Several typos in Abiword-3.0.0
|Reported by:||Arthur Radley||Owned by:||Pierre Labastie|
The patch command needs ../ prepended to the patch file name.
The incorrect version number "-2.9" appears in the configuration commands, Contents, and Short Descriptions. I checked my timestamp package log. All of those instances of "-2.9" should be replaced with "-3.0".
P.S. and off-topic: Abiword is not so good any more as installed by the book (for me, anyway). It's appearance is degraded. The page rulers are graphically crude, flash, disappear, re-appear. And so on. This happened last time with v2.9.4, GTK-+3, and GOffice.0.10.0. I regained control of that version by using --with-gtk2 for Abiword and going back to GOffice-0.8.17 (which is no longer in the book). Anyway, I use LibreOffice too, of course, but I still like Abiword for some reason. I will fiddle with this version some until I get tired of it. Just FYI.

Okay. FYI, I installed Abiword-3.0.0 several times trying various combinations of configure options. I have GTK+-2 and GTK+-3 installed because each is required by other things I install. The situation remains as above with me having to install Abiword using the --with-gtk2 --without-goffice configure options and without GOffice installed. One thing or another goes wrong during or after installation with any other thing I tried and with or without GOffice installed. I also learned that Abiword positively requires librsvg to install. I have no idea what any of this means for you and the book (probably nothing). Anyway, at least fix the typos mentioned originally. So long.

typos fixed at r12867. If there are build issues, please open a new ticket.
I just installed Abiword-3.0.0 without GOffice of any version installed (using --with-gtk2 --without-goffice). Abiword installed quietly and looks normal (to me). I still need to test drive it to see what (if any) functionality is missing. Anyway, just FYI, GOffice may be "recommended" instead of "required" for Abiword-3.0.0. I will report any bad things that I discover.
