installing sun staroffice on gentoo 2006.0


Is it possible to install the above office pack on gentoo?

Ive read several post all over the net concerning this subject, but they all seem to be very complicated and most of all timeconsuming.

Is there an 'easy' way?

Sincerely, Jørgen

why not use openoffice? it is the same code as staroffice but free(as in freedom). type "emerge openoffice". Beware this is a huge compile and will take all night probably.

You can use a package if you do not want long compile times.
Code:
#emerge openoffice-bin

Thanks for your replies.

I will go for the .bin file to spare some time

Sincerely, Jorgen
