Description of problem:
RedHat Linux 7.2 has kontour in koffice-1.1-5
RedHat Linux 8.0 has kontour in koffice-1.2-0.rc1.4
When I try to open a .kil file that was created with kontour on my RH7.2
machine, it thinks about it for a while and then decides it cannot open the file
One possible work around would to convert the kontour file to kivio.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kontour 1.2 RC1
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Save the file in the URL http://trio.cfr.washington.edu/~jeffs/FCCS_DFD4b.kil
3.Wait about 10 seconds on a 300 MHz machine
Actual Results: Could not open file: /home/jeffs/FCCS_DFD4b.kil
Expected Results: You should see something like
http://www.koffice.org/faq/index.phtml#AEN614 says that "Kontour (formerly known
as KIllustrator which had to be changed due to legal reasons) used to be a
vector drawing program similar to Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. This program
is not being actively maintained anymore. The Karbon14 vector drawing
application has taken its place."
Furthermore, "There is a filter in the works which will allow to open old
Kontour files in Karbon14, so you can then save them in the new Karbon14 format.
This filter is not yet complete but you can already find a version in
I guess I have to find the filter, huh.
