Is KOffice dead? At one time, you got KWord with MepisLite. I got used to that and liked it. It was a step up from Abiword but without bloat. Maybe now LibreOffice has become the de facto standard.

Although, if I remember correctly, debian hasn't decided to build/support the latest version (so no packages forth coming). Someone inform me if I'm wrong.

From the Debian KDE mailing lists:

Let me try to provide a little more information about this issue. As said,
there is no plan to include calligra for Wheezy so far. This is mainly due to
upstream not actually having done a final stable version release, IOW 2.4.0

Beside this, there is and has been some effort put on calligra packaging. So
far Beta 7 is packaged and as far as I can tell, working. Unfortunately,
binaries haven't been published yet.

We are considering pushing them into experimental, but this publication is
somewhat bound to upstream final release. This is not a final decision and it also
depends on uploaders available free time, since calligra is heavy weigh.

HTH, regards,

And thanks to Stevo we will be seeing the new release on Mepis real soon!

I've just finished uploading Calligra 2.4.0 for M11, which is the new Koffice, too, so watch for upgrades if you use kword, kexi, karbon, krita, etc.


Sorry, didn't mean to hijack this thread.

[Not a total hijack, I don't think]

It would be interesting to know the size difference between Calligra and LibreOffice (for deciding what an antiX disk might be able to hold).

I hear reports that Calligra is missing features that LO supports, but that the developers are planning to add them quickly. Looking into Cmake.txt in the source, it appears that I can even build packages on MEPIS 8.5's KDE 4.3 as long I use the CR's QT 4.6.3--so that's another project.

I guess it would be hard to judge overall size, since Calligra will pull in all the KDE 4 runtime libraries. The deb packages I ended up with aren't that big at all, except for the optional debugging packages.

Let me know if this might be available as a standalone .deb.

Just a comment on the original topic:

On the social network sites I frequent, I used to be the only one who touted antiX for people looking for a distro that works on old / low resource boxes.

In the past year or so, I have received thumbs up on my advocacy of antiX and recently I was not the first to recommend antiX.

anti's reputation is beginning to precede him - about time :number1:
