It's good to know advantages in using the Gnome version of
Abiword. Thanks for the examples above.
It's possible I, & maybe other 'GTK-only types', too, are such because we've
had problems that were too much in our trying to get libgal.so dependencies
solved & install Abiword's Gnome version. So, settling for the best I could
manage, I ~ & maybe other 'G .... types', installed and run the GTK version
of Abiword. It may seem 'GTK-only types' "don't ... want all the extra
goodness you get from the Gnome platfrom (sic)" but 'it ain't necessarily
so.' It wasn't with me. I simply found hours of fruitless efforts with
libgal.so 12/17/ ?? too much to add to even though I did solve a few
problems. The lot I could not ~ & maybe others couldn't, either.
Best wishes for the Year of the Horse (now seven days begun!)
P.S. Of course, libgal.so problems don't defeat the team producing Abiword
can they defeat others.
