Folks, I am totally new to Linux, I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with Cinnamon desktop, I want to install Abiword (an older version) because it's very stable compared with the new one.
I have downloaded the tar file and uncompressed it but I don't know what to do next .
The software centre only has the new unstable version
How can I do this by editing menu? Step by step please people I am so new.
