PostPosted: Sun 18 Mar 2012, 20:33    Post subject: libreoffice update  

Playdayz,

Any chance you could upload the most recent libreoffice .sfs file (maybe the last stable 3.4+ or the new 3.5 version) to the ibiblio repos for lucid? While 01micko has created the get office pet, it is advised that we not attempt to run it on a USB install. The libreoffice version in the repos (3.3.1) has not been updated in over a year, and for many, this office suite is becoming a crucial bit of work. I know it's here or there on the forum, perhaps, but it's always nice to have it in the "official" channel. If possible, thanks so much.

rerwin, playdayz, et al.,

Not sure this is what you intended, but I attempted to use your new Cumulative patch-2 pet (which includes a broadcom fix ). Did a new install, broadcom bcm4311 found and installed through SNS. Can do this, sometimes, on a first boot, though it is erratic. Then, ran your fix, and created the new savefile and rebooted. On reboot, wifi light is off, and SNS can not find the broadcom driver. Tried again, created new savefile, then rebooted, and then ran the fix. On reboot, driver again not found. This is for a broadcom bcm4311 in a Dell Latitude.

Have no problem with finding and creating a connection in all Lucids up to 525. With 528, 528v4 and Three Headed Dog, it's been very hit and miss, and the driver if found and applied on the first boot, usually won't survive a second. Usually doing an install to a ext2 partition on a USB flash drive. Please let me know what else I can try, or what you need me to report.

thanks so,
cowboy
cowboy,
I am surprised to not see any more info on this problem. In case you were not aware of what to expect, I will describe it here. The new driver creates an "eth" device instead of wlan0. When the new driver is loaded, the open-source driver (b43) will not be loaded and will not create a wlan0.

If wlan0 was not there, then the new driver must have loaded. You should see a new device, probably eth1. You should open SNS and set up that device, as you originally did for wlan0. Then, when you reboot, SNS should find the new eth1 (or whatever).

If it does not work out that way, please run pmodemdiag and post/send its output file, so that can see why. Maybe there is another tweak to be made to the "magic" logic. I would like to resolve this soon, so playdayz can confidently release a new "testing" ISO with the updated proprietary driver.

Thanks for your help.
Richard

rerwin,

will run this test on 528 setup this evening, and will PM you results of the pmodemdiag. Thanks for your efforts regarding this troublesome broadcom setup.

Subject description: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=76866
 

It appears that when saving a session on a USB drive to ext3 filesystem and encrypting the data, the USB becomes unable to boot.

(See thread in Subject Line)

Otherwise, a very clean, super-fast and responsive interface ... a keeper!

OK. It will be a few days though. I haven't done it since the Get Libre is installed in Lucid's menu and it could always be updated but what you say makes sense.

Libre Office 3.5.1

Fast download -> http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/LibreOffice-3.5.1-en_US-2.sfs

Ibiblio -> ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/LibreOffice-3.5.1-en_us-2.sfs

This is the latest Libre Office--the same as the Get Libre Office menu item downloads. There was a bug in the first version posted a few hours ago--the printeradmin menu item was wrong. I took the opportunity to have the Libre programs open without displaying the logo because I think that is slightly faster.

Here is a pet that will integrate LibreOffice as the default word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, and draw programs. It will do two things: 1) the desktop icons will open LibreOffice programs and 2) clicking files with appropriate extensions/mime types will open LibreOffice programs (such as .docx will open Libre Writer). Of course, LibreOffice must be installed.

Abiword RTF

This makes Abiword default to saving in RTF format instead of abw. The reason is that once too often Abiword saved a file in abw and then refused to open it.

This works with the Abiword 2.8.6 that is default in Lucid (which is still the official stable release of Abiword).

After applying the pet there should be a file named /usr/share/abiword-2.8/system. profile, and it should contain DefaultSaveFormat=".rtf" (By changing the DefaultSaveFormat=".rtf" to DefaultSaveFormat=".doc" it is possible to have Abiword save by default in doc format.)

That's weird majorfoo. I just retested on a fresh boot. Did you restart Abiword after applying the pet? Are you using a different language than default? Had you opened a file that was in another format? After applying the pet there should be a file named /usr/share/abiword-2.8/system. profile, and it should contain DefaultSaveFormat=".rtf" I hassled with this for a couple of hours yesterday, so I probably don't understand it all.

(By changing the DefaultSaveFormat=".rtf" to DefaultSaveFormat=".doc" it is possible to have Abiword save by default in doc format.)

Problem solved - I am running Abiword-2.9.0-lucid52.pet. The Rtf pet created a Abiword 2.8 folder in /usr/share containing a single entry = system.profile

I changed the system.profile in Abiword 2.9 and all is well.
Thanks for your quick response.

Playdayz,

Just downloaded and installed Libreoffice 3.5.1. Up and running with no problem - menus, etc all there. Also, the pet to integrate Libreoffice is a fine idea - can't tell you how many times I've wished for this capability.

You've made the Lucid line a stable yet responsive and evolving operating system. Thanks for everything.
