  1. I kinda have a bug though. When I click on a menu and then submenu, the program closes!!! Weird huh? I run Kompozer on Ubuntu Jaunty. The same bug appears on a friend’s laptop, he’s using XP. I prefer Bluefish though, like the coding part more…

    I had the same problem with Kompozer closing. After searching for answers online I finally found where someone said to upgrade to the newer version of Kompozer, even though it’s still in alpha release it seems to run much more stable in Ubuntu. Hope this helps you!

  5. I tried to install Kompozer in my Fedora 11, but I get the error message:

    “No package kompozer available.”

    Do I need to install another repository? If so, which one?

    please install rpmfusion first. then try again

  7. I had a desire to make my own organization, however I did not have enough of cash to do this. Thank God my mate suggested to use the business loans. Hence I received the student loan and realized my dream.

  8. Some time ago, I needed to buy a building for my firm but I didn’t earn enough cash and couldn’t buy something. Thank God my sister proposed to try to get the loans from reliable bank. Thence, I did so and used to be happy with my bank loan.

  9. Various people in all countries receive the loan from different creditors, because it is simple and comfortable.

  10. Houses are expensive and not everybody can buy it. But, business loans was created to support people in such cases.

  11. If you’re in the corner and have got no cash to go out from that, you will have to receive the loans. Because that should aid you definitely. I get financial loan every time I need and feel great just because of it.

  12. Make your life more easy take the personal loans and everything you need.

  13. I opine that to get the credit loans from creditors you must present a great reason. But, one time I have got a car loan, just because I wanted to buy a building.

  14. Do not enough money to buy a car? Don’t worry, just because that is available to receive the credit loans to work out such problems. Therefore get a short term loan to buy everything you need.
