Summary

Linux has long been gaining power as a desktop productivity OS. Today, application suites such as OpenOffice.org, KOffice, and GNOME Office provide the tools you need to perform typical office tasks such as word processing and presentations. Linux also offers more traditional Unix tools such as LaTeX, which remains the tool of choice for many scientific, engineering, and other technical endeavors. When using office tools, you must be aware of peculiarities relating to Linux's handling of fonts and printers. Using more than basic fonts from Linux office tools often requires installing the fonts twice—in X and in the office program. You may also need to tell your office program about your printer, or fine-tune your printer configuration to enable the program to use specialized features such as duplexers or multiple sheet feeders.
