OpenOffice

Recommended Posts

In the Free-edition, they only included OpenOffice 1.1.5. With the PowerPack they included a 2.0pre-version for you on the DVD.

Why not use the stock OOo RPM's (which are inside the big tarball)?

There is even an RPM for Mandriva-menus, the most you can miss is some XYZ desktop integration and custom icons...

OpenOffice 2.0 is now available to club members:

 

If you are a Club member, simply visit the Mirror Finder

tool in the Download area of the Club, use the tool to add an urpmi

"Club software" media, and use urpmi or rpmdrake to install the

updated packages. Note that the updated OpenOffice.org packages are

named openoffice.org2, openoffice.org2-gnome, openoffice.org2-kde and

so forth. The previous OpenOffice.org 2.0 packages were named

openoffice.org-go-ooo, openoffice.org-go-ooo-kde and so forth, so you

may end up having both versions installed together. They will both

work in this case, but if you want to remove the older version to

save disk space, you may safely uninstall the openoffice.org-go-ooo

packages.

 

 

Don't know if the "official" Mandriva 2006 will be available for everyone else at some point.

sorry I dont understand. What is OOo RPM's?

 

The official download from openoffice.org

Basically it's the "generic" version of OpenOffice 2.0 rather than the one packaged for Mandriva by the Mandriva team.

 

 

Depending on your school of thought, it's a better thing to do or it's heresy.

http://download.openoffice.org/2.0.0/index.html

You can pick from there your OS, preferred language (not all languages supported yet, but you can install the english version and after that install you preferred language UI- more than fifty language UI's are currently available) and have more or less the Club Mandy RPM's.

Open Office 2.0 is available for ALL Mandriva users, not only club-members. Just download it from the mirrors. It is there since a long time now.

KDE and Gnome integrations are 100% okay. The only thing that is weird is that I don't have a german spellchecker (in 1.1.5, there is one and in Fedoras OOo 2.0, too). I do however have an austrian spellchecker but that doesn't help me a lot.... :unsure:

You can add spellcheckers/hyphenators/thesauruses by hand in the /share/dict/ooo directory and enable them by editing the dictionary.lst configuration file. No RPM is really needed.

I'm a club member and am using the 2006 PowerPack DVD. My DVD came with the 1.1.5 edition of OpenOffice.org.

 

Also, do I need to uninstall OpenOffice.org before installing the Mandriva version of OOo 2.0??

 

Many thanks to all,

 

Richard L.
