    2. How do you keep your Libreoffice updated? Manually checking for new releases?

    3. On centos 6.2 I cannot get libre office to install
      open office is complete uninstalled and I tried the above
      and then I tried yum install yum-plugin-fastestmirror
      yum install yum-fastertmirror
      I checked /etc/yumpluginconf.d/fasterstmirror.conf to be shure it contained the
      following lines
      verbose=0
      socket_time = 3
      enabled =1
      hostfilepath = /var/cache/yum/timedhosts.txt
      maxhostfileage = 1

      the fastest host it selected was always my file:///media…
      so basically it was trying to use my cd to install from, but nothing
      on the cd. or in the drive.
      any ideas?
      .

      • Hi fudmier,

        If you follow this guide, then I do not understand why you can’t install LibreOffice using RPM packages and rpm command (no yum at all)?

    4. I’ve successfully installed various versions of OpenOffice on RHEL 5.7, but I wanted to try out LibreOffice 3.4.4/5 as well.

      I’ve repeatedly extracted, installed and removed the package downloaded from the LibreOffice website following the instructions both the website and you have provided.

      As a non-root user, I have always received the following errors and I have not been able to successfully connect to any java connector/environment/plugin:

      #libreoffice3.4
      /opt/libreoffice3.4/program/../basis-link/ure-link/bin/javaldx: /usr/lib64/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by /opt/libreoffice3.4/ure/bin/../lib/libjvmfwk.so.3)
      /opt/libreoffice3.4/program/soffice.bin: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9′ not found (required by /opt/libreoffice3.4/program/../basis-link/program/libbasegfxlx.so)

      BUT as root, I am able to do everything in LibreOffice that I can do in OpenOffice — connect to my data sources, spell check works, …

      Any words of wisdom??

      • I updated this guide to latest version and I just tested 3.4.5 version on CentOS 5.7 and for me it’s working just normally (as normal user and root).

        So I recommend you to remove all LibreOffice packages and try install it again.

    5. Hi JR,

      thanks for the great work and the great page. like to sneak through your tipps and tricks.

      one little comment: seems you forgot to change the how to for the latest RC3 for installation (seems still to be the beta install instructions). Changes are:

      tar -xvf LibO_3.5.0*
      cd LibO_3.5.0*

      rpm -Uvh RPMS/*.rpm RPMS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.5-freedesktop-menus-3.5*.noarch.rpm

      OR

      rpm -Uvh RPMS/*.rpm
      rpm -Uvh RPMS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.5-freedesktop-menus-3.5*.noarch.rpm

      5. Start LibreOffice
      /opt/libreoffice3.5/program/soffice

      Hope that helps,

      Cheers
      Oliver

      • Hi Oliver,

        Thank you very much, I forgot update 3.5.0 from Beta to RC. I actually test it, but forgot update this guide commands.

        I tested installation once again, updated guide and your commands are working perfectly! Thanks Oliver!

    9. Hi JR,

      First off, thanks for your site! It has helped me a lot since trying out Fedora…

      I had to also do this before installing Libreoffice –
      yum install libgnome

    11. Thanks for this guide and for all of your other handy guides! If I install this version from Libreoffice will it replace my current version or install alongside?

      Reply
      • Hi Jonathan,

        You are welcome!

        It depends on version of LibreOffice that you have currently installed and how it is installed?

    12. I have version 3.4.something and it’s installed through the normal Fedora 16 repos. I typed my name in properly this time…

      Reply
      • Hi again, I fix your name on earlier comments… :D

        I also update this guide, currently LibreOffice 3.5.2 is latest stable version and any development versions are not even available.

        And yes I just tested this and yes, you can install LibreOffice 3.5.2 alongside the Fedora 16 own LibreOffice 3.4.5 and both should work normally… :)

    13. Works great, thanks again! Got both versions installed.

    14. Thanks for the site mate. This site has helped me alot getting my Fedora box and my CentOS box functioning more productively

      I’m getting a failed dependencies error after I rpm -Uvh RPMS/*.rpm

      Reply
      • Hi AreuR00t,

        Could you post more info about failed dependencies error message?

        Reply
    15. that would only make sense for me to post the dependencies error, duh. Sorry about that

      error: Failed dependencies:
      libgnomevfs-2.so.0()(64bit) is needed by libobasis3.5-gnome-integration-3.5.2-202.x86_64

      I did do a yum install libgnomevfs-2.so.0 and installed all of the 33 or 32 dependencies it wanted to install

      ran rpm -Uvh RPMS/*.rpm and got the same error

      I’m waiting for something else to finish installing before I try rebooting

      Thanks,
