Linux dependencies

Issues with installing under all Linux Distributions

Linux dependencies

Postby 000 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 3:00 am

Is there a list somewhere (searched for one but couldn't find it) of shared libraries (ie. dependencies) that the Linux OpenOffice binaries are linked against (so that I know what other programs I have to install in order to run OpenOffice)?

Thank you in advance.

What distribution and version of Linux are you planning on using?

My Slackware, for example, has no dependency issues when installing AOO.

My experience, using Xubuntu 18.04, was that I downloaded the deb version from the download page (linked off the OpenOffice icon at bottom right of Forum window). Expand that file, then in a terminal do

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt purge libreoffice*


to remove all traces of LibreOffice. If you do not wish to do this, then read no further.

Then
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
cd ~/Downloads/en-US/DEBS
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i *.deb


the en-US portion of the directory path may differ according to the language version you downloaded.

I cannot recollect that I had to download anything else to satisfy dependencies.

RoryOF, it would be wise to post those instructions in the wiki. It works fine in Xubuntu 16.

It had been already, perhaps for an older version of OOo.
AOO 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).

Rory, thank you for clarifying.. That was the procedure I was missing for my installation, as well.
