Abiword 2.6.3 repo

Postby danbuter on Tue Jun 10, 2008 12:01 pm

I'm kinda surprised Linux Mint 5.0 does not have the new Abiword. There is a repo set up for it for those who want it. Maybe it can be added, or put into the Mint repo? See here for how to get the new Abiword: http://abisource.com/wiki/Install_on_Ubuntu . On Mint, I had to edit the Source.list. Synaptic would not add the repo correctly, even though it did on Hardy.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This is a choice...
You can only get so much on a CD...

I'm not suggesting putting it on the CD. I'm suggesting updating the Linux Mint repos to include the newest version of Abiword, instead of relying on the very out-of-date, unsupported version that is included with Hardy Heron.

This sounds like something that could be added into our community repository.
