Libre Office 3.3.0-rc3
Here they are: packages for the third release candidate of the upcoming LibreOffice 3.3.0.
They have been compiled from source, as opposed to repackaging RPM files. These packages are native Slackware stuff. If you are running Slackware with a non-english localization, you can additionally install an appropriate language pack. No dictionaries are included, get a dictionary for your language at http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/dictionaries .
You can find the Slackware LibreOffice package and language packs – and associated build scripts – at the usual locations:
The package has no further dependencies – a full Slackware 13.1 install (or -current) is all.
Search for the previous posts that I wrote on this blog about LibreOffice if you are interested in building these from the sources yourself… it is not a trivial task.
- If your extension manager refuses to start, or the list of installed extensions is empty, and you are unable to install any new extensions, then try removing the (likely corrupted) extensions database – they will be re-created when you start a Libreoffice application the next time:
$ rm -r ~/.libreoffice/3/user/extensions
- If you notice that your LibreOffice menu entries no longer work and you are even missing the LibreOffice Writer menu entry, then you should upgrade to my re-built packages for version 188.8.131.52 (they have “2alien” as the build number). The menu entries in the first build were broken because the LibreOffice program names have changed between RC2 and RC3 (“oowriter” has been renamed to “lowriter” and so on).
