That was a very interesting article. Thanks for posting. Now I need to digest what I read.
Not being a coder, I am trying to understand the implications he his warning about.

Thanks again! I was referring to libreoffice-l10n-en_US-3.2.99.3-i486-1alien.txz...

The .txt file says:

Code:
libreoffice-l10n-en_US: libreoffice-l10n-en_US (LibreOffice en_US localization)
libreoffice-l10n-en_US:
libreoffice-l10n-en_US: English language support for LibreOffice.
[...]
libreoffice-l10n-en_US: libreoffice home: http://www.documentfoundation.org/
Why would I need this, if US-English is the default language, anyway?

slackbuild

With too much time on my hands I attempted to build the 3.2.99.3 slackbuild Alien has posted.
I was successful only after a change in "Slackware.conf.in"
On my 64-13.1 system I had to change line 30 from
--with-ant-home=/usr/share/apache-ant
To
--with-ant-home=/usr/share/ant

5 and a half hours later I had a working libreoffice-3.2.99.3-x86_64-1alien.txz

Thanks
john

I'm giving this a try again, on a fresh install of 13.1 - xfce(not 4.8), fully updated. I'm getting a similar error, but now it's on line 610.

Code:
libreoffice-build-3.3.0.4/extensions/tweakconfig/Makefile.am
libreoffice-build-3.3.0.4/extensions/Makefile.am
libreoffice-build-3.3.0.4/download_external_sources.sh
libreoffice-build-3.3.0.4/emacs.el
Building ...
libreoffice.SlackBuild: line 610: KDEDIRS: unbound variable
Is this a bug? or do I need to add something as I build it?

Thanks,
Scott

I'm attempting to install libreoffice build-3.3.0.4. (Alien Bob's slackbuild)
onto my 32-bit slackware 13.1 system. I'm running KDE 4.4.3.

The build is failing with the following:

Code:
./package-ooo: line 9:
/tmp/build/tmp-libreoffice/libreoffice-build-3.3.0.4/build/libreoffice-3.3.0.4/*
.[sS]et.sh: No such file or directory
libreoffice.SlackBuild: line 720: cd:
/tmp/build/package-libreoffice/usr/lib/libreoffice/basis-link/share/fonts/
truetype/: No such file or directory
libreoffice.SlackBuild FAILED at line 725
Thanks in advance

That's why I provide the binary packages as well. If you are unable to figure out why the build fails, just install the package.

The biggest issue I have with LibreOffice so far is that it seems it can't remember my customizations. I customize it; and, after closing the application, one or two runs later, it goes back to the default settings. Really annoying and it got me some very bad mojo with The Wife(TM) after she found that particular fact the hard way...

I used both AlienBob's precompiled x86 binary and Niels Horn's Slackbuild, with the appropriate changes to allow building of 3.3 final. I saw the behavior in both builds.

Installed the package after the above build crashed. No problems so far.

Later on,

I've got the same problem with the latest 32-bit binary package from Eric. And the spell-check doesn't seem to work. Do I need to download and install an English (US) dictionary?

Thanks,

Indeed, I do not add dictionaries into my libreoffice packages, you will have to download and install those from http://extensions.services.openoffic...n/dictionaries. Subscribe to my blog posts and/or read http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/get-...eoffice-3-3-0/ where I explain more about the packages I create.

Thanks,
Yes, you need to install spellcheck dictionaries, even en-US. You can get them from the OpenOffice.org site.
