In Precise we released a very unstable version of 'abiword':
If you bother reading that forum post you'll see I posted a work-around:
But, as it says, there is now a PPA to revert to version 2.8.6:
BTW more testing of that PPA in Precise is quite welcome :)
But my reason for posting here is that my request to revert the package version for 12.04.1 is very likely to be denied :(
I think it's much more realistic to get 'abiword' working properly in Quantal and then get those updates introduced into Precise.
So I'd appreciate everyone inclined to do so to test 'abiword' and report results to that bug report. Does that make sense :confused:
