Ted and GTK2
I've always thought that Ted was quite a good
wordprocessor: it is fast and its handling of the RTF
format is almost perfect. However, many users (rightly)
complain that Ted, which is Motif-based, looks odd on a
modern desktop. There are good news for them: as of
version 2.16, you can successfully compile Ted with
GTK2. It looks much better now!
Ted on glibc 2.2.4 (RedHat 7.2)
The program Ted is linked statically. Glibc 2.2.4 have new locales format.There is (http://www.penguin.cz/~martinmv/Tedglibc224.tar.bz2) package with old locales.
printing ISO Latin2 characters
There are scripts for printing ISO Latin 2 characters (derived from ogonkify) and for correctly set "codepage" command in some rtf files.
Re: "X Windows"? Oh please..
Oh ,come on, is that really so important?
This (at first glance) is a really good piece of software!
I just got and installed Ted because a collegue of mine had this 24MB-RTF file that crashed her Word for Windows.
It also crashed Star Office, maxwell and Hancom Word.
But it displayd most beautifully with Ted, with all the horrible graphics & tables etc. And rather fast, too!
I must say, I am very impressed. Thank you for this remarkable work. I really look forward to explore Ted further. :-))
"X Windows"? Oh please..
