Installation of Help Pack For LibreOffice 3.6.2
 
I am using Slackware 13.37, 32-bit. I am fairly novice with Linux.

I have installed LibreOffice 3.6.2 using the SlackBuilds.com script (I modified the line which starts with VERSION).

Now I would like to also install the corresponding Help Pack, available here:http://www.libreoffice.org/download/...&version=3.6.2

Does anyone know how to do it? There is no SlackBuilds.com script that I could find and Google did not turn up anything helpful in this respect...

I will post the same question on LibreOffice's mailing list.

Hello tb -

I had the same problem as you; I wanted to have the corresponding help pack, and came across the same lack of SlackBuilds and ready-made packages. However, I came up with a solution that might help. Type this into a console (assuming you've downloaded the package already):

Code:

cd LibO_3.6.2.2_Linux_x86_helppack-rpm_en-US/RPMS
rpm2txz libobasis3.6-en-US-help-3.6.2.2-2.i586.rpm
installpkg libobasis3.6-en-US-help-3.6.2.2-2.i586.txz

The rpm2txz utility is quite useful in these kinds of situations. Hope this helps.

Great suggestion! Thanks.
