Ohh, another alluring package from ptitSeb. B)

Just installed it. Looks really good and starts/run faster than I thought. LibreOffice rocks!

Thanks again. :)

PS: Regarding other languages. If you make a multi-language package, please also provide a smaller english-only package.

Very nice!  Thank you.

Is there any way to make the toolbar icons smaller?   I looked through the options but have yet to find a way.

The standard GTK open/save dialogue boxes are taller than the screen on my pandora.   *makes mental note to look for a way to adjust that*   Selecting the "Use LibreOffice dialogs" option under Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> General, results in dialogue boxes that fit nicely on the screen.

Might I suggest adding additional 'Application' entries to the PXML so that individual applications can be launched directly?

Opening an odt file does NOT cause it to crash like Abiword. Thank you. :)

Damn, Seb, you're unstoppable! Was hoping someone would have a crack at this.Only had a brief play, but seems pretty solid. I'll play around with the toolbars to see if some screen real estate can be clawed back.

Nice!

Great.

How long does it take to compile ?

Hope it will run on Slackware ^^.

EDIT:

Argh, segfault

I assume the same trick will have to be done so it work on Slackware... I'll try that, but that will not be easy, LibreOffice store every thing inside "lib"... But I will create a libs to put the "system" libs, and change the lauch script accordingly. Also, I have to alter "soffice", the launcher, to add the LD_LIBRARY_PATH export,

If you want to try rebuild the PND yourself, just remove the libs in the lib/ folder. Thoses are the ones I added. I think libstdc++ is the one causing segfault on slack, but I'm not sure.

It took 3 full days to compile, and many gigabytes ! A huge beast. I'm adding languages now. I hope it should be done quickly, so I'll repackage "compatible slackware" I hope for build 2.

I'll take a look.

So java was needed ?

I was still on stable versions, so maybe java is now wiped out from 4.X.

Fantastic news - once again well done ptitSeb! On the subject of supported languages: personally I am happy to work with the English-only version. Maybe language support could be split in order to reduce file size; e.g. package 1: en, de, nl; package 2 fr, it, sp, pt etc.

GREAT.

Why did I use 30 MB of my SD for PanDebian then?.

Go for Slackware as well :D .

I still like the idea of making a language pack installer PND, which dumps the language files for the language you want into appdata...

Mine is:

chown -R root:root ./pnd/
find ./pnd/ \
 \( -perm 777 -o -perm 775 -o -perm 711 -o -perm 555 -o -perm 511 \) \
 -exec chmod 755 {} \; -o \
 \( -perm 666 -o -perm 664 -o -perm 600 -o -perm 444 -o -perm 440 -o -perm 400 \) \
 -exec chmod 644 {} \;
 

pnd_make.sh -p libreoffice-slackware.pnd -d pnd/ -x pnd/PXML.xml -i pnd/icon.png
