Debian file for Libreoffice


Hi,
From this website:
http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/l...3.3.2/deb/x86/

There are so many files, for English version, which file(s) to download?

All the files that are English will have "en". Such as "LibO_3.3.2_Linux_x86_helppack-deb_en-US.tar.gz" has "en-US" for English in the USA...

"en-ZA" = English South African
"en-GB" = English United Kingdom

After downloading the correct package you have to install, if you don't know how to do that feel free to email me and I will gladly help you, such as the other members of the forum.

Run any of these commands, assuming /usr/bin is in your path (it almost always is):

ooffice <---opens the suite
oomath
oocalc
ooweb
oodraw
ooimpress
oowriter


Why it doesn't appear in your menu will depend on what desktop environment/window manager you are using, but there should be a menu editor for adding it to your menu.

In the unzipped folder you will see another folder called something like "Desktop integration" (it will be the only other folder anyway) and within it there will be 1 deb file. Click on it and allow it to install with gDebi, that will give you your menu items.

If you are running Stable:
aptitude install openoffice.org

if you are running Testing or Sid:
aptitude install libreoffice
if you want the Quickstarter install libreoffice-gtk, libreoffice-gnome or libreoffice-kde depending on which desktop you are running.

No such folder.
Anyway, I decided to use software center to download Openoffice.
