I've got an error for you. Whenever I click on Office from my panel, or for that matter, tell the computer to run soffice I get the following image. I don't speak german (that /is/ german, right?) so I'm not sure what it is telling me.

Like the above poster, there are some functions that result in absolutely nothing coming of them, such as Draw and Writer, no matter how I attempt to open them.

I'm using 2.11.

-------------------------
And here is what you asked of the previous poster --

Quote:
sh-3.00# swriter
/usr/bin/swriter: line 8: /usr/local/openoffice.org2.0/program/swriter: No such file or directory
sh-3.00# sdraw
sh-3.00# scalc
[Java framework] Invalid value for bootstrap variable: UNO_JAVA_JFW_VENDOR_SETTINGSjavaldx failed!
sh-3.00#


I checked, and indeed, there is no such file or directory of swriter. It is missing. As for sdraw, it did not open despite there being a lack of error message and it being present and accounted for where need be. Scalc is one of those that gives me the german error message.

I just can imagine, that the big dotpup was not extracted correctly (disk full?).

What do you get with this command?:
du -m /usr/local/openoffice.org2.0 | tail -n 1

thanks Mark but I had to nuke my save file (puppy converted to XML for some reason and i lost my mouse) and resinstalled OpenOffice and it worked like a charm.

Mark; I certainly understand your problems with the inconsistancies of Puppy & trying to support "every release".
This is why I'm still working with Puppy 1, & it has more inconsistancies than I care for!

I think if Puppy system utilities were written & documented for developers, it'd go a long way to fixing this.
It seems that in the rush to make & release "something new" the basics of a "full distro." have been passed over.
Pizzasgood's utilities for working with Puppy files is a great start for a developers "tool kit".
But the underlieing O.S. needs documented utilities so all of us aren't constantly rewriting the same code over & over again.
The menus for all the different WMs Puppy has is a good example,
a utility to add or delete items from any installed WM's menu that it finds?
rarsa's unified menus helps for the future Puppies, but I guess there's problems with it in Xfce.

OH... and Mark, an english version of your web site's donations page?
(I don't mean to insinuate that english is the only language you should consider, Spanish & French are common languages also)

Oh, I'm sure that something went wrong with the install, and it wouldn't surprise me if it was a space issue. I have installed on three separate computers and only had problems on one of them.

I did snag the squashfile of OpenOffice but as it is my first, I am at a loss as to how to use it. I know this isn't the ideal place, but if someone would be so kind as to tell me where to put it, it would be much appreciated. Does it go inside or outside of my puppy file architecture?

You usually put it in /mnt/home and reboot.
Then you should have a folder
/usr/local/openoffice.org2.0

There you should fnd programs:
/usr/local/openoffice.org2.0/scalc
/usr/local/openoffice.org2.0/simpress
/usr/local/openoffice.org2.0/swriter

and more.
If only one is missing, this would indicate an error in unionfs, in that case I would have to update the dotpup with a small bugfix-script.

Worked fantastic MU. Thanks!
Should not it be mentioned in first post you made where links are provided?

I have made a squashfile for Puppy 1.x
But it is 120MB without help files, and Nathan's original OOo2.0 dotpup is only 106MB including help files - has OO grown by that much, or is there something special I should be doing when I squash it? - should I be using a Big Endian filesystem instead of a little Endian or something?

It might be a bit larger, as it includes languagefiles for english, french and german.
I think it also grew slightly in general.

So your size looks ok.

Ah-I seem to have been confused here looking at it from different platforms and file managers-it is ~120,000,000 bytes or about 114MB, and although MU's 2.10 squashfile is about the same size as Nathan's 1.x, his 2.11 squashfile is about the same size as mine.

All I did is I took Nathan's squashfile and replaced the OOo-2.0 folder with the one produced from installing the dotpup (which started off with a slightly different name). So it adds entries to XDG menus, and instead of MU's panel type thing, it has Nathan's launcher app that you drag to your desktop and right-click on to pick what to launch (or just click to launch OO writer). I fixed the error (in the launcher app) with launching OO impress, and changed the OO executable to use the Gnome interface. If you used it but wanted MU's panel thing you could always install his smaller dotpup Smile

I would like to share it if somebody can suggest a reliable way - I haven't had much luck with these free file hosting sites - upload something, and then it doesn't want to download... Smile and I don't really have the bandwidth to try uploading to several places before I find one that works.

Also, I am going to make for myself an English only version (which looks like it will save something like 20-25MB), but with help (which will add 25MB back again), and I am inclined to share this instead, as I think it will be more useful for more people. What does everybody want?

Also, if there are any quick changes I should make to it, let me know, as I have the files sitting there in a virtual hard-drive, and don't mind re-squashing it.

a english onlyversion might be a good alternative.
When you finished everything, write me a PM, the I can send you instructions for upload.

OK, I stripped out the other languages, and also removed from /local/OOo-2.0/share/config
images_crystal.zip, images_hicontrast.zip, images_industrial.zip.
I think these are icons for theming or something, and it doesn't seem to affect anything taking them out, and they take up a lot of space, and Nathan's squashfile didn't have them, so I think it is safe.
The squashfile is now 107MB, fractionally larger than Nathan's one. It works in Puppy 1.09, 1.08, Grafpup, and even Chubby Puppy.
I'm going to have to wait till the 16th before I upload though due to bandwidth limitations, so you have 11 days to protest and say you don't want those things taken out Smile

I got a question about a spanish version via PM.
As this is of general interest, I reply here.

I wrote a description for version 2.03 here:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9102

For 2.04 it should be almost the same.

http://es.openoffice.org/
Here you could download a native spanish OO.
Extract it with undeb or unrpm, then make a new squashfs.
You can install undeb with the dotpupdownloader in the setup-menu.

When you extracted, delete all files except opt/openoffice.org2.0

Now make a squashfs:
mksquashfs opt OpenOffice204-spanish_211.sfs

Replace your existing OpenOffice-2.04_211.sfs with it and reboot.
This is the best way, but requires to download again 120 MB.

You also could try to download smaller languagepacks and overwrite existing files with it, but these are often not complete, and such an installation is not very clean and wastes space in pup_save.3fs.
I would not recommend that.
