  1. i have installed apacheopenoffice 4.0.1 along with libreoffice, but the problem is that apacheopenoffice is not showing in applications. what shuld i do to run openoffice?

    • Manish Shokeen says:

      You have to remove Libre office first by below command.

      # yum erase libreoffice\*

      Then install Open Office

  2. Eddie G. says:

    Sorry, messed up the format of that first command here it is:

    # yum install glibc-2.7* –skip-broken

    @Vikram

    Hi, you could always try to install the version that is required bypassing whatever issues you encounter…like this

    #yum install glibc-2,7* –skip-broken than after it installs you can run

    #yum update

    which should try to rectify the problems with versioning…..just as a suggestion.

    I have been trying to install this for weeks for my Linux class, prior to this class I have only heard of Linux and have never tried it. I have followed your instructions with no issue until step 5. After entering the command I get “tar: Apache_OpenOffice_incubating_3.4.1_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now” but when looking into the tmp file i is sitting there. What is wrong?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Wb,

      Sorry, we have mentioned wrong order for tar command option. the correct way to install it using tar command is as follows.

      # tar -xzvf Apache_OpenOffice_incubating_3.4.1_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz

      I think it should work.

    Dear,

    I tried to install open office 3.4 at my Fedora 8 PC, but it did’nt work. I am getting the following message:

    User must select a JRE from options dialog!/opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11′ not found (required by /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/libsvt.so)
    /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11′ not found (required by /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/libvcl.so)

    And I don’t know what can I do?

    Please if you help me I will appreciate that.

    See ya!

    Reinhardt

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Dear Reinhardt,

      I think you don’t have glibc package installed on your system, install it using following command.

      yum install glibc
      

      If you still get’s same error then this guide is not compatible with Fedora 8.

    I followed your instructions step by step and since I am new to Linux but I love working on it, I had to install this app. 3 times and finally I understood the commands and it worked out great for me. Thank you very much.
