Download and Install GOWrite 2
Please download "other platform" installation package of GOWrite 2 from download page. Then continue with instructions in this page.
Installing zip file
After download unzip file to desired directory. zip file contains GOWrite subdirectory (eg. gowrite2_2_1_05).
GOWrite can be started using command "java -jar GOWrite.jar" in installation directory, but
this does not offer full functionality (at least help is missing). Please see Unix shell
scripts "gowrite" and "gowrite2" for more advanced ways to start GOWrite. In many
environments it is possible to just click (double click?) GOWrite.jar, and it will start with
above mentioned restriction.
GOWrite 2 needs Java runtime environment (JRE, version 1.4 or later), to be present. Please note that 1.3.x or earlier runtime can not be used.
