Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

Is it possible to have LibroOffice and Apache OpenOffice on the same system? I noticed the formatting of a couple of my documents was off when I view them on my phone with viewers based off the Apache fork so I tried installing it by using rpm2tgz and it works but seems to have killed LibreOffice in the process. I get nothing trying to launch Libreoffice even from command line.
Anyone know why fonts are different between the two, why would they not use the same system fonts and therefore be the same size?
The formatting was off in Apache Openoffice as well, seems have the same fonts as Libreoffice.
I used AlienBOB's packages for LibreOffice so it was in /usr/lib and then used the RPM's for Apache so it installed in /opt/openoffice.
I had to remove Apache to get Libre to start. I had shared a couple of my documents and thought about submitting my templates and was going to check them in both but the fonts are off enough that the formatting is messed up so I was going to see whats common in both.
Distribution: Slackware 14 (Server),Suse 13.1 (Desktop),, Mepis on the wifes lappy
Actually this is pretty easy. Libreoffice can be called from /usr/bin/libreoffice, while Ooo can be called from /usr/bin/soffice when both are installed. Having said that, there will be some issues anyway with compatibilty between the 2, especially when it comes to fonts so YMMV.
NOTE2: To keep LibreOffice installed concurrently with OpenOffice, run the
included "open-libre-together.sh" script saved in the documentation
directory of this package to patch the .desktop menu files.
