LibreOffice 3.4

#1 Postby Jerry3904 » Mon Aug 29, 2011 4:49 pm

I just emailed Warren to ask about his plan on this, which he announced quite a while ago now. In the meantime, has anyone tried these directions:

Obviously need to change the sudo part, but it looks pretty easy...

Quicker than greased lightning, got this answer from Warren:
Hi Jerry,

I was ready to build 3.4.2 and then I noticed that 3.4.3 is suppose to
be released this week. So I'm waiting for that. I plan to build as
soon as it's debianized.

Cool. Sid only has 3.3.4 at the moment.

That is how I've been installing LO in M11 (with 'su' of course).

Yup, that appears to work without a hitch. Great, now I have LO 3.4.2

And you just rinse and repeat for all upgrades. Note: an upgrade from 3.3.x to 3.4.x (or 3.4.x to 3.5.x) will install duplicate packages (or better put a set of packages for 3.3.x as well as 3.4.x), but can easily be un-installed in synaptic by choosing the correct version (i.e. by choosing the libreoffice-core...3.3.deb and related .deb's).

The directions I linked to and followed started by removing the current installation with the command

Code: Select all

apt-get remove libreoffice-core
so there are no duplicates (that I can find).

I'm referring to when you install, say, LO 3.5 with that method described, you will have a set of LO 3.4 packages that remain with the prefix: libobasis3.4 (in synaptic) as well as the newly installed libobasis3.5 set of packages.

The removing of libreoffice-core packages as described in the article are referring the prepackaged packages of LO for that distro (i.e. Mepis, Debian, Ubuntu, etc. tend to use that package name).

I was unable to get the 3.4.2 to load. Downloaded and extracted both 64 bit files and I ran the command lines in the terminal and keep getting a no such file or directory message. Not sure what I did wrong. Do I need to be in root? Thanks
