Newbie here so please be gentle and not too technical.
Got Slitaz 4 Stable Core on a USB and its works brilliantly with persistence, very fast, absolutely love it.
But I cannot get a word processing package to work or install which effectively makes Slitaz worthless, let me explain.
Used Abiword in the past in Xubuntu, found it adequate if you accept the odd compatibility issue. But in Slitaz documents look nothing like the original, some are just a single line of text instead of several pages. The address headers are all on a single line and any paragraph spaces disappear even on the best documents. Did a Google, saw the comment about "glibc-locale" checked and it was already installed, reinstalled but no difference, still gibberish.
Decided to install LibreOffice, used the "get-install get-LibreOffice" in terminal and it downloaded whatever it does. Then "get-LibreOffice" and it downloaded LibreOffice but failed on extraction and eventually froze up checking the md5sum.
Am I doing something wrong or is there a cure for this? Without a working word processor Slitaz is of no use to me even if is it quick.
The laptop is a 10 year old Dell Inspiron, P4M 1700 processor, 20gb hard drive and 512mb ram.
