Hi

Does anyone else have this problem with Kword?  I get an error message regarding filters when I try to open .doc files (MSWord).  They happily open in Open Office Writer and if I use Kword in other distros.

Thanks in advance (and thanks for the best looking, stable and fast KDE I've tried!)

Thanks for your reply Andreas

The message window is titled "Missing Import Filter" Kword"

Then: "Could not import file of type application/msword"

Are there some filters I need to install?  I've googled this problem, but no-one else seems to have the same dificulty.

Many thanks,

Andrew

Hello Andrew,

This pages provide information about which file formats are supported by KOffice.

Perhaps you try it with "abiword", which find you in the Repos. Wink

Thanks for that.  It looks as though .doc files aren't supported in Kword.  They are fine with Abiword.  I've just checked in Debian KDE (a dual-boot) and they open with Kword there, mysteriously!

Not to worry, I've got Open Office and Abiword to use, so I shouldn't complain!

Thanks for your help

Andrew
