the problem: *.rtfd seems to be a “stuck on OSX” problem…
but actually TextEdit is a OpenSource (!) software 🙂
textedit.app 4.0+20061029-3.4+b1 amd64 Text editor for GNUstep
you can download debian packages here:
and install it via:
wget https://ftp.mpi-sb.mpg.de/pub/mirrors/linux/debian/pool/main/t/textedit.app/textedit.app_4.0+20061029-3.4+b1_amd64.deb dpkg -i textedit.app_4.0+20061029-3.4+b1_amd64.deb aptitude install textedit.app
but unfortunately it looks a lot different…
the *.RTFD is basically just a folder with a TXT.rtf and a lot of *.tiff pictures in it that the osx “TextEdit” combines to a document.
wget http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/editors/ted/ted-2.23-amd64.deb apt-get update;apt-get install libtiff4 libjpeg8; dpkg -i ted-2.23-amd64.deb
mirror download: ted-2.23-amd64.deb.tar.gz
the funny thing…
while LibreOffice office has problems with *.rtf, TED Text Editor can open the TXT.rtf right away…
WARNING! problems: clipboard
while having a document open copying stuff from browser (icedove) <-> to TED Editor… ted crashed… and destroyed my document.

i think i gonna abandon the RTF Format completely and move to *.html
… i think i have a backup of that file… d*** it.
what alternatives are there?
synaptics shows me “tea” and “gwrite” as possible alterative… can do both… html and rtf.
i gonna give it a try. thumbs pressed. fingers crossed.
: simple GTK+ HTML5 rich text editor
gWrite is a simple GTK+ HTML5 WYSIWYG editor, focusing on writing
and simple text formating. It can automatically generate a table of
contents based on the document structure.
It aims to be lighter than OOWrite & OOWeb, and to be as useful as them.
i think gwrite is what i was looking for… gonna test it and report soon.
