Libreoffice 4.0 AUR package

The libreoffice package in [extra] has been flagged out of date since 2/7/2013. In the meanwhile, I've made a simple AUR PKGBUILD for Libreoffice 4.0 using the RPM's available on the libreoffice website. The package can be found at Libreoffice-rpm.

Re: Libreoffice 4.0 AUR package

What do you mean by gnome integration? It currently uses freedesktop style integration.

He means functionality similar to the libreoffice-gnome package.

The AUR package contains the files from the libreoffice-gnome package.

Re: Libreoffice 4.0 AUR package

Btw does anyone know why it does take so long to get LibreOffice 4 into the official repos? Compiling on my notebook will finish in eternity...

Re: Libreoffice 4.0 AUR package

The package actually doesn't really compile anything. It simply extracts the RPM files and installs them. The part that takes a long time is package compression (for storage and records).

The maintainer is waiting for 4.1. LibreOffice is known for bugs in the initial major releases (x.0).

Re: Libreoffice 4.0 AUR package

I've been using Libreoffice 4.0.0.3 for a while now, and I don't see any bugs or problems. Looking at the bugzilla for libreoffice, I also don't see as many bugs for Libreoffice 4.0.0.3. I do see a lot of fixes from older versions of Libreoffice.

I think I wrote the wrong version, though. I meant 4.0.1, not 4.1

So, the issue is a matter of following developer's advice (since I still don't see that many bugs, I saw one copy & paste bug which was already fixed). In addition, the library problems I think are moot, since these binaries draw so little dependencies, it is likely that the libraries are statically linked.

The Arch developers seemed to have changed their mind since Libreoffice 4.0.2 is now out.

It was always planned to package a stable 4.0.1 or 4.0.2. They were only against 4.0.0 or 4.0.1-RC
