created sfs file works fine--thanks again, 01micko! (precise 561 fwiw. LO files made under it using your program have been documented to work in 5.5, 5.6, 5.7 (upup), 531 slacko, 5.5 slacko, wheezy---). really cool.

here's a shot of the weirdness:



Laughing .. an amusing conflict.. anyway I'll fix it, just a matter of making sure the temp files are unique.

micko, i was wondering if you could modify the script so that it doesn't necessitate the unloading of the previous sfs/the uninstallation of the previous pet. the temp file weirdness actually brings a little suspense to the build process so you may want to leave that part unchanged.

Very Happy

Well, the feature of stopping the program if libreoffice is loaded is so users won't jam up their system and make a mess, however I suppose I could make it more developer friendly. I'll see what I can do.. perhaps add a CLI switch. The last thing noobs need is another confusing gui option.

after requesting the change i figured it was there to keep people from having things pile up, but yeah, the process can pretty much choke the machine (if i understand you correctly).

the interface is very straightforward. you can add a "be sure to unload your sfs before you load this one" or a similar pop-up. and maybe, "your system may be floundering about for the next few minutes if you know you don't want to build in ram..." i have one machine that doesn't notice the process, one that can do nothing else during it, and a 2 gig machine that makes me wonder, how much ram do you need to build in ram and what are the advantages? (speed, i'm guessing. usb installs, the first page informs me...2gig...or minimum of one and one...).

anyway, thanks again.

Thank you for the script to get and make a sfs for LibreOffice. I took your pet version 0.29 and extracted the script. I used the script with Fatdog64 700 beta2 to create a sfs for the latest 64 bit English version (4.3.4) of LibreOffice.
If anyone is interested, the sfs can be found here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/contrib/sfs/700/
Thanks again for the great tool.

Heya 01Micko! Smile

I downloaded get_libreoffice-0.30.pet from this thread because 0.29 is giving me an odd error message lately:

[Failed to download . Please try again later]

Suggestions, notes, on the script get_libreoffice-0.30.pet.

1. Availability. While script get_libreoffice-0.30.pet is considered a beta, I suggest adding it to the first page of the thread. The impression I got by not seeing it as part of the list is that there is no version later than get_libreoffice-0.29.pet.

2. Locales. Is there something I could modify in the script itself to allow me to get LibreOffice under the locale en_CA.UTF-8? A noticeable difference between 0.29 and 0.30b is the disappearance of the locales choice. Note: I can right-click the ruler bar to switch in to cm, however settings in documents created in Windows run into some interesting oddities! Very Happy Tab demarcations done in the metric system end up with 3 digits (0.374) that LibreOffice doesn't actually support.

LibreOffice 32-bit version 4.4.1. Happy to answer any questions if something above doesn't have enough details. LibreOffice_4.4.1_Linux_x86_deb.tar.gz was once downloadable but no longer is, it seems.

EDIT: I've downloaded LibreOffice_4.4.1_Linux_x86_deb.tar.gz and LibreOffice_4.4.1_Linux_x86_deb_helppack_en-US.tar.gz. Is there a set of commands to convert these into .SFS files myself at the command prompt?

01micko is taking a seachange at the moment.

Attached below is a script from Fatdog-700, written by jamesbond, that worked for me. I was in FD700 though but it may work in other distros. Report how you get on.

Heya Smokey01!

Thank you so much for your speedy response. It is appreciated. I will download it immediately and post successes, etc.

EDIT #1: hehehe, the script halts very early on. It looks for a file called /bin/dash. Wondering what the heck "dash" was, I did a search under PupControl's Add/Remove Programs. Having found nothing that resembles that name I opened the script in LeafPad and saw this:

Code:
#!/bin/dash

and I just had to chuckle.

Correcting it to #!/bin/bash the script seems to be working just fine. More to follow.
_________________

EDIT #2: The script was written for 64-bit LibreOffice. My copy of Puppy is still running in 32-bit.

I've edited the LibreOffice site references in the script to reflect x86/ instead of x86_64/. Results to follow. (If this works, I'll post the corrected script as a downloadable option).
_________________

EDIT #3: So, it seems dash is a scaled down version of bash (news to me). So, I'm going to install dash and see if this helps with the execution of the script.

The script fails to execute step #8:

Code:
# 8. extract package
for p in $MAIN_PKG $HELP_PKG $LANG_PKG; do
   echo $(eval echo `gettext 'Extracting $p'`)
   tar -xf ${p}.${PKGFORMAT}
done


I imagine this is the same as running tar -xf on each of the 4 downloaded packages, so I can do this manually.

PostPosted: Fri 03 Jul 2015, 18:16    Post subject: get_libreoffice-0.30.1  

LibreOffice 4.4 requires a change to the versions of get_libreoffice posted in this thread. I discovered that shinobar created a 0.29.2 version that provides that change. The problem is that what previously was in /usr/bin (& /share) moved to /usr/local/bin (& /share) in the 4.4 series. Shinobar's fix is to move those /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/share components back to /usr/bin and /usr/share.

In building the "plus" versions of Lucid Pup 5.2.8.7 I discovered the need for a tool to build a "libreoffice*.files" file for the /root/.packages directory so that remasterpup2 would copy the files in /root, /etc and /var into the remastered puppy. The tool is "sfs_filelist", to be run just before making a squash file from a directory, to add the ".files" file to that directory. It can also be used to build that file for an existing SFS file but places the ".files" file into the current .packages directory, in preparation for a remaster.

To make a version of get_libreoffice for everyone else to obtain libreoffice, I merged shinobar's and my additions into 01micko's get_libreoffice-0.30 to make get_libreoffice-0.30.1.

Here are the changes to 0.30:

Rerwin:

This worked very well but the menu icons/entries did not reflect in my Quirky April test. They do appear in /usr/share/applications so a simple drag and drop to the Desktop does the trick, nicely.

Thanks for this.
