and I can't install koffice cause of dependency issues with kde 4.1 beta so anything else or should I give abiword a try?

    You might also consider the LYX Document Processor. It is an officially supported openSUSE package.

    beyond a mere wordprocessor ThinkFree is also a great product and has pretty good Mickeysoft integration if that is important.

    Thinkfree Boundless

    it is not the easiest to install but as far as I know no GTK dependencies and looks slick as well. The only downside (which one can appreciate too if one os mobile) is that I believe the free version stores the documents in an online folder.

    OOo 3 will be so much better anyway. I am running the beta on Arch and it is looking great, well not looking visually because it still has this win95 look to it but at least it has native OOXML support (jay!). it is still GTK though.
