There are two versions of the abiword word processor in the DSL repository.
The older abiword.dsl , found in the /apps section , seems to run OK for me
in a hard drive install. This ends your problem of having stuff removed
by apt-get, and is much leaner in size than the apt-get version.
It is a little older version, but may still may serve you well.
The cryptic message you saw is usually caused by trying to run
the mydsl icon as some other user besides userdsl, like root, or
another username you set up at boottime.
You could always get it here from one of your browsers..
Then open up emelfm, highlight the file, and click the mydsl button on the top center.
You still must be userdsl to do this..
The normal way would be to: ....
Use the mydsl icon on the desktop, select the apps section,
click on the abiword.dsl.info file from the list,
read the docs..
download to /tmp.
It installs automatically, and you should have both a menu option, and an icon.
Normally, extensions are used for frugal/liveCD use, and apt-get for hard drive installs..
But this one seems to behave fine here on my HDInstall I made for testing..
Let us know.
