Problem installing LibreOffice (FreeBSD)

Postby orionus » Wed Oct 10, 2012 4:41 pm

I tried to install libreoffice with:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
cd /usr/ports/editors/libreoffice/ && make install clean
===>  libreoffice-3.5.6_1 Known as broken.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/editors/libreoffice.

I did also:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
cd /usr/ports/editors/libreoffice
# make LOCALIZED_LANG=fr install clean
===>  Installing for fr-libreoffice-3.5.6
===>   fr-libreoffice-3.5.6 depends on executable: libreoffice - found
===>   Generating temporary packing list
===>  Checking if french/libreoffice already installed
===>   fr-libreoffice-3.5.6 is already installed
      You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
      by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
      If you really wish to overwrite the old port of french/libreoffice
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/french/libreoffice.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/french/libreoffice.

How to start fr-libreoffice-3.5.6 if it is already installed?
can I have openoffice and libreoffice on the same system?

Thank you for your help and direction to solve my problem
Regards with FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE i386

Sorry, I'm not sure this is the best place to get help with BSD-flavor installs. I don't remember that it's come up before but I could be wrong there.

It should be no problem to install both LO and OOo; I know for sure that they use separate profile directories at run time, and as far as I know from OOo, it doesn't care where it's files are located; they all go together, not scattered in the usual system locations.

AFAIK, LibO do not offer a *BSD port. There are people working on a FreeBSD port for AOO

Apache OpenOffice FreeBSD porting status page

Considering the different licenses, I don't think there are many BSD developers interested on working on LibO...
There are two types of people: those who believe that there are two types of people and those who do not.

I have referred the OP to the Apache mailing lists, which are frequented by some BSD users. He has posted a similar query there (AOO related).
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.4 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
