Making Word.doc Files on Linux

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Smashwords requires Microsoft Word.doc files for the books it publishes. This is a problem for Linux users because Word doesn't run natively on Linux. You can make these files with LibreOffice (the replacement for OpenOffice). This revised edition shows you how to use LibreOffice to produce files that will work on Smashwords. More

About Anthony Campbell

Professionally, I am a conventionally qualified medical doctor who has experience of some kinds of alternative medicine, but I am a self-confessed generalist and have written on subjects unrelated to medicine. In so far as there is a unifying theme in these books, it is sceptical and describes the progressive questioning and ultimate abandonment of belief systems. This emerges in my two books on religion and also in my critical account of the origin and development of homeopathy. My historical study of the sect of the Assassins is an examination of a fascinating set of religious ideas in mediaeval Islam, with relevance to modern religion-inspired terrorism.

Although I am now retired from clinical practice I continue to teach modern medical acupuncture to health professionals. My textbook for the courses I teach is available here.

I'm interested in computers and used Linux as my operating system for many years. I've now switched almost completely to OpenBSD. My book Making Word.doc Files on Linux covers how to do this for both Linux and *BSD.

Review by: Ety Wilson on July 21, 2014 :
This book was exactly what I needed. Being a Xubuntu user, I don't have Word, just LibreOffice. I know LO can do almost anything Word can, but trying to figure out how would be a learning curve I wasn't ready for. This book fills the bill.
