Installing Apache Open Office
« on: February 20, 2018, 09:39:11 am »
For a change, in stead of LibreOffice, I want to experiment with Apache Open Office but failed
how to do this. Is there a "how to" for Peppermint 8 ?
Thanks in advance.

And....yes, I am a Noob  :(

Grab the right version for your system here (should auto-detect which one in your browser):
https://www.openoffice.org/download/index.html

Then you can follow these instructions to install:
https://www.openoffice.org/download/common/instructions.html#linux-deb

Good luck  :)

Thanks murraymint for those links.
I managed to get the .deb packages installed following the instructions on the second link you gave (Linux DEB-based installation)
but I got stuck when trying to get point 4 working.
Installing the "desktop integration" (first have to navigate into that folder) and using dpkg : sudo dpkg -i *.deb
where the * .deb file name in that folder.
Doing so (in terminal) gives errors ( lot of text is produced by the terminal which I fail to recall).
But when I navigate to /opt/OpenOffice4/program/ and double click on "soffice" OpenOffice starts to run.
So the install failes on getting some link to the Peppermint desktop.
Would appreciate to get some suggestions here to get things right.

Did you have LibreOffice already installed before this?

Can you copy and post the error messages from trying to install the desktop integration?

Just double click on the openoffice4.1-debian-menus_4.1.5-9789_all.deb file to install it.

Though I should add that if you already have LibreOffice installed, that package won't install properly because it would overwrite stuff already installed by LibreOffice.

It's not a problem, just carry on below...



If you have both LO and OO installed and want the OpenOffice launcher to appear in the menu run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo /usr/share/applications/startcenter.desktop
when a BLANK file opens, make it read:-
Code: [Select]

@murraymint:

Your comment : "Did you have LibreOffice already installed before this?"
 did me again attempt to get that last step installed and this time I did have a close look
at the error message that terminal gave as response. And indeed it had something to do with the already installed LibreOffice.
So I completely uninstalled LibreOffice and after that tried to execute that last step again and now everything went well!!  :)
I now have OpenOffice installed and I can start it right from the Menu.
Many thanks for putting me on track with your comment.

@PCNetSpec:

"Though I should add that if you already have LibreOffice installed, that package won't install properly because it would overwrite stuff already installed by LibreOffice."

Well, as you can conclude from my comment above it does not overwrite the already installed LibreOffice stuff.
I read your response after I successfully installed OpenOffice, but anyway I take good notice what you gave me to do and write this down in my little "notebook"

P.S.
I did the LibreOffice uninstall part by part (first Writer then Math then everything else concerning Libreoffice).
Is there a way to do this all at once?

Yep:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*
that'll uninstall the entire LO suite.
