Thread: LibreOffice 4.0 installation help

  1. #1

    Default LibreOffice 4.0 installation help

    I deleted all traces of LO 3.x from my OpenSuse machine and tried to install 4.0. The first half (main RPMs) went fine. But when I tried running the commands (via terminal) to install the desktop integration, it froze. I zapped it all and tried again, this time double-clicking on the desktop integration file instead of running it through the terminal. Got a couple of error messages saying it didn't work because the repositories already exist. So here are my questions: how do I know * which * repositories it means (it only showed some random tmp directory), etc. .... how do I continue from here? Please be gentle, I am still kind of a newb at repositories and using the terminal and such.

    Thank you.

    Let's start with some basic information:

    1. Version of openSUSE you are running

    2. Where you obtained the LibreOffice 4.0 files from

    3. What specific commands you have run

    4. The output (in CODE tags) of: zypper lr -d

    5. What desktop environment you're using

    @ekoblentz

    try, from a terminal, in the 4.0 RPM directory,

    rpm -Uhv --test *.rpm

    this will show you what is missing

    then search in yast program manager for the file needed,
    and install required package, then reboot and re-try the above

    when all dependencies are resolved,
    (100% success is achieved with rpm -Uhv --test *.rpm)

    run cmd

    rpm -Uhv *.rpm

    (if you only want to install one rpm replace *.rpm with the name of the package)

    Downloaded from libreoffice.org

    >> What specific commands you have run

    I followed the Suse-specific directions at Installation of LibreOffice 3.3 on Linux but I replaced the 3.x parts with the correct file name.

    4. The output (in CODE tags) of: zypper lr -d

    this will show you what is missing
    It says I have 100% (which makes sense (at least in my primitive understanding of such things) because the installation didn't go awry until I tried the desktop integration step.)

    When I try running the Suse LO desktop integration file, first I get this:

    [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.HEsyfA] Repository already exists.

    And then this:

    failed to install file: [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.HEsyfA] Repository already exists.

    And then this:

    two ways to proceed of many,

    safest: search for the desktop integration package in yast, then delete it.
    reboot and try your install again.

    other:
    from a terminal use cmd:
    rpm -Uhv --force <package name>.rpm

    11.4 is old and EOL, and you are not using the Evergreen repos as
    necessary. I don't understand why you want in that situation to use such
    a recent LO, it may not work.

    Don't know what that means.

    Upgraded LO because I hoped it would contain a particular bug fix that's important to me. In 3.x, when you press CTRL-F to open the "find" toolbar, it stands to reason the toolbar would go away when you press CTRL-F a second time. Sad to say that doesn't work. I use CTRL-F a lot, but I also like to maximize my writing space and minimize the clutter. So having this work correctly is important to me. I read (forget where) that it was a known bug to be fixed in 4.0.

    But .... now I have 4.0 working, thanks to the previous respondent ... and the bug still isn't fixed.
