Running Abiword on Slackware 14.1


I hope this is an appropriate question for the forum. I am having trouble getting Abiword to run on Slackware 14.1. I have tried a slackware build script, and when that didn't work out, I tried compiling both Abiword 2.8.6 and 3.0.0 from scratch. "./configure" yielded a long list of dependencies. I've never had this much trouble getting Abiword to run on Slackware. Anyone had any luck?

Thank you

Have you tried the slackbuild?

Don't forget to install the dependencies as well. It looks like there's one dependency for this.

I have successfully built the Slackbuilds for Abiword 3.0.0. I'm using 14.1 32 bit. Everything seems to work. Had no difficulties at all.

Thanks very much

I tried the script from that you suggested, and it worked just fine. I have Abiword up and running.

Thanks for your help!
