Description Andreas Thalhammer 2005-08-06 14:15:11 UTC
This just installs PlanMaker SE 2004 Linux Edition Rev. 273 - but you have to 
get PlanMaker 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.

It may be a "trial", but you can load AND save 
- Excel 5.0/7.0  
- Excel 97/2000/XP/2003  
- Ritch Text Format  
- dBase/DOS and dBase/Windows 
and can LOAD 
- StarCalc 1.0/2.0 
besides the PlanMaker file format, of course. 
My tarball is called "free linux edition" with the digest  
MD5 e0beac80636acbe7dc050d411a479035 planmakerfree.tgz 6371035 
Please check if it's the same.

Also check out TextMaker (can load and save Microsoft Word files):

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.

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.

The main problem is that this cannot be downloaded anywhere (except for the
trial), so sorry, marking this WONTFIX.
