Title: abiword and MS word docx file 's
Post by: petert on April 14, 2017, 02:04:40 AM
Hello,

I want to read en write docx file 's with abiword but sinds version 3.0 the plugins are not seperate available anymore.

Is there any solution for TC?

Bay the way
TC is a great job.

Regards Peter.

As per the abiword site, the plugins are no longer shipped separately, but are part of the main package - did you try to open or save a file in the docx format?

Doc is no problem. (there is a plugin for that insite)
But Docx will open with a lot unreadeble stuff extra.

I did a compile from the source-code but don 't work.

I am looking for de last MS Word plugin.

I'll try to have a look tomorrow - in the meantime you could try the corepure64 8.x abiword

Thanks a lot,
But I am using a very old 32bits computer. I forgot to tell. sorry
Is it possible to do it for the x86 too. I think I can not use the 64 bits. Or can I do it my self?

Regards Peter

FWIW, years ago, back when Wine was available in Core, I was able to install MS Office 2007 on my portable TinyCore on USB.
If you can get Wine working for current TC, and you own the mandatory license, you should be able to do the same: a portable MS Office on USB ;-)

Thanks for the tip, but the old tiny laptop have 256mb memoryspace and is not upgradeble (pc100 memory).
So all will be small in size. The fun for me is a machine, 15 years old working with program 's of 2017.
Abiword is working now.
