OpenOffice 4.1.0 (or earlier) SlackBuild


Is there are SlackBuild available for OpenOffice 4.1.0 that will install in /opt (not in the root tree as with SlackBuilds.org!)?

Or the same for OpenOffice 3.4.1 would be just fine.

Really kind of need to do both 64-bit (for me) and 32-bit (for somebody else) if that matters.

Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but would kikinovak's microlinux slackbuild work? Here's file listing of his openoffice package.
http://www.microlinux.fr/slackware/M...microlinux.lst

And here's SlackBuild http://www.microlinux.fr/slackware/M...ap/openoffice/

It's part of his great Microlinux

Edit: It's working for me. Anyway don't blame kikinovak if I gave misinformation and am using his package wrongly.

I'm currently migrating from OpenOffice to LibreOffice, as I find their stable 4.1.x branch perfectly suitable. Lots (!) of changes under the hood in my repo, I'll upload an enormous update batch in a few days.

Oh, well.

I'll give the X86 version a try on the new install of 32-bit 14.1 (with all the patches) and see.

Thanks.

Oh, sorry.
It seems to work for me when I don't download "Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.1_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz" but let the script download it from sourceforge. Maybe that works for you as well?

kikinovak: Yes, I have read about that on the other thread. I just thought about mentioning your package, as it seemed to me like it was doing what the OP is looking for.

Here's what I do:

Download the Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.0_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz (and/or the 64 bit version) from here http://www.openoffice.org/download/other.html

Extract that tarball into its own directory.

Move/copy the freedesktop rpm from that other directory to the directory with all the other rpm's.

Open a konsole and cd into the directory with all the rpm's.

As root, do
Code:
rpm2tgz *.rpm
Then do
Code:
installpkg *.tgz
The I normally do this
Code:
rm *.rpm
and then make a tarball of that directory of tgz packages and place it somewhere safe.

All the OpenOffice apps should now be on the kmenu in the 'Office' section and everything pretty much I think) is in /opt.

This is how I've been doing it for many years now and it has yet to fail me.

Took off the blinders, removed all remnants of OpenOffice (and some old LibreOffice stuff), did as you suggested, installed all of 'em, viola!

So all my 64-bit boxes are up to snuff and it's time to do my friend's updated-to-14.1 32-box and she will be a happy camper too.

I still have this warm place in my heart for the Apache Software Foundation and I'll stick with OpenOffice for the present.

This was just too danged easy.

Glad I was actually able to help someone for once instead of constantly asking for help and not being able to return the favors.

I've been running both Libre and Apache Open Office side by side. Been using Libre for forever but the AndrOpenOffice would display things a little different so I installed Apache in order to do a check every now and then and make sure my stuff looks clean in either version.
