          • You have something strange on your system…you have only 32-bit gnome-vfs2 installed on 64-bit system. Please try following:

            
            yum install gnome-vfs2.x86_64
            

            Then try installation again. :)

    2. Does anyone know when Openoffice.org / LibreOffice changed printig GUI? For example I can select printer input tray in OO 3.3 and it works but in LO 3.4.5 it always pools paper from default input tray. I believe that ther might be newer version of OO or LO which has printing like OO 3.3. Point is that I want to use newest office suite possible but if it has capabilitiy like OO 3.3 to change input tray from within Writer.

    5. I think a yum localinstall would be a better approach to install the rpms after downloading. Yum will take care of any missing dependencies such as ruby-gnomevfs etc….

    6. Just in case anybody else gets this error after install everything and trying to run libreoffice.
      You will only get this error if this is a fresh install (no other versions installed before installing now)

      [[email protected] desktop-integration]# libreoffice3.6
      /opt/libreoffice3.6/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

      just install this package:
      yum install libpng-compat

      Good to go after that!

    8. For those who had this kind of issue:

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

      Maybe add –norequires option to your rpm command. For example: “rpm -Uvh –nodeps RPMS/*.rpm”

      • Hi RAJ,

        Do you get any errors if you run /opt/libreoffice3.6/program/soffice on command line as normal user?

        Reply
        • There was no error. It was just staying without telling anything for a long time… I was infront of the black screen waiting for the spash screen or any error— it just negleted me completely without showing me a splash screen or some thing to help with atleast an error !!

          removing everything and installing again helped me this time…

          Thanks & Rgds.

    12. I am getting the following problems. In the second step where we are extracting, I am not able to extract from root. This error comes.


      tar: LibO_3.6.2*: Cannot open: No such file or directory
      tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

      Please help. I am not able to install Libre Office because of this.

      • I somehow managed to extract only when I went without typing su –

        Whenever I went into the root, I got the above error. And after having installed libpng-compat and all, when I tried the localinstall in the next step, this is what I got.

        • You have to change directory to location where you have extracted package, example:

          
          cd /home/[replace your user name]/Downloads/LibO_3.6.2*
          

          And then run:

          
          yum localinstall RPMS/*.rpm RPMS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.6-freedesktop-menus-3.6*.noarch.rpm

    13. How do you associate file types with LO? For instance I run yum remove libreoffice* to remove default 3.4.5 version from CentOS. Then I follow your tutorial. It is great, but I have to asign file types manually and twice: once for opening them from file system and second for opening them from thunderbird attachment :)

      Can I tell it during installation to associate itself with default types like LO 3.4.5 which comes by default?

      • Hi Milan,

        I just tested this on clean installed CentOS and LibreOffice files works just normally.

        Open Nautilus File Manager and click one document with right mouse button -> select properties -> select tab “Open with” -> add LibreOffice application and remove other applications

    14. Hi JR

      Thank you for this guide but I have a problem on my 2.6.43.8-1.fc15.x86_64 with LibreOffice 3.3.4 (the last yum update for F15).
      I try to install the last LibreOffice version (3.6).

      When: yum localinstall rpm -Uvh RPMS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.6-freedesktop-menus-3.6.3-2.noarch.rpm
      I get: no such option: -U

      NB: yum localinstall RPMS/*.rpm
      –> Nothing to do

      If I open LibreOffice Writer, it’s still in 3.3.4.

      I don’t get where I’m wrong.

      • Hi wert,

        As Milan, commented it was typo on guide and you should use following instead:

        
        yum localinstall RPMS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.6-freedesktop-menus-3.6.3-2.noarch.rpm
        

        Could you also post output of following command:

        
        rpm -qa libreoffice\* |sort

          • I’ve installed LO 3.6.3 on several PCs without issue, but on one I’ve had a issue with installing desktop integration. Whenever I used yum localinstall with local folder it threw error. Not the same as yours, but similar. Only way to install DI was to double lick on it in archive and let CentOS automatically extract and install rpm. I have no idea what caused this.

            Maybe you can try it too.

            • I tried to install

              and
              /home/USER/Downloads/LibO_3.6.3.2_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US/RPMS/libobasis3.6-kde-integration-3.6.3.2-2.x86_64.rpm

              both say “waiting for service startup”
              (maybe a bad translation because I translated my French message)

              but nothing changed, LibreOffice is still in 3.3.4.

              • Hi wert,

                Actually you have libreoffice3.6-freedesktop-menus-3.6.3-2.noarch installed. Real problem is Fedora 15 different naming for LibreOffice packages, so please remove LibreOffice 3.3 and LibreOffice 3.6 and install just LibreOffice 3.6.3:

                
                yum remove libreoffice*
                

                Then follow this guide again. Do you get LibreOffice 3.6.3 working then?

                • After removing all LibreOffice and reboot the computer, I reinstalled the last LibreOffice version and it works!

                  Thank you very much for your help, JR and Milan.
