1. Will the LibreOffice WPD filters work in OO current (3.4) by simply moving some files into appropriate directories?
1.1 If so, which files and which directories?
2. If not, can the LibreOffice source code be "glued" into the current production OO source code and OO "custom" rebuilt?
I need to be able to import WP files for two reasons: existing WP files that now need to be converted to a current open word processor format,
and the same for Applix Word files. I have a licensed version of ApplixWare that converts to WP -- the conversion to RTF never worked in Applixware. At present, with OO WP support gone, I use ABIword to convert WP to ODT -- as ABIword does have this functionality. However, the fewer steps I need to use, the better.

I need to open WordPerfect files as well. Where do I get the libwpd library, and how do I install it?

With earlier versions of OpenOffice I had no problem switching from one to the other, but since version 3.4 no more. I guess you should contact Corel to stop this stupid commercial war -if this is the problem - and get WordPerfect files readable again in OpenOffice. Corel will not loose a client for that !
