Elsewhere is my question about 11.3. I have had to abandon that and 11.3 as my RAM is too small. Now, for the first time in many years, I find it necessary to extract specific data from received .pdf files. According to OpenOffice, editing of these files is only possible from version 3.2.
My concern is whether this later vesion will be compatible with 11.2. OpenOffice installed is
22.214.171.124-1.1.4-i586. The same question has been directed to their Forum.
I was unable to install directly - received error message
OO-org-ure=126.96.36.199 needed by 188.8.131.52-1.1.i586.
Same duplicated for components, org-filters, icon-themes-lib-corr, libs-xtern, libs-gui, l10n-extras, branding 184.108.40.206.3 and branding < 4.
So I wrote file to home, but now am unable to update with YaST.
Have tried procedures from OpenOrg without success. Get messages that commands are not known although thy are.
So now I am befuddled, bemused, confusd and know that I am a complete moron!
in yast install OpenOffice_org-3.2 It will resolve all the dependencies adding all the other packages related to this one. Anyway, you could add yourself OpenOffice_org-writer, calc, base, impress etc.
I seem to be halfway there. Loaded all that appeared applicable, but Office, Presentation and Spreadsheet do not load - get a flash of the loading page and it’s gone. Address Book, Personal Organiser, Information Manager and Document Viewer load and OK.
Maybe you could tell us first how much RAM you have, and what makes you think it’s a RAM issue?
Have you tried to start OO.o apps from a less resource demanding desktop environment, i.e. LXDE, Enlightenment or the like?
AFAIK OO.o 3.2 does not consume much more RAM than the one you have installed.
Installation looks fine - software installation shows all required as far as I can see. Address, Organiser, Kontact and Okular start and work fine. It is only Writer, Calc and Impress that do not load; Selection panel flashes on briefly an is gone. In all first 38 applications loaded.
Yes, installation looks fine.
Really I don’t know what else to do. Maybe more experienced users can help you.
If it’s a RAM issue, you can add an expansion card.
I’m sorry of not being able to help more.
That is vesion installed. For the first time i used command line to start and received: ‘/usr/lib/ooo3/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.40: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory’ Erroneously searching through Office, I finally realised that it was a shared library. Using YaST I checked installed and found libicuuc.so.42. I presume that is the problem. How to overcome it leaves me lost - again!
The OpenOffice guys seem indifferent - never reply.
