gnome ,openoffice in slack11!!
Hi I just install slackware 11 after using 10 for almost two year now. Everything going fine and I notice that it didn't have gnome desktop anymore , well,I wasn't complaing because I am a kde fan . But recently I need to to write 50-60 document with a lot of picture on it and kword was doing ok.And then after writing ten pages I found out that I run out of ink in my printer and I need to printf my doucment in a cyber cafe and in kword I don't see any way to save the doucment as doc (microsoft) format.I live in burma and in burma people are not familiar with the term linux and a few expert who know linux mistake red hat as sole linux distributions.Getting anywhere in burma print kword format is a mission impossible.And I remember that openoffice got .doc format , so I download the openoffice from it website and install it as root in a shell (./install )and it inttall it in /usr/src/openoffice folder and when I try to run any bin file such as soffice or anyother thing I get segement core fault and could not run anything .I tried linuxpackages.net and all the .tgz file are above 120 mb at 4 to 6 kb per sec whiche would take 6 to 9 hours to finish the download .In burma that is also impossible ,I am lucky enought to get someone send me slack11 cd from aboard .Well I althought I been using slackware since 9.x I am still a newbie and I need to printf those document ,I need to print in color so even if I buy new ink cartiage it won't do . Is there anyway I could install openoffice without going throught much problem by downloading .tgz file from linuxpackages.net
