According to Symantic, I have installed a batch of Java 188.8.131.52-2pclos2010, and a batch of java 184.108.40.206pclos2012. I have no idea what LibreOffice uses, or why both these sets of java files are installed, but I wouldn't dare change them.On 04/14/2012 01:15 PM, Doug wrote:On 04/14/2012 05:27 AM, e-letter wrote:On 13/04/2012, Doug<firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:I just modified a previous letter, which was a previously sent FAX, and went to save the modified version, which had a fair amount of work in it. When I said "save" I got a fast-disappearing message, something about java, and the whole document disappeared. I have since discovered that the document can be "recovered," altho I didn't know it at the time, so I typed it over again using WordPerfect in Windows. I really don't like your program much, but it's almost the only game in town on Linux, and this behavior does not make me any fonder of it! (The other options are worse.)Maybe the mistake was to send this fax document before saving it? Anyway, since java functionality seems to be the cause, java may be the partial/primary cause of the document crash. Also, could be a m$ problem, assuming the document was first created within m$. Tried abiword, or enscript?I saved and sent the original. I had to make a modification and send the mod. No Microsoft product involved. I do not even own a M/S word processor. I have tried abiword, and it is terrible. I haven't heard of enscript, and I will look into it. I sure wish there was a new version of WordPerfect for Linux--the original from 1995 won't load. (Unlike many Linuxers, I am not averse to paying for a product that does the job I need and does it better than the "home-grown" product.) --dougWhat version of Java are you using?
If someone reading this thinks there should be something else, I will forward
the message on to the devs at pclos and see what they say. --doug -- Blessed are the peacekeepers...for they shall be shot at from both sides. --A.M.
