Softmaker for 64 bit Linux

Post by theTechnaddict » Fri Aug 26, 2011 1:16 pm

Hiys - I have a number of people in our small education charity, who are fed up with LibreOffice - but I can't install SoftMaker 2008 because the deb files are for a 32 bit architechture....

Is there a way of installing (any version) on a 64 bit architechture?

Thanks for your superfast reponse.

I have not been able to find a 64 .deb for 2008 - there does appear to be one for 2010 - although I take the point that it is a 32 bit compilation with the required 32 bit libraries.

From the command line I've navigated to the download folder and issues the folloing:

$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all softmaker-office-2008_i386.deb

It appears to have worked so far - though it is ugly as sin.

You can at least switch to a different font and font size for the dialog boxes by editing your tm08config.ini file. Add this:

[tm]
DlgFont=Sans-PS
DlgFontSize=14

Then start playing with the font name and the size until you are satisfied.
