    For writing Texts, Libre Office is there. What "services" are you looking for that it can't provide?

    This should do the trick for you: (from http://www.ubuntugeek.com/focuswrite...html#more-9542 ):

    Install focuswriter in ubuntu
    Open the terminal and run the following commands
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gottcode/gcppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install focuswriter

    EDIT: @audiomick: focuswriter allows for fullscreen editing (same as LO) but by default , and when you mouse to the side menus come up cpntrary ro LO where you have to leave fullscreen.

    Ah, I can see where that could be useful on a small screen.
