AbiWord-2.4.4 and Gnumeric-1.3.93 for Slackware-10.2

I've just finished uploading the latest AbiWord and a rercent Gnumeric vesrion to my site. These use most of the GNOME-COMPAT packages. Abiword needs libole2 and fribidi and gnumeric needs libgsf in addition to the other stuff that's there.

There may be issues with print-preview working for these if you have no printer online. I'd appreciate it if someone who has a working printer could check them and see what happens. This has to do with a known issue in libgnomecups -it sends an error message if no printer is online, but print-preview features use libgnomecups.
Print preview appears to work with AbiWord, but not with gnumeric -this may be missing pxelibs...

Help test please, cause I don't use these programs enought to always know when everything is running normally.

You can find the packages here:
