Which packages for me?

Postby Connor84 » Tue Dec 05, 2017 9:17 am

I would like to install everything that OOo has to offer on Fedora 27. There are over 40 different rpms from openoffice-4.1.4-9788.x86_64 to openoffice-xsltfilter-4.1.4-9788.x86_64. I don't know the differences between them. Which ones do I need to install, to do everything OOo has to offer an English-speaking non-business user?

G'day, and welcome to the community forum.

Install all of them! And you will find there is a directory in the tarball with a name like desktop-integration. You will need to install one of the files there to give you menu options for AOO, but I'm not sure which one you want for fedora, possibly the free desktop option.
