Question Is there a GNU replacement for Micro Junk's Publisher.

As much as I have grown to despise Micro Junk. I do miss this one proggie. Can't figure out how to print out business and greeting cards. I also can't seem to find a GNU replacement for Micro Junk Publisher. (2002 was pretty good) Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If memory serves me correctly, M$ Publisher is a basic-level layout design program, right?

If that is the case, you may want to check out StarOffice or OpenOffice... I think I saw something like that there... Also checking out KOffice may prove fruitful.

Good luck!

Yep. KOffice is a frame-based word processor which makes it suitable for desktop publishing. Now, you won't get real fancy, so you may want to go with one of the LaTeX based packages, such as Lyx , which is a document processor.
