Cannot open .kwd file

Sat Jun 30, 2012 12:01 pm
Hello *

My wife found an old (2003) .kwd file which I cannot open with calligra words.
When trying, I receive the following error message:
Code: Select all
Could not open
/home/hss/temp/Tischregularien_Suetterlin.kwd.
Reason: Not implemented

Any help available?

If somebody will be willing to help: Here is the file:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36110887/Tischregularien_Suetterlin.kwd

Anyone able to migrate it into .odt, .doc, even .txt is ok.

Any help is extremely appreciated!

Yes, Calligra Words isn't just a fork of KWord, it's practically completely rewritten, losing kwd support in the process. It would be easy to create an import filter, but a lot of work, and there's so much other stuff to do. I can try to convert it for you, though.

I hope it's okay... I had to compile an old version of kword -- here it is: http://www.valdyas.org/Tischregularien_Suetterlin.odt

I get a 404.
Could you confirm the link, please?

Hey all! I registered just to post this in case it helps others. Years ago I used KWord for quite a few documents and have tried many times to find a way to open them. Tried a lot of old distros that were KDE but couldn't get Kword/KOffice up and running and seriously was going to give up. Found a Slax 5.0.6 iso that comes with KWord ready to go. My Desktop is a 2010? AMD 1090T. The live Slax booted to a text prompt to enter root- instruction are right there with the password. That takes you to another prompt where thank God 'startx' worked and I was in! Had copied all my kword documents into a file and put that on the slax usb. Once booted in I started KWord and searched the usb. No easy way to batch them all, but I did open them all and saved them in abiword format. Booted back into my system and LibreOffice opened them! So if you can boot Slax 5.0.6 you might save some of those oldie documents. Best of luck!
