Problem installing Open office 2.3.0 in SuSe using Yast


Hi I have just started this year using SuSe linux and I have a problem.

I got My SuSe 9.1 CD and Open Office.Org 2.0.2 CD early this year. I successfully loaded SuSe and got it to run alongside Win**** XP. I have been using Linux more often than i have the XP thing ( Actually Have to remember to log in lest i forget my password)

Any way Linux run very well and i have been using Open Office that SuSe gets shipped with. I wanted to try out OOo.2.0.2 but when i tried installing it using YAST, i couldnt find where it installed it (or if it intalled at all )

So i uninstalled Open Office.org.1.1.0 that i got shipped with SuSe and then tried to re-install Open Office.org.2.0.2 again to no avail. So now i have neither in my computer. I went on to XP and installed the windowz version of Open Office and it runs very well.

This is an embarrasing situation I would appreciate a tutorial on this with some graphics if possible (alas! i am unimaginative). I would really love to start using Open Office where it belong in Linux.

Thanks!

There is no OOo 2.3.0. The latest is 2.0.2.

You need to extract the OOo 2.0.2 tarball, then change into the RPMS subdirectory and do
Code:
#rpm -Uvh *.rpm desktop-integration/*suse*

I assume you are using the .rpm files to install...

Does the rpm command complete without errors?

My install is in /opt---If I remember correctly, this was the default.

To find where it installed, just search for one of the run scripts---eg "swriter"

Hi guys.

Sorry our UPS Back-up at work was down yesterday so i could not check out the forum. i will try yor suggestions out tonight & give feed back on Monday.

I did find out from my IT Manager that i needed to change the saurce of installation in YAST to point to the location where i copied the rpm files to . I tried that and the rpm only installed SUse Menus.We are going to try and install it in his workstation and see i fhe got me the right package.

Thank you lots & talk to you later!

If you are not using GNOME, delete the openoffice.org-gnome-integration rpm because you won't need it and then rerun the commands above. If you are using GNOME, install gnome-vfs2 and then rerun the commands above.
