Installing Open Office toolbar theme icons


Hi all
Has anybody installed this? Willing to help me out in doing that?
The icons are very nice as seen from screenshots and are available at KDE-looks.

What problems are you having?

From the site:
Quote:
Install
-------

Extract the downloaded file.
* To install the default theme in OOo 1.1.x, run:
"tclsh quickInstall.tcl"

* To install any custom themes,
Specify your OOo config directory in config.tcl and the theme directory, run:
"tclsh genbar.tcl"
Seems fairly straightforward.

The first step is to extract the files - I haven't used it so can't go into too much detail.

Then issue "tclsh quickInstall.tcl", w/o the quotes.

The program will then install itself into OOo.

Looks as though you don't have TCL installed. Install it and the retry the toolbar.

My understanding of the install process is that it automatically adds itself to your current OOo installation and so should be available to all. But I've never installed it and so cannot give you a definitive answer.

Hi
Thanks a lot.
Excellent, it worked after installing TCL. Now i want to correct it. I have installed in my home directory, so should I do it for /usr/local or it should be installed in my home?
Thanks again

If you want it available to all, put it in /usr/local. Leave it in /home if you just want it for yourself.

Do a 'whereis sversionrc' or 'locate sversionrc' to see where it is installed - it looks to me as though it is installed in a home directory. Were you root when you installed? That may make a difference. You may need to install for each user individually.

It may also be a good idea (whether you get it installed or not) to contact the writer of this app with feedback on your experiences. Much of this could have been fixed with decent documentation.

Hiya
You are absolutely right. That file is in the home directory. SO I guess it has to be run by each user.
Thanks a lot

No problem - if you have a large number of users, and running the file individually is too much difficulty, you could try su'ing as root (or logging in as root) and copying the relevant files into all the home directories.

Or not - it's up to you!
