Probably not were to post this question but.
./configure on OOsource.rc3 does not provide a --disable_pam type switch. Not really an issue if you are making a rpm package as those distros utilize pam. The question is the biniaries being installed by rpm2tgz are built with pam 'support' which we (slackers) don't use, so is this really a stable build for us to use? Might this be part of why non-root users can't start OO?

Appreciate your help in understanding why this is a non issue besides well it just works.

I use Staroffice from Sun...and it's free for students. I believe you can download it at (you may have to register first):


https://sdlcweb1a.sun.com/ECom/EComA...E92883C97362A1

There are a lot of options that Staroffice has that Openoffice does not. I use Staroffice everyday for presentations, word processing (newsletters), and personal finance on spreadsheets.

Cheers

It does have the commands to create the symlinks however they assume that OpenOffice is installed in /opt/openoffice.org2.0.0 where in fact it's installed in /opt/openoffice.org2.0

The following are the changes I made to the slackbuild

Code:
  # Remove all the incorrect symlinks
  rm $PKG/package/usr/share/applications/*
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/printeradmin.desktop
openoffice.org-$VERSION-printeradmin.desktop
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/base.desktop openoffice.org-$VERSION-base.desktop
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/calc.desktop openoffice.org-$VERSION-calc.desktop
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/draw.desktop openoffice.org-$VERSION-draw.desktop
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/math.desktop openoffice.org-$VERSION-math.desktop
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/impress.desktop
openoffice.org-$VERSION-impress.desktop
  ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/writer.desktop
openoffice.org-$VERSION-writer.desktop
  # ln -sf /opt/openoffice.org$VERSION/share/xdg/printer.desktop openoffice.org-$VERSION-printer.desktop

  # Replace the binaries in /usr/bin - correct link to file
  cd $PKG/package
  rm $PKG/package/usr/bin/*

  cat << _EOF_ > $PKG/package/usr/bin/openoffice.org-2.0
#!/bin/sh
exec /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice "\$@"
_EOF_

  cat << _EOF_ > $PKG/package/usr/bin/openoffice.org-2.0-printeradmin
#!/bin/sh
exec /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/spadmin
_EOF_
slackbuild then installs openoffice correctly.

I had the same problem, but it was because I forgot to install
openoffice.org-core03u-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm, because i only see
openoffice.org-core03-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm (note the 03u)
Where is also a 04u and 05u packages ...

I don't have KDE (nor gnome), and it works very well.
I hope it will be simple for you too.

I download the Slackware tgz version of OpenOffice 2.0 from LinuxPackages.net and used used pkgtool to install it just now. It seems to work great although I have only been using it for a few minutes so far. After I installed it, each program was listed with icons under the Office portion of K Menu. This is actually a different package than the one that amwink mentioned on page 2 of this thread. A slightly different and probably better version of the OpenOffice 2.0 tgz file was posted later that same day and the link to previous version was killed. Here is a link to the later package:

http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=7951

LinuxPackages.net always gives various choices of where to download each package. When I first downloaded the package from New York Internet the file was only about 16Mb in size. Several other people on LinuxPackages.net also complained about the small 16MB version of that they downloaded from New York Internet. I then tried downloading from Tupelo and got the full 102Mb version instead. Someone else also said he finally got the full 100+ Mb version when downloading from Tupelo instead. It took about 10 hours for me to download it on my 26.4K dial-up Internet connection. I installed it on Slack 10.2 and it seems to be working great so far.

I am really looking forward to using the new stand-alone OpenOffice Base program which has an interface that looks much like MS Access. I am a member of a small 100 person club and for several years have been using Microsoft Access 2000 to keep the membership records and print the mailing address labels. I had been using the Codeweavers CrossOver Office version of Wine to run Access 2000 under Slackware. That worked OK but, I may start using OpenOffice Base instead. The user interface looks very similar to MS Access. Several years ago I used OpenOffice Writer to do the 2-page club newsletter which was in multi-colum format with photos and clipart.

A slight problem with the package

After having used the Slackware tgz version of OpenOffice that I downloded from LinuxPackages.net I have noticed one slight problem. The programs themselves seem to be working perfectly so far but when I exit from KDE I get some error messages afterwards. I have noticed that the error messages only occur when exiting KDE after I have been using OOo Writer or OOo Calc (or possibly other OOo programs). I have always had the Slackware 10.2 inittab file set to runlevel 3 and when I exit KDE it exits to the command line interface and see the error messages at that time. I am guessing that the OOo 2.0 package is probably what caused the error messages when exiting although I can not say for sure when the error messages first started. Here are the error messages:

Kio (KdirWatch): WARNING: Kdirwatch:: removeDir can't handle 'Office/kword.desktop'

frank_endres and others:

So I install the latest OpenOffice.org. When I try and start the thing
I get the following

bash-3.00$ /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/javaldx: error while loading shared
libraries: libuno_sal.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory
/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: libvcl680li.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory

If I go "ldd /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin" I get a heap of
"not found"s.

users@openoffice.org where unable to provide any help and I haven't read anything here that tells me how this problem might be fixed.

I can't for the life of me figure this one out. I am going nuts. Sorry, gone nuts.

Help. Please.

Fogwatch.

Download/install the package from www.linuxpackages.net . I did that, ran installpkg on it, and no problems.

OK, I'll do that and stop going nuts.

It's a bit difficult squishing 109MB down my winmodem, but I'll do it. Sounds uncomfortable doesn't it.

The sound your head makes squishing up against the wall doesn't sound good either...lol

These files are in /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/. So maybe adding that to /etc/ld.so.conf would help.
Code:
# echo "/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/" >> /etc/ld.so.conf
# ldconfig
Cheers, Leon.

LJSBrokken and cwwilson721

I fired up my kerosene powered ppp-go -d and obtained openoffice.org-2.0.1-i586-1kjz.tgz, installed it and hey presto, OOo2 works. I was beginning to wonder. Thanks cwwilson721.

LJSBrokken, this is only what I recall happening, but my memory is not that bad. To install OOo2 I:
Code:
$ tar -zxvf OOo_2.0.1_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
$ cd OOA680_m1_native_packed-1_en-US.8990/RPMS
$ rpm2tgz *.rpm
$ rpm2tgz desktop-integration/openoffice.org-freedesktop-menus-noarch.rpm
# installpkg *.tgz
# exit
$ /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/javaldx: error while loading shared
libraries: libuno_sal.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory
/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: libvcl680li.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory
I seem to recall having a look for libuno_sal.so.3 and did not find it. I am happy to leave that one unexplained.

A good place to look for slackware packages is www.linuxpackages.net.

Also, if you compile a source, get checkinstall, run that after your 'make', then run 'installpkg' on the resulting package. That way, you can uninstall it. Also, then you can upload the resulting Slackware package to linuxpackages, and help the next poor guy to stop making the 'squishy' noises....lol

Glad I got you going.

Sometimes, easiest is best......

If I may, let me go back a bit... I'm a Newbie in somewhat over my head. I'm so new, I'm still poking at things to see how they wiggle.

when I open up Konsole in order to install OpenOffice 2.0.2 (regardless of download site / packaging), I get the following error:
-bash: installpkg: command not found

A) What am I doing?
B) What am I doing wrong?
C) What should I be doing instead?

Slackware 10.2

Many many thanks,
Viną
