<br>May be you should have a closer look on LyX.<br><br>LyX is a LateX based documentation tool. It offers an easy gui-based interface<br>as you know it from common word processors as Abiword or OpenOffice.org.<br>The type of a new document is defined by so called document classes, as it is
<br>done in LaTeX.<br><br>So for a letter you would use the letter or koma-letter class, for a<br>documentation as a thesis or a book or koma-book class and for a presentation<br>you may use prosper or beamer class. For (complex) spreadsheats you can use
<br>gnumeric and export it to LaTeX. This can be imported to LyX afterwards but<br>it needs some LaTeX fizzeling, at least on the first time.<br><br>The workflow is diferent than those you may be familiar with in a<br>wordprocessor, a presentation applicaton or a spreadsheet application.
<br><br>What is a strong argument pro LyX is its tremendous layout, very professional,<br>as you know it from LaTeX based publications from O'Reilly or Prentice Hall.<br>And due to the fact that it is LaTeX based it don't change its document format
<br>every qouple of month.<br><br>I'm using LyX for my Linux and Unix course material and I'm using it since<br>years. Unlike others I hadn't to convert my documents to new file formats. So<br>I would judge LyX as a very sustainable and long lasting tool(set).
<br>But it needs some (sometimes more) LaTeX knowledge if you want to do really<br>nifty things. But there is a very friendly LyX users list and a extensive<br>LyX-wiki where you will find a lot of support and help, exspecially for
<br>beginers.<br><br><br><br>Another presentation tool is magicpoint<br>(the deb is named mgp, you will find it in synaptic)<br><br>mgp needs very few reccources and is damned fast even on very old hardware,<br>e.g. a P-III 300. A presentation is defined by a text file which has
<br>the 'commands' for the mgp engine. It looks a bit like a shell script, but<br>it's easy to understand and to learn.<br><br>At <a href="http://www.freeos.com/articles/3648/">http://www.freeos.com/articles/3648/</a> there is a small article /
<br>tutorial 'From Power (point) to Magic(point) - Presentations using your Linux<br>box' which shows a mgp file.<br><br>regards,<br>thomas<br><br>--<br>xubuntu-devel mailing list<br><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">
