Hi Franz You might want to take a look at the mswordview package. The mswordview program will convert an MSWord document to an HTML page. Another package (that I use) is catdoc. Catdoc includes a program called wordview that displays MSWord files sans formatting. Catdoc can also handle some Excell file types. Catdoc will (optionally) install itself as a MIME.type to allow mail programs such as mutt to view MSWord documents. I don't know about KMail but suspect that it handles the mime system too. > Im just facing a rather "unnatural" problem: My mom uses Linux and KDE for > several weeks now aside Windows (same HDD!) - and she's really satisfied.
