Question Linpus Lite on Aspire One - will I be able to load OoDraw?

I'm in the market for a netbook / cheap notebook mainly for daughters homework / browsing / messenger ec. Love the look and simplicity / effeciency of Linux, but have never tried it apart from in the shops.

One application she uses a lot is publisher, and I reckon that OO-Draw will be perfect but doesn't seem to come pre-installed on the Aspire one(the 'write' application is too much of a word processor I think). I've checked out the Aspire forums and website but couldn't see anything useful. Can it be added / loaded to Linpus Lite? and how would I go about this?

Aplogies if this is the incorrect forum, thanks for your time.

if you look on then find the section on gettinginto advanced mode

this leaves you will an xfce menu on right click. from there you can get to the pakage manager (i forget what linplus uses, but its based on yum) install oodraw, and you are siling...

adding it to the quick launcher is the hard part, but i cant remember how to do that with linplus as i now have xubuntu on my AAone
on a side note OOdraw is more for making images of the autoshape type,
writer is anolgouss to word in M$office if you want somothing like publisher try scribus
