missing file for OpenOffice.org 2.0


I've been trying out the OOo 2.0 betas and release candidates by converting all of the RPMs (minus the desktop-integration packages) into one large slackware .tgz package. All of the packages after 1.9.125 (beta2) give me this error:

Code:
$ /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libvcl680li.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
The file libvcl680li.so appears in 1.9.125 but isn't anywhere to be found in later versions, so I'm stuck using this version. Does anyone else have this problem?

i wasn't aware that OOo did RPMs
last time i checked it was either their installer or the source




what's wrong with stable?

They have a zipped set of RPMs here for version 2.0: http://download.openoffice.org/2.0.0rc/index.html

I run rpm2tgz on the RPMs, then explodepkg and makepkg to create one superpackage.

2.0 is looking much better than 1.x. I'm looking for bugs to report so I'd like to try the latest version. The thing is, I can't find anybody else having this exact problem, so I'm not sure if it's a problem with OOo, with converting the RPMs, or if I have a bad configuration.

I've had no problem using rpm2tgz on the RPM files (I didn't make one huge tgz though) and then using installpkg to install them.

Update: I just tried 2.0rc3, still no luck.

First it can't find the file "libvcl680li.so" so I symlink it to the one provided with 1.9.125. Now it complains about missing "libutl680li.so" and I do the same thing, then again for "libtl680li.so" and "libtk680li.so". Here's when I get a different error:
Quote:
$ /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
no suitable windowing system found, exiting.
The missing files don't appear in any of the packages after running rpm2tgz.

Problem solved!

I had this line in /etc/fstab so that /tmp would be mounted in RAM. I guess rpm2tgz uses /tmp and it ran out of space when converting the packages without giving any error messages, leaving me a few files short.

Code:
tmpfs      /tmp       tmpfs     size=100m,mode=1777 0  0

I should do only rpm2tgz and install it with installpkg and that' it? I i've installed a beta version once and I remember some more things should be done...
maybe mime-update or something similar...

I did it with rpm2tgz, but I did not install everything. I do not want to install Java (my box is a free one), and Writer, Calc, Draw and Impress work brilliantly without it.

The problem is probably because soffice (and other commands like swriter etc)
is not in your PATH.

try following from command line:
/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
does it work?

After I installed Open Office 2.0.3,
i had to add location of OpenOffice executables/scripts to my path.
So i just added one line to my ~/.profile:
PATH=$PATH:/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program

Now, if i do:
echo $PATH

I get:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/www/htdig/bin:
/usr/lib/java/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/usr/lib/qt/bin:
/usr/share/texmf/bin:.:/work/debin:/work/bin:/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program.

And swriter, and soffice and all other things work.

Didn't notice at first that you said there was something about display error.

Post error message, please.
(sometimes the problem "unable to open graphical display" is because you do it as root and not as user.)
