Go-OpenOffice.org

From WPKG | Open Source Software Deployment and Distribution
Jump to: navigation, search

Note: The Novell web site now says "Go-oo has been made obsolete by the exciting new LibreOffice project." - see http://planet.documentfoundation.org.

Go-oo is a fork of Sun Microsystems's OpenOffice.org by Novell that, amongst other features, includes greater Microsoft Office compatibility by turning on various Microsoft Office options and including various extensions. Many Linux distributions already include this version of OpenOffice rather than Sun's OpenOffice.org.

If you're upgrading from Sun Microsystems's OpenOffice.org to Go-oo the program will pickup an existing OpenOffice profile.

"spell check is broken in 3.2.0-10, fixed in forthcoming 3.2.0-11. However we have a manual fix. http://go-oo.mirrorbrain.org/stable/win32/3.2/. uninstall then reinstall from go-oo.org download section."

"[*] We are sorry but the bundled extension with dictionaries is broken in the GoOo-3.2-10.exe Windows build. Please remove it in Tools/Extension Manager… and install the fixed one. Only this single fix will be included in the upcomming GoOo-3.2-11.exe build."

Petr Mladek said: "We have fixed one more problem this week (non-working java). The fixed Winodws build should get uploaded the following week. Basically, the Java functionality did not work at all (Wizards, java extensions). The solution is to install msvcr71.dll [from %PROGRAMFILES%\Java\jre6\bin\msvcr71.dll] into c:\Propgram Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program or into c:\windows\system32. This dll is part of the Sun JRE. Unfortunately, OOo is not able to find it in the JRE installation."

  • To configure Go-OpenOffice.org to be default application for Microsoft file formats, you can create MST with Orca Tool or edit the MSI.


Extensions[edit]

Extensions can be installed using "unopkg add --shared path-to-file.oxt" and removed using "unopkg remove --shared extension-identifier". The Extension identifier can be found in "description.xml" within the .oxt archive.

Unopkg is documented here.

Here's an example installer (note that this installs the PDF Import extension, which, from 3.2.0.6 onwards, is included in the main installer so doesn't require installing separately):

<package  
    id="openoffice_pdfimport"
    name="PDF Import Extension for Openoffice"
    revision="1"
    reboot="false"
    priority="0">

     <depends package-id="openoffice_v3" />
     <check type="execute" path="%SOFTWARE%\openoffice\extensions\check_pdfimport.cmd" condition="exitcodeequalto" value="0" />
     <install cmd='"%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenOffice.org 3\program\unopkg" add  --shared "%SOFTWARE%\openoffice\extensions\pdfimport.oxt"' />
     <upgrade cmd='"%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenOffice.org 3\program\unopkg" add -f  --shared "%SOFTWARE%\openoffice\extensions\pdfimport.oxt"' />
     <remove cmd='"%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenOffice.org 3\program\unopkg" remove --shared com.sun.star.PDFImport-windows_x86' />
</package>

check_pdfimport.cmd (referenced above) uses unopkg to determine if the extension is installed.

"%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenOffice.org 3\program\unopkg" list --shared com.sun.star.PDFImport-windows_x86 >NUL 2>&1

This works, but is extremely slow. The following alternative is much quicker.

 "%SOFTWARE%\db_dump" -p  "%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenOffice.org 3\share\uno_packages\cache\uno_packages.db" | find "com.sun.star.PDFImport-windows_x86" >NUL

Db_dump.exe is part of the Berkeley DB package, available at [2]. Copy dbdump.exe, and libdb48.dll, from the \bin directory of the Berkeley DB installation.

Some extensions require that we agree to a license. In this case modify the install command as follows:

<install cmd='%COMSPEC% /c echo yes | "%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenOffice.org 3\program\unopkg" add  --shared "%SOFTWARE%\openoffice\extensions\pdfimport.oxt"' />

Default Language Pack[edit]

  • Language pack can optionally be installed and made default, by setting it as default in newly created profile. Existing Openoffice v3 profiles are probably (!) not affected by this setting.
  • Get language pack from official OpenOffice.org v3 release or download Go-OpenOffice.org native one if it exists.
  • To make a language pack default
    • Create directory: %SOFTWARE%\Go-OpenOffice.org v3\langpack\preset\registry\data\org\openoffice
      • Create Setup.xcu inside (see below)
    • Create directory: %SOFTWARE%\Go-OpenOffice.org v3\langpack\preset\registry\data\org\openoffice\Office
      • Create Linguistic.xcu inside (see below)
  • Default language pack is applied when application is started the second time.
