Description Ed McKenzie 2001-07-15 16:52:49 UTC
RH's KDE install comes with KWord, but the default GNOME setup doesn't
install any word processor at all.  I think this is a bug.  AbiWord is no
less mature than KWord, and I'd argue it's alot more stable and functional.
 Missing mime-types for (abw|rtf|doc) in gnome-vfs is also a bug, IMO.

Dave, do you want to do this or not?

Comment 2 David Mason 2001-07-19 17:40:54 UTC
yep - I'll get it in there

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-22 21:43:17 UTC
I believe the remaining issue would be to add abiword to the comps file, 
it seems to be in the distribution.

Comment 4 Ed McKenzie 2001-07-22 22:02:23 UTC
Installing AbiWord using the custom install is painless.  Associating
.(doc|rtf|abw) files with AbiWord using the file association control panel is
much more of a pain; IMO that dialog has some bugs and/or usability issues, but
that's another story altogether.

Perhaps this bug should have been filed against gnome-vfs.

added to default install
