Opening MS Docs with KWord - Problem
Has anybody had any problems opening MS Word files with KOffice?
Suse 9.2 KDE 3.3.2 KWord 1.3.5
I tried to open a MS Doc file (on a FAT32 drive) this morning and it came up with the obvious but not very helpful error message 'Could not open'. Tried a few different MS Doc files but all gave the same error message. Tried the files with OOO and they open fine. It doesn't seem a general KOffice problem as MS produced spreadsheets and presentations load fine.
Next I tried uninstalling KOfice and WV2 and re-installing. Same problem. As a final attempt I unistalled KOffice and re-installed the version on the Suse 9.2 DVD. Still no joy.
I think it might be something perhaps to do with a system update file as I installed KOffice on my spare P/C (with Suse 9.2 KDE 3.3 - not updated) and it worked fine reading from DOC files.
Can anyone suggest what I should try next?
