I need a publishing program on my computer. I type in Scribus in Software
mgmt K menu, a list of about 5 things pops up but none will let me download.
"Apply" is not clickable. Various versions 1.3.5, 188.8.131.52 for example. Each
one is different. I do not know what to put in some of the boxes that go
with this e mail such as 32 bit or whatever so I left them as they were.
Went to Scribus site and downloaded: 184.108.40.206.tar.bz2. Put it on desktop,
extracted. It created a destination folder on desktop. Double clicked and
there are a million folders with a million files inside of each.
Read on your Wiki not to try to use the aforementioned version with Ubuntu or
Kbuntu. I thought you could uninstall if it even got installed at all.
Cannot find it in the Uninstall option so I can get rid of it.
My son is a Linux programmer but he is not available to me at this time and
won't be for awhile to come. I am a Windows XP Home Edition user but now
have a partition of Windows XP Pro 64x which means I can't even install my
old MS Office Small Business in order to get Publisher. I even tried to
download MS Office in Linux since Linux actually took my old Adobe PhotoShop
download disk just fine. But the SB opens up a whole bunch of folders and I
do not know what to choose.
I desperately need a good publishing program. Open Office is kind of a piece
of junk in my humble opinion. I also think Linux is for ppl who like to find
and fix bugs, it's not for me but I have no choice. Thanks for reading,
