How to install koffice 1.6.3 on slackware 13.1?

hi guys, i hope you can help me giving some guide of how can i install koffice 1.6.3 on slackware 13.1, i tried koffice 2.2 believing that it already had the "save as m$" option, but it doesnt have that option yet.
so i tried to install the old good 1.6.3, installed the kde3libs, qt3 and other packages, but when i tried to compile koffice it said it needed qt < 4 so... is there a way to actually install it?

Do configure --help
there is probably an option to set the Qt path or at least the lib path.

KOffice2 is not ready, distributions are still advised by the developers not to ship it as the default version, but they do it anyway... 1.5 was the first stable version of KOffice (for me), look like 2.5 will be too, but it's far away, even if the current 2.3-alpha-alpha start to open some documents well.

Wasn't there an application called qtconfig? Similar in function to gtk-config it returned the paths of various compiler flags. If so make sure qt4 didn't overwrite it

See where the libraries get installed to. You may need to update the /etc/profile path statement.


install, kde4, koffice, kword, slackware
