Re: Wordperfect Suite 8 for Linux
I have the free download wordperfect 8. I unwrapped the tarball into
/usr/local/wp8 or something like that, and made a simlink to the
ultimate executable. It's been a long time . . .
I remember I had to install a few libraries... xpm4.7, xpm4g, and one
more I believe. At www.corel.com they used to have a big linux session
with a mailing list. I poked around in the mailing list archives to
find this out.
Someone said to create this little script to launch it and it worked:
Hope that helps.
