    Question KOffice 2 in KDE 4.1

    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone know how to install the RC from KOffice without upgrading all KDE to 4.2? It's not in Extra apps nor Community repositories.

    Any possibilities? Didn't found it.

    11.1

    Why not update to 4.2?
    Because I had bad experiences using KDE4 Factory repos with 11.0. It made my system unstable and even stalled my system one day the update was so big that the download just took all the place in my root partition. I had to reinstall.

    Correcting bugs with updates everyday is not for me stability... For KDE 4.0 it was great but for now I'd like to wait for openSUSE 11.2, except if openSUSE creates a non-factory repo for 4.2, that doesn't change all the time.

    I would have thought this
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

    Would be fine for you. If you just update all your koffice. Otherwise you can download the source from kde.

    Ok, now that there's a stable 42 repository (at Index of /repositories/KDE:/42/openSUSE_11.1 ), Is there a way to install KOffice -- any version, I'll take 1.6 if I can find it -- without dragging in the unstable 4.3 or downgrading to the (buggy, in my experience) 4.1?

    Thanks,
    Shai.

    OK, I was looking for kword and missed the whole koffice 1.6 in the main repositories. My bad -- though I wonder why the kword package is named koffice-wordprocessing.

    My advice: upgrade to 4.2.4 from the KDE4:42 repos, then add the Community repo and install the kOffice packages from there.

    KOffice2 requires Qt 4.5. So or you upgrade to the (right now beta) KDE 4.3 or there is no KOffice2 available.

    To make it clear,
    you use KDE from KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop or KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop? Well, then KOffice2 is also available there.
    you don't? Then there is no KOffice2 for you.

    Yes, I figured as much. KOffice 1.6 will do for me, for now. I use KDE 4.2 from the repository I linked above (until lately, this was Factory, which means it did have KOffice, but now that it's stable, it doesn't).
