Thread: Libre Office?

  1. #1

    Default Libre Office?

    Anyone have any luck installing libre office?

    I downloaded it, is the intent that you just install all of the RPMs in the RPM directory? There isn't too much documentation yet.

    Figured it out. You just install ALL of the RPMs and the desktop integration rpm.

    Looks interesting. I'll give it a go in a virtual machine

    How to install:

    tar -xvf LO_3.3.0-beta1_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz

    cd to the newly created en-US/RPMS/ directory

    zypper install *.rpm

    Forgot one other thing:

    after you install all the RPMS in the RPMS directory cd to desktop-integration (within the RPMS directory) and issue the command:
    zypper install libreoffice3.3-suse-menus-3.3-9526.noarch.rpm

    Its not pretty and I haven't had much time to use it but it looks promising and I would like to see a branch away from Oracle.

    Should you uninstall OpenOffice first?

    Thanks
