Question How to get only some app of openoffice.org?


I am going to install lenny-netinst on an old machine

I am going to use kde-core as DE, Abiword for documents.
I only need the OOImpress package since i cant find any standalone powerpoint-compatible presentation programs.


Is it possible to install a minimal OOo, just to get Impress?

please name the packages i need to install.

Thank you.

I believe that you cannot get only one component of Openoffice but so much of the code is shared among the various components that the saving in space is minimal if you could do it. Just grit your teeth and install the whole thing. It won't hurt a bit.
cheers,

There is a lot of shared code. You can see the space savings by doing aptitude -s install openoffice.org and aptitude -s install openoffice.org-impress separately to see how many MB will be downloaded.

Honestly I haven't tried so I don't know what the savings would be. It might be significant, it might be minimal.
