PostPosted: Sat 01 Jul 2006, 19:07    Post subject:  Open Office.org 2.03 Dotpup (US, DE, FR, vi and others)  

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.
If your pup001 has less than 130 MB free space temporarily for the Dotpup-extraction, install my patch to use a mounted drive for temporary files:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9091
Or resize your pup001 in the Puppy-controlpanel.
Or in Puppy 1, use a virtual harddisk on a Windows-drive:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7482


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-2.03/Dotpup/openoffice.org2.0.pup


Download (300 kB):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.03/Dotpup/OpenOffice-2.03.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.

I did not include the help, that will be additional 25 MB for each of the 3 supported languages. They will follow tomorrow.
Also Java is not included, that might be required for some enhanced functions.
Get Java here if you need it:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=5024

I made the Dotpups from this repository (intel-debs):
ftp://ftp.linux.cz/pub/localization/OpenOffice.org/devel/680/OOC680_m7/Build-1/
If you want to "add" your own language:
Download the huge 120 MB-pack of your country.
Undeb it.
Copy all files in opt/openoffice.org2.0 to the corresponding folder from my pack(overwrite any existing ones, I used "cp -ax *").
That's all. Do NOT copy usr and etc, because I replaced symlinks with new scripts..
This method works better than adding the small but incomplete additional language-packs.


I did not check the dependencies, you might need additional dotpups. There certainly soon will protest someone Wink

Mark,
It has been said that all good things come to those who wait. This dot pup looks like the best way to get Open Office working on my laptop yet. I will download, install, and try it out in the next couple of days and let you know how it works. Many thanks for this and all of your efforts to better the lot of us Puppy users.

fine Smile

I also uploaded the help now, 10 MB each Dotpup, ~25 MB extracted each.

English:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.03/Dotpup/OpenOffice-2.03-help-en.pup

Deutsch:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.03/Dotpup/OpenOffice-2.03-help-de.pup

Francais:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.03/Dotpup/OpenOffice-2.03-help-fr.pup

They first will extract in your pup001, and then be moved to the final location to where you had chosen to install OpenOffice to.
Also Pupget is updated with this "move".
This method avoids, that unexperienced users would choose a wrong folder with a filedialog.

Mark, thanks very much for providing this. One doesn't often see a 550 MHz Pentium III with 128 Mb of RAM running OO2, but Puppy and you have made it possible Very Happy

The board won't let me upload a screenshot to prove it, so everyone will have to take my word for it for now. Cool

Smile I believe you Mark Smile

I downloaded and installed OO on 1.09CE yesterday. When I used the KDE theme the menus went small (eh . . . I did not have KDE . . .) However the GTK+ and default themes are fine.

Open Office is one of the gems of Open software. I particularly liked the drawing package and the ability to output as Flash.

Thanks MU

vietnamese / installing other languages

You can download a vietnamese Dotpup here, it is less than 1 MB (has no helpfiles):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.03/Dotpup/OpenOffice-2.03-lang-vi.pup

Then you can set vietnamese in the options:



Result: (Note that OO seems not to support vietnamese input-methods by default, so test it with unikey or so)



If you want to create a dotpup of another language, follow this example:
I downloaded this file (thanks to Hacao for the tip):
http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/editors/openoffice.org-l10n-vi

extracted it:
undeb openoffice.org-l10n-vi_2.0.2-2ubuntu5_all.deb

Now I created a vi.tgz from the files in the new subfolder
usr/lib/openoffice/
Then I wrote a script postinstall.sh for my dotpup-wizard.
It will extract this vi.tgz to the final OpenOffice-folder after installation, and register to pupget.
This step is required, as my OpenOffice-dotpup is relocatable.
If you want to burn a Puppy-Iso with OpenOffice in your language, you can copy the files directly without making such a dotpup to /usr/openoffice.org2.0.

You can download the example-folder for the Dotpup-wizard here:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Office/OpenOffice-2.03/Dotpup/devel/OpenOffice-2.03-lang-vi-Dotpupwizard-template.tgz

To create a dotpup for your own language (example: klingon):
extract it, and rename it from vi to klingon, like
/root/test/OpenOffice-2.03-lang-vi
to
/root/test/OpenOffice-2.03-lang-klingon

Then replace vi.tgz with your own klingon.tgz

In postinstall.sh, replace
lng=vi
with
lng=klingon

Then drag /root/test/OpenOffice-2.03-lang-klingon on the Dotpup-wizard Roxapp.

First, Thanks for all of your work on this issue MU.

I was reading all of the posts. Is this DOTPUp geared only to 1.+ versions of Puppy LInux. I have switched over to version 2.0

I increased my pup_save to 448 MB and tried installing the dotpup. It gave me an error message saying that it couldn't extract the file and then took my memory down to "none". Any suggestions?

P.S: I am running 2.0.1r2.

gpl, if the files are not deleted automatically, do it manually.
It should be the complete folder /root/DotPupTmpdir

I thought my filesize-check would refuse to install without enough space, so I must work again on it Sad

One thing you could do:
Install this patch, that allows to use another temp-folder for extraction.
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9091

Now download a pup001 (254 MB or larger) from here:
http://dotpups.de/files/pup001-different-sizes/

Extract it on a fat32-drive (example: hda1), where you have enough space, and rename it to "tempfile".
Now create a folder /root/tempmount

Mount the tempfile there:
mount -o loop /mnt/hda1/tempfile /root/tempmount
Delete all files in /root/tempmount/, we don't need them for our purpose.

Now click again on the office-dotpup, and choose "set temp-folder".



Choose /root/tempmount as temporary folder.
Continue until installation finished.
Then click again on a dotpup, and set the temp-folder back to /root.

I updated the vietnamese Dotpup.
The ubuntu-deb did include no license-text, so you were asked at every start to accept the license.
I renamed now the english license to LICENSE_vi and added it.

If you still are asked after the installation and starting OpenOffice 2 times, try to rename /root/.openoffice to start with new usersettings.
