PostPosted: Fri 13 Oct 2006, 12:02    Post subject:  Open Office.org 2.04 Dotpup or .sfs (US, DE, FR, VI)  

To install the .sfs instead of the dotpup:
read the follow-up messages further down.
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=73767#73767


the OpenOffice Dotpup

The installation takes a while.
On my computer, for 3 minutes there seems to happen nothing, but then it continues.

Exclamation SO DO NOT CLICK LIKE CRAZY ON THE DOTPUP AGAIN AND AGAIN Exclamation

The whole installation needs 15 minutes on my compter (Pentium 700, 1 Gigabyte Ram).

During installation (After those 3 "quiet" minutes) you will see a progressbar, but it might not work very exact.



There are 2 Dotpups required.
The first will install 310 MB on a drive you like.



So if you have a Linux-partition mounted, you do not need to resize your pup001.
You will need 130 MB free space temporarily for the Dotpup-extraction.


The second Dotpup has several files created especially for Puppy, to offer you this comfortable starter:



Download (106 MB):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.04/openoffice.org2.0.pup


Download (300 kB):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.04/OpenOffice-2.pup

Additional requirements:
Download
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/System_Utilities/getdir.pup

You can run it from the dotpups-menu then; xdg-menus are also supported.
By default, it uses the Gnome/Gtk-Theme, so it looks like a native Puppyprogram like Abiword.

Optional Helpfiles (10 MB each Dotpup, ~25 MB extracted each):

English:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.04/OpenOffice-2.04-help-en.pup

Deutsch:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.04/OpenOffice-2.04-help-de.pup

Francais:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.04/OpenOffice-2.04-help-fr.pup


Vietnamese language-support (no help):

Java is not included, that might be required for some enhanced functions.
Get Java here if you need it:

For general information about packaging OpenOffice, see the thread of version 2.03:

Thanks.
Installed like a charm, except one cosmetic thing: In the dotpups menu the icon has disappeared for OpenOffice.

It might be, that it disappears, if you had version 2.03 before.
Yes, that is a bug in the way, my dotpups update the JWM-menu.

I added now a working icon to the small dotpup OpenOffice-2.pup.
Simply download and re-install it.

Just completed a full install over my 2.02CE (2.03CE?) version without any problems whatsoever. Install went very fast, all icons in their existing places and version 2.04 software only adds around 100Mb to the original installation - for the help files I presume; don't think they were there in Hacoa's version.

Thanks for everything, Mark. Much appreciated.

I would have to create 3 versions.
For Puppy 1, for Puppy2 with lzma (2.10), for Puppy 2 without lzma (2.00-2.02, 2.11).
This means compressing and uploading 330 MB, too time-consuming at moment.
Maybe later.
It certainly won't last long, until the first Isos including it are available.

That's how Nathan distributes OpenOffice and KDE for GrafPup. So it has been done.

Sadly, Puppy is quite rapidly moving away from seeking simple solutions to things, at least that's how it looks from here.

The advantage of the dotpup:
It runs on every Puppy.
You simply have to resize your savefile or create a small Linux-partition.
You even could use a mountable file on a NTFS-partition.

Creating customized .sfs files of this size is a lot of work, and costs money.
But I think I found a solution.
There were requests in the past of creating customized things for a small fee to cover the costs.
At moment, I got only the half of donations for this month, to cover my internet-costs.

So I will offer a squashfs file of OpenOffice 2.0.4 for Puppy 2.10 for a donation.
Use the donation-button at http://dotpups.de to send me 5 Dollar or 5 Euro.
Then I will send you a link and password to download it from htb65.de.
The password is valid for 2 days.
The help-files are not included, but you can use the dotpups of course.

To check in advance, if you can download without problem from that server, try one of the files here:
http://htb65.de/puppylinux/PupGet/

Also, before sending any money, try with another .sfs, if your Puppy 2.10 really mounts them.
We had some reports, that especially on full harddisk-installations, it does not work.
But on such systems, you could use the dotpup of course.

I will create .sfs files for other Puppy-versions on request.

Lately I have been 'dreaming' of a Puppy distro, quite large, where all efforts of all people are included.
Through a one time menu at first boot, the selection is to be made to have puppy 1 or puppy 2 and/or OOo, Wine, KDE, SeaMonkey, Opera, Koffice etc... etc...

Once selected subsequent boots loads what has been selected.

For sure, a possibility should be there to do a first boot again for selection.

A dream? A certain future?

I removed the password-protection.

So if you don't want to use the big dotpup, you now can use a squashfs-file instead.
There are versions for Puppy 2.10 and for Puppy 2.11 (and versions based on it):

http://htb65.de/puppylinux/addons/OpenOffice-2.0.4/

Download the .sfs for your system to /mnt/home and reboot.
Then install the small dotpup.

If you need the help-files, take those from the first message.
Donations are still welcome anyway.

As we encountered problems with the KDE-squashfs mentioned here:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=11811
I wonder if this one will cause such problems, too.
On my system (Puppy 2.10 alpha, frugal install) it works.

If someone "re-squashes" it for other Puppyversions, I could host them, too.

hi all and sorry for the delay
unfortunately my internet is down again..
i have a 2.5second ping, 66% packet loss and so browsing is very hard
and downloading impossible..
it took forever to download the new 2.11
thanks everyone like always for the excellent job!
my old celeron 300 lap is perfectly working now, even wifi is on..
i will check your file MU when i can download again Sad
just a word of warning
beware of Tiscali, they offer you broadband, but when you have a problem they disappear..leaving you in troubles with no assistance..
