Calamus Software for Linux?

Hi, Calamus is a PAO software with mostly dates from the 8-bits computers. Ferran Soley's web site mentioned that Calamus would be available.

Have you maybe ever heard of a release, - maybe opensource, for Linux of this software?

Another Tux

I have never heard of Calamus before although I remember using Atari 800XL, Thomson MO5 and Amstrad CPC 8-bit computers and knowing some people with MSX and ZX81 computers. The news seems to be 10 years old, and I would
like to know what advantage you would expect from using that program instead of Scribus or LaTeX with LyX.
If you need to rescue some old documents, maybe you could run Calamus on a CP/M emulator such as YAZE or
an Apple II emulator such as Basilisk since a professional program would have been available on these
2 platforms.

calamus on linux

Hi sorry for the long time-lap.
Calamus runs on Linux with wine, you need to "tune" memory, resolution, and appearance by hand in the register (the starting preferences dialog does not work on linux). No direct printing (a PDF or PS export module needed).
Ask any question you have about Calamus on Linux. Hard learning curve if you're new at it, Scribus is very good, but too "quarklike style" for my taste.
