How to build "OpenOffice_3.x_tr" (Turkish) package for Slackware?


Hello Slackers;
I struggled for installing openoffice_3.x_tr package from its offical rpm package on my Slack 12.1, but i could not be successful. First i tried to rpm2tgz conversion tool by converting all rpm packages (*.rpm) to slack's native tgz format, then i installed all of the converted packages by pkgtool but this yielded nothing for me. Second i tried a slackbuild script for openoffice 3.x_en-US package by replacing source package file with TR one and making related modifications on the script. Again i could not be successful. Is there an easy way getting openoffice_3.x_tr? English version works perfectly, is there a language patch to convert language of menus and dialogs(english) in to Turkish?

The "rpm link" , Turkish, is down for the moment,
may be the packages needed repair ??

I downloaded the Turkish debian package
http://download.openoffice.org/other.html#en-US
and did # 'alien -t *.deb' and # 'installpkg *.tgz'
so now I have a nice OOO speaking Turkish
(can't understand a word) on Slackware 12.1

Also installing openoffice-org-debian-menus, the
entries will appear in the menu at some time.
( Can be found in /opt/openoffice.org3/share/xdg/
and /usr/share/applications/ too. )

There is no specific language package. 22 packages
have "-tr-" for Turkish in their name.
....

Thank you very much knudfl.
I got open office TR version by applying your instructions. I converted all debian packages and installed on slack including debian menus. Is it sufficient or are there any other required works such as removing unnecessary files and packages to get better performance? I use both xfce and kde.

I have noticed that open office theme is a bit different. Menus are like metal plates, but may be not. Forget this if it is impossible

Impress menu problem

http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/350...presstrgm0.png

There are some clickable blank portions in the menus. Clicking on these blank portions related property launches. Can i fix this problem? Perhaps problem is in the program source related with translation.

It is the first version of 3.xx, so it will improve
by the next versions.

I do not use OOO Impress, so I can't answer for the
blank's. May be a bug ??

The performance seems OK.
