Please download "Linux / Unix" installation package of GOWrite 2 from download page. Then continue with instructions in this page.
Installing rpm file
As root execute
rpm -U gowrite2-2.2.10.rpm
(substitute correct rpm file name.) This installs gowrite into /opt/gowrite2 directory.
Running GOWrite 2
GOWrite has two shell scripts available in installation directory. Basic script is "gowrite" and it just starts GOWrite. Advanced script "gowrite2" uses same GOWrite instance for all files.
GOWrite 2.3 linux installation has been tested in SuSe 10.1 and 11.0, and Acer Aspire One (linpus). Some notes:
- In Aspire One desktop icon is not created automatically.
- I have got reports that GOwrite2 rpm installs fine to ubuntu (using normal ubuntu RPM handling).
Currently linux GOWrite is tested using JRE 1.5 and 1.6 versions.
