      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Timeframe File Types

Recommended Posts

I understand that by default Timeframe only supports certain file types. In particular it only shows .doc and .docx documents (or pdf but nobody creates documents in that format). This is strange given that this is a Linux distro and those are Msoft filetypes. I create my documents in Abiword so can anyone please tell me how to add .abw as a supported file type in Timeframe?


This is a very interesting distribution btw and Timeframe is the most interesting thing about it. I would be very pleased to use Mandriva again (I used it years ago pretty well exclusively) but if it doesn't support native Linux document formats I don't see the point in carrying on.

Mandriva does support native Linux document formats. If TimeFrame doesn't, that doesn't mean that Mandriva is at fault just because of one feature.
