Vanilla up-stream

FIXME - add some native packaging goodness foo here I guess.

ooo-build

When everything has finished building; you should get some happy looking message. The easiest way to install is:

     bin/ooinstall -l <path-to-install-to> 

I often use

     /opt/OOInstall

If you are a packager, you'll want to run make install which honours DESTDIR & does other packager-like things.

Note: The '-l' to ooinstall runs a linkoo on the installed result.

Installing more than one version

This is useful for regression testing, cautious upgrading, etc.

Windows:

  • open WINDOWS START MENU -> RUN ...
  • insert the path and file to the setup OR browse to the location
  • add at the end (behind the setup.exe) " /a" and click OK
  • the setup program start
  • select the location where you want to install OpenOffice.org
  • start the OpenOffice.org the directory where you have install it.

When you install the OpenOffice.org with the option /a then you have NO systemintegration. (no start menu entries and no file association)

Linux:

  • open new shell
  • change to the directory where all the rpm packages are. (f.e.

/temp/openoffice/rpm)

  • f.e. you want to install the office into the directory

/home/user1/office then insert

rpm -vh --install --dbpath /home/user1/office/.rpm --nodeps --prefix /home/user1/office/ openoffice*.rpm

after the rpm installation you can start the office from the path /home/user1/office/program/soffice When you install the office in this way you have no systemintegration (no start menu entries and no file association)

After you have done this do the following:

Open the file bootstraprc(Linux)/bootstrap.ini(windows) in a editor. Change the line UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/.staroffice_english

into

UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/.staroffice_dutch

or any other directory you want.
