Subject description: Not reccommended for Frugal installs. (Huge Size)
 

WARNING: This .pet is MASSIVE! It is reccommended ONLY if you have a full install and dont want to mess with trying to install it with the .sfs package(s). The .pet is 157mb in size, and is approx 380mb installed. I know several people have been asking for this packaged as a .pet, so here it is. I will try to create a .pup for those of you that asked for that as well.

OpenOffice3.pet

md5sum: 3ee313f9a0839c7b776e73024c8c2cdd OpenOffice3.pet

Well, you could use it in a frugal install if you (1) have at least 1 GB of RAM and a correspondingly big pup_save file, and (2) don't mind having a huge "OO" tail wagging a little Puppy. Laughing

Thanks Evil, this sure was easier than dealing with all the file movement in a full install.

However, the .pet overwrote the pinboard, apparently without backing up the original. So when I rebooted, all I got was a grey screen and the office icons.

When I used the .sfs I just didn't copy the pinboard files. That kept the desktop and I just added my own shortcuts later. I'd recommend that be the default option in the .pet as well.

Thanks!

Does that mean it will not work on my frugal install on a PC with only 256mb ram?

I followed my nose and sniffed out the link.

http://www.leprichaunproductions.com/evil20071/pet_packages/puppy_4

OpenOffice3.pet is in that directory.

Many thanks Evil for this .pet of a very popular piece of software. I am in the process of moving all of my clients (mostly charities, social enterprises, free cybercafe's etc) over to a dingo based setup.

Ive made a request that this is added to the puppy wiki, and to the petget installer from the desktop. May I suggest changing the title of this thread to "Openoffice 3 for puppy linux as .pet " as it will appear in google searches much more prominently.

Just a note, after I installed this .pet, there was a complaint of missing dependencies, but it seems to run in any case. Its difficult to cut and paste from the .pet install confirmation screen. They were mostly about python in the "/opt" directory". It also correctly put the icons in the correct catagories in the start menu (though not in all the ones mentioned in the .pet installer confirmation screen!)

I notice with som of MU's massive .pups (like xampp) he included an install script that ran instead of the default installer. This checked for available space and gave the user a chance to resize their pup_save file before installation. This isnt exactly cutting edge minority software, so we should make things go as smoothly as possible.

Im wondering as well, openoffice says it needs JAVA for all of its features to work. Does this version have JAVA installed or have they dropped that requirement (openoffice is sponsored by SUN MICROSYSTEMS who also do Java). Does this mean my facebook chat and notifications will work now too? lol

In any case, not wishing to be un-constructively critical, many thanks for this much-needed .pet

edit: have just noticed that that the automatic update routines do not work. I dont know why that is. Perhaps it could come with this option switched off by default unless it can be made to work that is.

The requirement is still there. I don't recall what features offhand use Java. The standard Windows installer for OO3 includes the JRE. I don't think Evil20071's PET includes it, but the 1.6.01JRE is also available as a PET in the same repository as the OO3 pet.

I just noticed that something got wrong in the menu entries update, and now my program list is almost blank (only the Desktop entry is still here.).
I hope this is just a problem of mine, otherwise there must be something wrong somewhere.
Anyway, I never used that thing. What I needed was OO.
