Re: WordPerfect 8 under debian

Your a gun. I figured out my problem. I onley ever seem tp search
packages.debian.org for unstable packages. There is a package with an
older libXpm(compiled againes libc5) which, once installed make netscape
calendar work without a problem. I would also be thinking wordperfect wll
be working now aswell.

Thanks for your help it is something that i have been grapling with for
about a month now....if only I had have thought to check something other
than unstable.

Thanks heaps,

Stewart James
