Star Office BETA 3 installation

Post by Vincent Mart » Sun, 23 Feb 1997 04:00:00



Hello,

Here are a few question about StarOffice installation.

I use Linux 2.1.26 and X 3.1.2 on an i486 DX2-66 with 32 Mo RAM

1. After installation is complete all StarOffice libraries are in
StarOffice3.1/linux-x86/lib and are not found when I start soffice3. In
order to avoid this problem I had to copy every library in /usr/lib. Is
that normal ?

2. What program should be used to start StarOffice ? I tried
StarOffice3.1/linux-x86/bin/soffice3, scalc3, writer3.
soffice3 works but is not able to start StarCalc or StarWrite : I get a
"The application could not be started" message. When I close the program
I always get an other message : "Error opening configuration file".
scalc3 and swriter3 always give Segmentation fault error.

3. Is there a english newsgroup for StarOffice ?

Thank you for your help.

Vincent Marty

no, you should have left it where it was

in your installation directory /StarOffice3.1 there are two shellscripts,
one of which (depending on your shell) you'll have to edit to enter your
paths. Actually you only have to edit two lines - the one which defines the
installation directory (sd_inst) and one to define a work directory (SVHOME).
Here's mine sd.sh (for bash). As you can see, I keep it all in /usr/local :

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
#! /bin/sh

sd_inst=/usr/local/StarOffice3.1
sd_fonts=$sd_inst/fonts

case `uname -s` in
        SunOS)
                case `uname -r` in
                        5.[4-5])
                                case `uname -p` in
                                        sparc*)
                                                sd_plat='solaris-sparc'
                                                ;;
                                        i?86)
                                                sd_plat='solaris-x86'
                                                ;;
                                        ppc)
                                                sd_plat='solaris-powerpc'
                                                ;;
                                esac

unset sd_inst sd_fonts sd_plat
export PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH XPPATH HELPPATH XENVIRONMENT SVFONTPATH SVHOME
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This sd.sh I added to my ~/.profile and everything works fine.
Don't forget to run 'svdaemon' and 'svportmap' as described in 'readme.01'

: 3. Is there a english newsgroup for StarOffice ?

I don't know

: Thank you for your help.

It took me a while also to get it running.

I added the line /usr/StarOffice3.1/linux-x86/lib to the file /etc/ld.so.conf
Then you have to run ldconfig -V

I have the same problem with soffice3.
I can start writer scalc. I think you have a permission problem.
After installation you have to run "chmod -R +r /usr/StarOffice"
