installed open office from linuxpackages.net, don't know how to open it
i feel dumb and newbish-like.
i run what command??? does anyone know...
im not kidding, this is not a joke, i have no idea how to run open office 1.9x
found in /opt/openoffice.org1.9.73/program/
There's a newer more stable version out btw.
EDIT: here's info on the latest version
Might as well ..
Unfortunately, you don't get nice icons and menu entries unless you work for them, since with the menus packages provided:
1) All the symlinks to the *.desktop files (the menu entries) are wrong
2) The shell script it uses for launching OOo from the menu entries is wrong (/usr/bin/openoffice.org-1.9 points to an obscure location that doesn't exist (/etc/openoffice-1.9? Where did they get that one from))
You can use the build script I've posted here for those (but you need to download OO.org from the OO.org website for this):
It will leave you with nice openofficeorg*.tgz packages in /tmp which you can then just install.
Very nice script cathectic. Don't forget to mention to change the version in there to
thanx a lot guys
soffice is enough for me!
as long as it works, im happy
cathectic, Can i ask.. I don't use KDE, Gnome, and a few other rpm packages that might be in there.. Is there any way i can exclude them in the script?
I've edited the script with the latest version below. To *not* build the menus, where it says:
To exclude packages, add them where I've said:
# All the menu packages are automatically deleted
I'm fairly certain you need all the core packages, plus whichever applications you want on top (these seperate packages do have an advantage after all...) I imagine Gnome integration is unecessary. I don't know about the rest (haven't really experimented).
Latest version of ooo.SlackBuild
Again, Excellent script. Thanks alot, i was wondering how i could stick the icons in xfce's menu, and it did the job well.
