Sub_title: Need the actual pet file
 

I was wondering if there is a place where I can download a pet for LibreOffice. I eventually want all of my computers to have this but the one running Puppy needs a pet. I went to this page:

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/LibreOffice

but could not find the actual pet file to download. I got checksum downloaded and installed, though. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

Realistically, it would have to be a sfs file, not a pet, because LibreOffice is very big!
Several of us have tried to create a sfs file but failed to get it working.

I had succes with the second bèta of LibreOffice in Mijnpup
(http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60718)

This will work in LuPu 5.1.1

1 Download:
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/testing/3.3.0-beta2/rpm/x86/LibO_3.3.0_beta2_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz

2 Unpack the file on your harddisk (not in your puppy-safe-file) and unrpm the files.
(unrpm-pet: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27067)

3 Go to the new map "en-US/RPMS" and do this in a terminal:
Code:
for f in *.rpm; do unrpm $f; done

Wait a minute and a new map "opt" will be there with "libreoffice3" in it..

4 Make a symlink of the map "libreoffice3" to /opt
(To safe space in your safe-file)

5 Start Libreoffice with: /opt/libreoffice3/program/soffice
______________________

Edit There is also a .deb file of Libre. With that file you don't need the unrpm.pet and the code in step 3 is "for f in *.deb; do undeb $f; done"

I have working .pets and .sfs files for the latest OpenOffice and LibreOffice. Will post links as soon as I get hosting sorted. Menu entries are included.

Just wanted to say a quick thankyou for those instructions: especially the deb edit! That's just made my life a whole lot better and easier.

Is there a way for LibreOffice to recognize and use pps files that include sound?
