do you mean this:
is there a particual reason you have to use Ability, i mean there are exellent programs that are linux native, like OpenOffice, Abiword, etc..
This Ability Office seems to use Wine, which is a Windows emulator,
I never used Ability Office, so i donīt know much about it.
Do you have Wine installed?
Try this command: abwrite #maybe it works, who knows?
