The Word Bible software works in Elive
October 25, 2009 07:24AM
Hi all. Just to let you all know that I have just successfully installed under WINE "The Word" free Bible software. It is considered even better than eSword, and I consider better than Gnomesword. I have dual boot Windows and Elive (1.9.31)
I think this Bible software is worthy to be included in the Synaptics package manager, if someone knows how to do this.
To install I went to the downloaded file and clicked on the Word setup file, and just followed the prompts. Too easy.

Thanks for this info, I really like this software. Bibletime for KDE4 is pretty good, too, but this was a program I didn't know about.

I've been a dedicated eSword user for years now, but this looks really good. When I've got time, I intend to install it and give it a chance. Thanks for the heads up on it. clap

Well, it all works well. There are a couple of commentaries I like that I haven't found yet, but there's an overall good look, Search is straightforward, parallel versions work well. It looks like a good tool, and I'm sure I'll get good use out of it.
