You can not select more than 25 topics Topics must start with a letter or number, can include dashes ('-') and can be up to 35 characters long.


  1. KOffice is based on TDE ( http://www.trinitydesktop.org ) which is needed to run KOffice.
  2. You need tdelibs and tdebase installed if you want to compile and run
  3. KOffice. Look in the tdelibs sourcedir for the file COMPILING for help. Also
  4. look at the website as there are many helpfiles available.
  5. KOffice is a collection of office applications linked together by a common
  6. basis. This common basis assures that all office application can work
  7. together. You can, for instance, insert a spreadsheet in your thesis without
  8. leaving your document. Editing the spreadsheet happens _inside_ your thesis.
  9. The applications currently included in KOffice are:
  10. - KWord
  11. Professional text editing
  12. - KSpread
  13. Professional number cruncher/spreadsheet
  14. - KPresenter
  15. Professional presentation program
  16. - KChart
  17. Graphing of your abstract data
  18. - Karbon
  19. Vector graphics tool
  20. - Kugar
  21. Database report creation
  22. - Kivio
  23. Flowcharting program
  24. - Kexi
  25. Integrated data management
  26. - Chalk
  27. A pixel graphics tool
  28. - KFormula
  29. A mathematical formula editor
  30. - KOffice Workspace
  31. A combination of all of the above
  32. Note: these applications are not necessarily part of the previous or next
  33. official stable version of KOffice.
  34. Developers:
  35. ===========
  36. KOffice is created by Open Source programmers around the world. All developers
  37. give their time/code to the community for everyone to benefit. The major reason
  38. this is done is because those developers want to have a good office suite, and
  39. they don't mind sharing it with you.
  40. If you feel you found a bug or missing feature you can always contact the
  41. developers of KOffice (via http://www.trinitydesktop.org ) or delve into the software
  42. yourself.
  43. The part that is shared between all KOffice applications can be found in the lib
  44. directory. There classes like KoDocument can be found; these classes are
  45. extended in the project directories.
  46. Read the .h files in the respective directories for more info.
  47. Document format:
  48. ================
  49. Nearly all KOffice applications use XML formatted files in a ZIP file.
  50. The main document in XML format can be read with a text editor (after having
  51. unzip-ped it from the ZIP file.) XML itself is simply a set of tags,
  52. where the application can define the meaning of these tags. The definition of
  53. the document type is therefore different for each KOffice application (as you
  54. will most likely not find a curved line in a KWord document). The Document Type
  55. Definition can be found in every application's source directory in the
  56. directory '(application)/dtd.'
  57. If you would like more information about the makeup of the actual KOffice
  58. document structure (not the XML DTD), see the lib/store/SPEC file.
  59. If you want to see more/fix bugs in this file, feel free to ask or add it
  60. yourself.
