cool i was hoping to know if the file recovery in the linux version was as good<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)

but what distro, OO version and method of install did you use?
OO may crash a bit if you don't have Sun Java j2re1.5 installed correctly.
(to use it without jre at all i think you have to compile it from scratch<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:( )

i found the text converted to PDF a little blurry & hard to read when used with acrobat 6+ on windows (works fine on linux), and distorted.

all formatting does stay almost like it was scanned poorly.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:S



inline Word complete is also i god send i find<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)
