Thanks mikeb, I had gotten libstdc++ updated, but not libart_lglpl. I am on my way to reboot and try--if it works you will probably hear my shout!

<Add> That was it!!!!! It looks like 3.01 is working 100% thanks to mikeb.

Here are my notes for whatever they are worth.
http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy400/KOffice_packages.rtf

Did you notice anything odd about kchart--in 4.00 it crashes when opening a template but it will work opening a file. Or do you notice anything you did that I didn't do? thanks much for your help--oh, and is the version you have for 2.1x the same now as the 3.01 version? best.

When i first tried kchart it took about 40 seconds at 100% but did render the barchart. But when I tried today it struggled again but no chart just menu and lines. I have noticed kde apps once configs are set in /root that's it....any system changes are ignored eg adding aspell. Also one running one application can affect another...all very interdependant. So perhaps when i first tried i had tested applications in a particular order.

On a more irksome note it seems kword (not just this package but in any distro) has a problem opening rtf / doc / abw and pdf with a table in.
Example ...make a table...save it in one of those formats...reopen it and it will be messed up...but open the saved document in abiword /epdf and everything is as it should be.


regards

Ok to post on a positive note I added k3b which increased the sfs by 2.5Mb including cdrdao and cheerfully erased and burnt an audio CD from mp3 Smile
Could be a worthwhile small addition.

Awesome Mike, k3b was the first linux program that really got my attention as a great one. Did it involve any more than just adding the program file + cdrdao?

BTW, the K-Office developers were really stressing to me to work with KOffice2. Adding programs in KDE4, they said, was as simple as adding kde-libs, kde-runtime, and the program, for instance, Koffice2. I tried and it wasn't that easy Wink But it should be easier than with KDE3 and K-Office 1.6.3.

What I think would be best would be to develop a basic kde pet or sfs (not to be confused with kde-base) that one could install and then add whatever programs one wanted as individual pets. thanks.

Anything with k3b in the name + cdrdao + tox2cue/toc2cddb + libmusicbrainz....
all stolen from the kde357.sfs for puppy.(and got the desktop running too with a bit of merging but thats another story ) So generally is quite a moduler setup...adding apps just like any other package for puppy.

I think Puppy's Office Software is fast, small (only 20MB) and beautiful but Koffice is 80MB. It made puppy linux to beige linux

psst i sneaked it down to 51MB inc k3b Very Happy
and puppy remains fast Wink

mike

ps
i tried having only kword/kpresenter/and the spreadsheet but saved only around 12MB as the core kde libs take quite a bit as does qt...but other apps can use qt once in there reducing their requirements .

Awesome mike, can we do something with it? I would be happy to host your sfs. Or if you can make a list of what you removed I will remove those things and repost the smaller version. I would like to do the same for the 4.00 version--I could do that if I had an sfs of yours or a list of the changes. Your sfs would be for 2.1x I think, but I am pretty sure I could look at that and know what to do for 3.01 and 4.00 (not much actually). I now think it might be possible to get a one size fits all sfs. Just let me know what would work best for you, thanks.

Well I was a bit naughty .... i simply removed all docs and unused locales.....could be an optional package.

I had done that to make a smaller download for a friend to test out .... all the functionality is the same as the original.

kchart.....update...

I tried the koffice in puppy 2.02...needed tls glibc but thats ok cause helps with newer wine versions........
But when i tried kchart it started up straight away....no messing.....the major difference is that 2.02 uses X11R6.

Just thought i'd lob that in there

Here's a 48MB pet in English only, http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/ttuuxxx/alphatesting/K-Office_400-english.pet
When I converted the sfs to a pet and installed it, the SFS was missing some Qt parts, Some critical KDE system links, Some plugins for word, and some libs and programs, I removed the compiling extras, some extra large icons, Locales, and spent Around 5hrs into this today. This is just the first testing model, I'll continue it this weekend if anything is missing. Installs and works fine on my pc, but I have the puppy devx installed which has qt parts and also the extra qt package from the puppy repo.
Maybe when I get home from work I'll try it Live. Anyways enjoy testing it.
Once its all good, which it could be, I'll convert it to a sfs also if people wanted and if thats ok with playdayz, I don't like to step on toes.

Well guys I tried the version I posted above and works, without anything else needed Smile
I also found a Lightweight project management program for KDE.
You need the Office installed to use it, this is like a addon on to Office.

Personal project management program with support for task lists and log books

Supports:

- Categorizing tasks into projects
- Viewing how much time you have left to complete a task
- Creating logs of completed tasks
- Scheduling followup tasks when a task is completed
- Scheduling tasks to start in the future

Took like 2 minutes to put together with the Ubuntu Gutsy kde repo
enjoy
