I installed the LibreOffice v4.4.3 (SFS) from page 1 this weekend on a fresh Puppy Slacko v5.7 build. Menu items for the programs were not created.

Uninstalled v4.4.3 then installed LibreOffice v4.4.1 (PET) from page 1. Menu items were again not created.

Uninstalled v4.4.1 then installed LibreOffice v4.2.5 from the Puppy Package Manager. Menu items were correctly created this time.

YMMV

No, I didn't. Get-libreoffice 0.30 worked as usual. I did have a small problem booting from CD in another machine, though: even if the computer had 4 GB of RAM, there was a message saying the application can't work in low RAM. A frugal install to a hard drive is required, that's why I can get LibreOffice from my computer even if my RAM is just 512 MB.

About the menu entries, typing fixmenus in a terminal window should do, or at least it does for Openbox. If they won't appear in the JWM menu, adding a category that exists in the JWM menu file to the .desktop files at /opt/libreoffice4.4/share/xdg could be a simple solution (to be applied in the LibreOffice packages).

EDIT
fixmenus does cause LibreOffice entries to show up, although the JWM menu doesn't display the icons of the entries (see screenshot below). After installing a pet the fixmenus command is run automatically, so I wonder why menus still won't appear in some cases. The Lxpanel menu is a tricky one, it reads changes made to /usr/share/applications so it requires to create an actual .desktop file instead of a symlink to update, or some trick, for example if you type this in a terminal:

Code:
touch /usr/share/applications/a.txt &
rm /usr/share/applications/a.txt


The Lxpanel menu will update displaying the LibreOffice entries.

looks like the .desktop files ended up in /usr/local/share/applications/ instead of /usr/share/applications/. symlinking or copying them and then running fixmenus is probably the easiest way to get the menu entries to show.

It's a *.desktop problem : in ASRI package we point to a template :
Quote:
Exec=libreoffice4.4 --writer "/root/.config/libreoffice/4/user/template/modele-writer.ott"

see package above.

I have the same problem as genei (welcome to the kennels Smile ) having just tried to open libreoffice_4.4.3_en_es_xz.sfs in a frugal install Tahrpup 6.02CE (JWM). WT? I'm sure I had the package working earlier, but haven't used this distro for a few weeks. Tried symlinking /copying the desktop files from usr/local/share/applications to usr/share/applications as suggested by someone earlier, and "fixmenus" in console - but the "/root/%U " error remains. My first reflex was to uninstall and reinstall the SFS and that hasn't worked either. Perhaps I'll relegate myself back to an earlier SFS Sad

Try to delete "%U" in the desktop file.
You can also replace it with your template path as suggested above.

Thanks boxR Smile
not completely successful - I changed the writer.desktop file in /opt/libreoffice4.4/share/xdg with your Exec template mentioned above, "fixmenus" in console but still get "/root/%U does not exist". Very strange. However, directly selecting any of the .desktop files in /opt/libreoffice4.4/share/xdg opens the required application, and I'm able to limp along with Impress now to reach a deadline. Thanks again!
