Sub_title: manual installation to frugal Puppy in a variety of languages

Inspired by these posts


I have looked for a way to install Open Office directly from the OO website.
The positive result has been posted at the German forum
and is presented here in a translated version:

Step-by-step procedure:

1. First you need unrpm.pet from here
download and install.

2. OpenOffice is available in a variety of languages here
Version 3.3.0. is currently the latest.

3. Download the proper version in your language of choice to a directory outside the pupsave file.

4. Unpack tar.gz by clicking on it and following the procedure.

5. Open the resulting folder and open the folder DEBS/RPMS inside. Open a terminal here and input...

for f in *.rpm; do unrpm $f; done


for f in *.deb; do undeb $f; done

6. This will generate a new directory opt, with two OO folders inside.

7. Move these two folders to /mnt/home/openoffice.

8. The starters are in /mnt/home/openoffice/openoffice.org3/program and can be dragged to the desktop.

9. I couldn't find any icons inside the OO folders. You might still have OO icons from previous versions or copy them from here

Tested and worked in Luci256.

users that want use openoffice from folders, must keep in mind that this is possible only on ext filesystems, due to symlinks, while sfs can be used and mounted also on fat 32
replace .co.cc with .info to get access to stuff I posted in forum

Thank you for clarifying this Dingo.

Before the above posting I have tested it on an ext3 partition and it worked there.

Initiated by your comment, I have tried to copy the entire openoffice folder from the ext3 partition to a FAT32 partition and to a NTFS partition. Result:
FAT32 does not work. NTFS opens the program and a document. Reads and writes okay.

My intention was not to replace the SFS installation, but to give the user an independent possibility to download open office or libre office directly from the website.

Your link - while showing an impressive collection of OO-SFSs does not include their latest stable version 3.3.0.

But again, thank you for an important point.

Thx for making the thread

May I ask something? (noob alert : I never tried linux before)
I use puppy linux 5.25 on usb stick
trying your method step by step
Until I stuck on step 5

I opened the folder of the dicompressed file
Then I open console from the desktop, type the command line
But it said the file is not found

Sry if the question is too stupid, but please explain step by step
Since windows and dos is all I've ever learned Smile
