I finally installed slacko-based distribution. Simplify the frugal install setup, so it all works. Still wonder why the full installation to freeze my computer completely?
Well, the main thing that is currently operating. Smile

Subject description: Libre office and OOo and office suites windows version ( JRE
 

"Abiword is included for posterity and will be unceremoniously dumped by me as quick as 5.7 is out. I hate it. In saying all that, Abiword is just fine for typing letters to Nan, opening (read only) most MS documents and very basic stuff" Abiword is so light, and typing letters fullfill the needs of 90% of users. Please don't remove it.
Non Linuxian people would'nt know how to load it. LIbre office and OOo, no need to change from Windows as these suites are available too in Windows version.
You hate it, we like it.
4MB vs 150MB !
I would like download Slacko 5.7 with virtual machine, avidemux openshot but without suite office (i am retired now and office is not my pleasure, only some notes and letters from time to time) 500 MB is too big.

With regard to Abiword (I imagine this has been discussed before!) what about Ted as a built-in alternative?

http://www.nllgg.nl/Ted/

It's pretty light, reads .rtf, has optional plug-ins (eg spell-checking) and I've always found it reliable and responsive - for example it handles a 20mb document including lots of images far better than LibreOffice or Abiword. Shame it doesn't handle .svg Sad

PostPosted: Mon 13 Oct 2014, 06:38    Post subject: Swiss language support  

From my mail:

Oct. 12, 2014

I should like to invite you, to make installation of SLACKO for
Switzerland more comfortable.

You recommend to use DE_CH for Swiss German keyboard layout. That does not work at all. It jumps to "de".

In " /etc/X11/xorg.conf" under "Xkb Layout" I find "de"
"de" must be changed to "ch,ch" and puppy works after restart
correctly with Swiss-German keyboard.

It would be helpful if you would introduce that in language setup menu.

cheers

Martin
