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.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 - Slackware 14.2 - 64 bit
LibreOffice - Slackware 14.2 - 64 bit
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.4 - Windows 7 Virtual machine

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 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.

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.
