alienbob's libre office/slack64 current


running slack 64 current here.
Alien bob's libre office current_x64 package: libreoffice-5.2.0-x86_64-1alien.txz, dated 5 august 2016

opening localc (spreadsheet) fails & throws:

Component cannot be loaded, possibly broken or incomplete installation.
Full error message:

loading component library <file:///usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/../program/libsclo.so> failed.

****

On my system (updated to the latest current, yesterday via slackpkg) I have libsclo.so in:

/usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/libsclo.so

****

PS- thanks to alien for all the great builds & the time required to maintain them all these years.
The savings over the years in build time is incalculable
Maybe that doesn't get said often enough.

I just checked... I have the same error. My system is running current with the latest updates also...

I plan to uninstall and reinstall to see if that fixes anything. I will report back in a few minutes.

already tried it

reinstall was the first thing I tried, so as not to spam needlessly.

still not working.

the only constant is change.

I am getting the same thing. Could possibly have something to do with this?:

Code:
d/python-2.7.12-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Compiled using --enable-unicode=ucs4.
  The upstream default for Python Unicode is ucs2, but ucs4 is more widely
  used and recommended now.  Any Python scripts or binaries that use UCS-2
  will need to be recompiled.  These can be identified with the following
  grep command:  grep -r -l PyUnicodeUCS2 /usr 2> /dev/null

All other components of the suite open normally.

Not sure what the connection to python might or might not be.

Very good. Well I just reinstalled before I read your post and yes it is still not working

When I run that command above I get the following:

I'm going to set up a fresh clean install on my test rig and compile libreoffice from Eric's repo. Maybe it'll fix it, maybe not. At least I have a spare machine that I can try on.

I've run into the error as well. I bet its because of this:

"d/python-2.7.12-i586-1.txz: Upgraded.
Compiled using --enable-unicode=ucs4.
The upstream default for Python Unicode is ucs2, but ucs4 is more widely
used and recommended now. Any Python scripts or binaries that use UCS-2
will need to be recompiled. These can be identified with the following
grep command: grep -r -l PyUnicodeUCS2 /usr 2> /dev/null"

The packages on slackbuilds work by the way.

One repackages the official binary and the other compiles it from source.

LibreOffice Calc is dependent on Boost. The repackaged version uses a bundled version. AlienBob's uses the system version. BLFS has some info regarding it:

Hello,

Just for fun, you can get it to work as below :

1. download boost 1.59 from slackware64-14.2 :

Code:
$ wget ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/linux/distributions/slackware/slackware64-14.2/slackware64/l/boost-1.59.0-x86_64-1.txz
2. install boost-1.59 in /opt/boost159 :
Code:
$ installpkg --root /opt/boost159 boost-1.59.0-x86_64-1.txz
3. run localc with LD_LIBRARY_PATH pointing to boost-1.59 libraries :
Code:
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/boost159/usr/lib64 localc
--
SeB
