I couldn't get the OpenOffice sfs file to work with either NOP or DCL. Raffy mentioned this in another post for DCL. Does this have something to do with the fact that these use XFCE?

I like both of these puplets and would like to use them with the Open Office sfs.

It would be very appreciated if you could make a DCL OpenOffice edition downloadable?

Thanks, Brandon. No hurry.

But back to my original question...I'm just wondering why the Openoffice.sfs file doesn't work. It has worked for all of the puppy derivatives that I have tried except NOP and DCL (coincidentally these ones use XFCE). I find the Openoffice.sfs file very convenient. Once I download it to my hard drive, I can use it for any Puppy (excpet NOP and DCL of course)..much more convenient than installing everytime I try a new PUP without OO.

@drs, Brandon

Here is a fix to get OpenOffice 2.4.0 working in DCL-2008.

This fixes two things.

1. Overwrites broken symlinks in /usr/local/bin that where pointing to OO2.2 (@Brandon, these should be removed in future releases)
2. Overwrites the ".desktop" files in /usr/share/applications to match the (DCL2008) menu-categories.

You should see additions to your menu (added entries) and calling apps from the command line (scalc, swriter, soffice, etc.) should now work. If the menu does not change, you may need to log out and "xwin" back in.

I remember that I removed them, but must be I uploaded an ISO without them removed. Thanks for the fix JB4x4, As soon as I get some user to say it works I will add a How-to to my site.

Thanks, Brandon.
While you're on it, maybe you could use some of the backgrounds/wallpaper I specially made for the DCL OpenOffice edition, and use the attached logo to replace the xfce menu button image?

I do like the images, and Will post some of the wallpaper, but if the patch works, I don't see a reason to remaster DCL with Open Office, it would take my time and use a lot of bandwidth. If everyone uses the patch its a 1kb download, and everyone already has DCL and Open Office so it just connecting them.

I had a poll for DCL to decide what to add an everyone wanted Open Office but it ran slow on my P3 laptop so I desided on GOffice. I guess in DCL 2009 (coming in 6 months or so) I will use OO.
