Using WordPerfect on Linux

 

This site is intended to offer some help to the small band of enthusiasts who are still interested in using WordPerfect on Linux.

 

It is mainly concerned with installing and running WordPerfect for Linux, versions 8.0 or 8.1. These are versions of WordPerfect which are native to Linux.

 

It is intended to supplement the well-known WordPerfect FAQ published by Rick Moen in 2005. It will in general follow the terminology used there.

 

Since then further difficulties have arisen in installing and using WordPerfect on current distros. This site will endeavour to provide information and links which may be useful in overcoming these difficulties.
