Description Andreas Thalhammer 2005-08-06 14:13:33 UTC
This just installs TextMaker SE 2002 Linux Edition Rev. 405 - but you have to 
get TextMaker yourself (I got it from a Magazine-CD: PC-WELT, german edition). 
It gets the language settings from the LINGUAS variable (which should be set 
on every system) and will install either the german "de" or the english "en" 
version (every other LINUAS setting installs the english version). 
You may be able to obtain a free copy from, but I'm not sure.

Not only that the trial is not just fetchable, you even have to leave your email
address. Don't know who needs this treatment...
Comment 4 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-06 14:47:49 UTC
Oh, I was wrong. You can just go on without entering anything. Still only a
trial and the name of the tarball differs, though.

Comment 6 Andreas Thalhammer 2005-08-07 03:56:19 UTC
Well, i hope it's the same version. It may be a "trial", but you can load AND 
- Word 6.0/95 
- Word 97/2000/XP 
- Ritch Text Format 
- Pocket Word-Pocket PC 
- Pocket Word-Handheld PC 
besides the TextMaker document format, off course. 
My tarball is called "free linux edition" with the digest 
MD5 071e4e122fe62929d13c151c876a9eb0 textmakerfree.tgz 6956288 
Please check if it's the same.  
Comment 7 Andreas Thalhammer 2005-08-07 04:00:05 UTC
Also check out PlanMaker (can load and save Microsoft Excel files): 
Comment 8 Andreas Thalhammer 2005-08-07 04:19:10 UTC
Okay, I found out that you can only download a trial from the SoftMaker  
homepage. That's bad!  
Some magazines published the free edition on their CDs, including PC-WELT and  
c't (check out If you  
don't have one of them, then you don't have the free edition. Sorry. 
Comment 9 Andreas Thalhammer 2005-08-07 04:21:33 UTC
Google search: 
But the digest is different (file size differs)...

Regarding the ebuild:

1/ Header is invalid.
2/ Keywords do not follow the policy.
3/ IUSE is commented out, but it's mandatory, even if empty.
4/ Remove redundant comments.

I get "Connection refused" for the link posted in comment #9, so the main
problem is that this cannot be downloaded anywhere (except for the trial).

Sorry, marking this WONTFIX.
