Slackware- Help installing LibreOffice


I decided to open a new thread about this because is a lot to post and its getting messy in the other one (title "..software")

I am trying to install LibreOffice on Slackware.

I downloaded:

Code:
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/4.0.2/rpm/x86_64/LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_rpm.tar.gz
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/4.0.2/rpm/x86_64/LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_rpm.tar.gz.asc
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/4.0.2/rpm/x86_64/LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_rpm_helppack_en-GB.tar.gz
But I got the Build file from:

PHP Code:
http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.0/office/libreoffice.tar.gz
on http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.0/office/libreoffice/
which is for  libreoffice (3.6.4
Now where I am:

I modify libreoffice.SlackBuild from the 3.6.4

Code:
You can fine the modification here
And the original can be evaluate here
If you are following you need to rename the files to:

Code:
LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_rpm_helppack_en-GB.tar.gz
LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86_rpm_en-GB.tar.gz
Now the output to run the Slackbuild file:

Code:
This output can be found here
Now if you look at the output file end it give me some Warning message. How can I eliminate them? It need to be able to see the help files. Do you know how to add them to the build script?

The easiest way to run the latest LibrOffice on Slackware 14.0 would be to just download the Slackware packages from AlienBob and install them: http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/s...s/libreoffice/

Yes but there is not the packages if not the ones after build, right?

I am trying to learn slackware so I guess is a good exercise to learn to create Build files. If I would have the easy way I would have stay in my Ubuntu boot. ;-).

I think I am not far could you please help I just need to add the help files but also looking at the file while I was creating this post it used some files called en-US I am not sure if I will need the en-US files?

LibreOffice of SlackBuilds.org is not a common build. It is a repackaging of a pre-packaged and pre-compiled application. It is not really good if you want an example of how to make Build files.

The warnings you refer to are cosmetic only and should not be a problem. Have you tried to install the resulting package and test if it works?

Hi PeterUK,

If you are interested in learning about slackbuilds, can I suggest that you look through the slackbuilds.org templates page?It helped me understand several aspects of such things that had been a bit unclear:
