Want to build german Openoffice.org

Hi,

I want to compile the latest openoffice.org 1.1 with german language support
and after that make a package with it.
I haven´t done this yet. So a short explanation how to do it, would be nice

I suspect that the maker of the OOO english release has the scripts for it, so I only have to set the language option for german ?
If so, can you please send them to me ?

thanks

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

I suggest you can just use the abs-package and change the source-file to the german one.

The pkgbuild is in /var/abs/extra/openoffice.

For more Infos about abs, just search the forum smile

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

well i am the maintainer of openoffice, if you just want the dictonary and spellings controle. you won't need to rebuild.

here you can find the way you should build your deutch translation of openoffice.
http://de.openoffice.org/

but beware it will take a long time to build openoffice +- 10 hours and it won't build if you got the 2.6 kernel loaded.

read my comments in the PKGBUILD !!!!

i would suggest just to install the binary version of openoffice wink

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

Well recompiling openoffice is a bit hard especially if you plan to change the interface language.
The english compilation goes plain without do any trick on the PKGBUILD
big_smile , maybe is because the PKGBUILD is for the english version lol

Anyway to compile any other language you need the language help file otherwise it complain.
Basically each language need a file that is identified by the international phone code and must be downloaded from openoffice website and unzipped ina dir in the sorce tree.
At these page you can find more info.

well all you have to do is:

1. add --with-lang=ALL to the configure options
2. include the path to your desired language set (the url to these files is included in the link you provide). this will put a copy of your language set in your abs build directory.
3.change the number in this line of the PGKBUILD:

cd $startdir/src/oo_1.1.1a_src/instsetoo/unxlngi4.pro/01/normal

to

cd $startdir/src/oo_1.1.1a_src/instsetoo/unxlngi4.pro/34/normal

that's it. the PKGBUILD does not restrict you to building just english .... you just have to edit it to support other localizeations.

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

Openoffice 1.1.1b is out. Will there be a new PKGBUILD ?

Well normaly yes but in general I hope no.

In reality 1.1.1a and 1.1.1b are not stable release, in fact I do not know why the mantainer has doen a package for it, since normally arch include only stable release and not beta or alpha rc1 etc.etc...

For me does not mind a lot, fortunately I have a fast connection. But many other user don't and since the addiction over 1.1.0 are few and very secondary, and 1.1.1b should have just some fix over 1.1.1a, the answer is up to developer. big_smile

It is a bit like xine-lib, in the repository there is the version 1rc0a-1, but has been release an rc2 and now an rc3 but it was not updated untill now even if it was flagged. And rc3 should be quite more stable than rc1.

personally i would not have offered 1.1.1a my self i would wait for the stable release. we did use rc releaes in the past for open office but that was only because they were talking forever to release 1.1. releases are coming alot faster now and generally beta OOo releases are not that good.

with respect to xine-lib arch should be using the rc releases as the stable release no longer works with alsa so if a user wants to have alsa in xine i guarntee you that it is easier for everyone if xine-lib is the rc version. if not then you have to step back the version of alsa packages which requires recompiling the kernel and put the full source in /usr/src so that the driver package can be compiled.  this is for 2.4.2x users at least. i am not sure what version of alsa the 2.6 kernel uses. regardless for everyone it would be easier if xine-lib was the rc release.

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

kin,

i did give you a step by step. but obviously i was not clear enough. i will post a editied PKGBUILD tonight that should work for you. just make sure that you have all the makedepends and have you bison patched so that you can compile it  once you have your PKGBUILD.  if you do not have the build depends and bison pactched then building WILL fail.

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

because like many small distros atr the time of packaging this arch decided that only english would be supported. that has changed. so please bring this up with the package maitainer. i currently have not had the time to post how one has to edit the PKGBUILD to do it. in fact i don't see this as being my responsibility when i am not even the maintainer ... or for that matter even using arch currently.

keep i mind that you will be forced to swallow a larger package if you want multilingual support.

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

hi,

I made it :-)

I built my own OOO 1.1.1b with german language. :-)

The only thing that is annoying is that the helpcontent is missing. It seems I placed it into the wrong directory. I thought it was the right one, strange :-(

Thanks Sarah for your help

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

Submit a bug report explaining what you had to do to add German support and it will be added to OO

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

xentac it is all explained on the oppenoffice web page how to add the various language support. basically you download the supported language package(s) and then edit one line near the end of the build before it starts installing in the package. it think there are maybe ten langauges that they have support for right now.

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

Hi,

it is like Sarah says. I only changed all 1.1.1a to 1.1.1b, 03 to 49, added --withLang=Ger and unzipped the helpcontent in the right directory.
After about 7 hours  I had the package.

I try with it, and change 01 to 34 in the PKGBUILD, but when i do makepkg i get this error:

checking for xmkmf... no
configure: error: install xmkmf to run this script, include openwin in path

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

Hi,

sorry I misspelled the option

--with-lang=FREN would be correct for french.

Here is the complete howto:

Re: Want to build german Openoffice.org

Did you try --with-lang=SPAN ?

According to

http://tools.openoffice.org/openoffice_lang.html
http://l10n.openoffice.org/all_supported_languages.html

"To build resource libraries an additional language an extra environment variable has to be set..."
