on OpenSUSE 11 anything ( 11.1,11.2,11.3,11.4 )
there is NO UPDATE

it is well beyond it's END OF LIFE

OpenSUSE 11.4 went End Of Life back in "November 5th 2012"

As i recall 11.4 had firefox 4 installed
Firefox is now firefox 24

ALL of the old OpenSUSE 11.? are unsupported

please stay current and install a supported version
The current is OpenSUSE 12.3

?
you might want to start a new thread for a new issue
but

what is this PDF ? opensuse 11.1 had i think GO-office , a fork of openoffice. ( a bit old but usable for any older file format)
you will not be able to open a MS office 2012 docx file but you would be able to open a 2008 docx file

gooffice should be able to open a pdf in writer

now as to converting it into a spread sheet ????????

what is this pdf ?
a CVS file or what ?
some table or other thing that can be put into a spread sheet ?

and what EXACT type of Microsoft .xlsx ( 2006 to 2013) or old .xls ( pre 2006 ) Microsoft format do you need
or is the openoffice spread sheet .ods format fine ?

I'm amazed that these people are new to Linux and they're installing years' old versions. Either that or they installed it a long time ago and did nothing, or inherited a system.

Nothing wrong with installing old systems.


Hi, OP. How about you start Firefox in the terminal, by typing "firefox". It should give you much info about the issue.

an OLD and SUPPORTED system is one thing
RHEL 4.9 is on Extra extended lifesupport
RHEL 5.9 is old but supported
SELS11 sp3 is aging but supported

running Fedora 13 ? not good
running Ubuntu 9 ? not good

running OpenSUSE 11 point anything ( 1,2,3,4 ) ? not good

running OpenSUSE 12.1 ? not good it went end of life back in May of this year ( May 15th 2013)

there is the Evergreen project for opensuse ,but it is a bit iffy and for 11.2 and 11.4
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Evergreen

keeping a old and UNSUPPORTED version running is a heck of a lot of work
you have to start building parts from source
and you soon end up with a " Frankensteined " install
a mix of different things

John. Who cares if the system is supported. That is one of the points of open source and freedom. You can support your own system. Besides, who needs all the newest software all the time anyways?

Some people have old hardware and is better off with old distroes for example.

What is the problem with using sources packages?
I remember in the old days, we only used sources packages, and it was not a problem at all. Challenging, yes, but certainly not a problem. And there was absolutely no feeling that we needed to use a "supported" system.

Most any parts in a source system is exchangable at any point.

In package systems its different, there are so many illogical dependencies and difficulties that having a rolling system is almost impossible. You cant simply exchange any piece of software.

There is a new distro now that wants to tackle that exact proble. It seems like a very interesting project. Manjaro GNU/Linux.

If you have the knowledge to run an unsupported OS and keep it secure and functioning then you don't have to ask a forum such as this why your version of a program isn't behaving as you think it ought.
If you can run Windows 98, Debian Woody or any other OS securely and efficiently then "Go you!". But you should also know why it is ridiculous to ask for help with it in a forum such as this.
If you're an expert go and sort it.

the ./mozilla folder in your home folder
is not the firefox install
it is only your settings and bookmarks and add on settings and user only installed add ons

firefox is installed to
/usr/bin
/usr/lib
/usr/lib/browser-plugins
/usr/share/firefox

unless you manually installed the prebuilt
like the 64 bit FF24
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla....-x86_64/en-US/

then it is all in one place
