And adopted. Thanks for your work on this package, WorMzy!

Cool, I've disowned the package so feel free to adopt. :)

Thanks! And sure, I'd be happy to take over maintenance. I use this program pretty frequently on my lower-powered laptops.

Cheers, I've tested the patch and it works fine. I've updated the package, but it doesn't really make sense for me to continue maintaining it as I haven't used it in years. If you're willing to take over, just let me know.

Hmm, looks like the markdown renderer mangled the whitespace. Here's a pastebin:

The source of the patch is me. I personally prefer the gtk2 version of abiword, and it looks like the upstream git repo has removed gtk2 support, so I just patched around the breakage myself.

I'm not sure where that patch comes from, but it doesn't apply to the clean 3.0.4 source code. I suspect there are other patches that need to be applied first, but I don't see that patch listed at

Due to some changes in glib2, Abiword will segfault upon copy-paste operations. The following patch fixes the issue:

If it was from community version of abiword, I tried the patch and it works fine. Thank you!

WorMzy commented on 2018-08-14 17:23 (UTC)

Okay, I've added an extra change to the patch to make the configure script look for "enchant-2" now. I'm.. not sure when that library name was changed, it's possible that spell-checking has been broken for a looong time (I mostly use Google Docs nowadays). I've checked the fix works with my setup (using hunspell-en_GB), and I've pushed the update. Could you test the update on your setup, bidulock?

Sigh. These comments always come when I'm AFK in a field in Derbyshire. :P

I'll try to remember to update this package when I get home. Thanks for letting me know!
