So far, my first installation of Endeavour works perfectly. I just have one problem. I have downloaded OpenOffice en I do not know how to install it. If someone could help me : PLEASE. Anyway, thanks.
You can install it straight from AUR.
yay -S openoffice
In general, pretty much everything is available in the repos and/or AUR. It should be pretty rare where you need to download and install something manually.
So, using the terminal, just use yay -S openoffice will do?
Oh, I am sorry. I could not find it in the repos. I will give it a try. Thank you very much indeed. In Dutch : Dankjewel.
No, I was wrong. I got a brain fart and thought you talked about libreoffice.
Nooooo, please. Do not get a brain fart.
Please. Forgive me, but by one reason or another, I cannot install OpenOffice. I did download it and yay -S openoffice just does not work. Or do I have to place the downloaded file in a specific file?
Can we see the output you get when you run
yay -S openoffice?
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES, it works. Thanks to dalto. Thank you very much indeed.
This was a transition for me too, coming from windows. I’m used to hunting down any program I want, downloading it and then installing it. With EOS (and linux in general afaik) I haven’t found anything that isn’t in the yay repos just waiting for me to type the right cmd. Even stuff I thought was oddball and nobody else would use (eg. irssi).
libreoffice came out of openoffice sure things can get different in time, but is most used office versus openoffice but you can always use it from the aur offcourse
I used to prefer OpenOffice even over MS Word back in the day when I used Windows. There is bazillion features that I never use, and they just clutter up things.
Unfortunately the language files couldn’t be used on the newer versions of OpenOffice so I had to switch to LibreOffice witch has more features.
Using a little silly language on a daily basis has it’s caveats.
Why not use Libreoffice instead, Eef?
It’s in the repo and takes less time to install.
Openoffice has to be build every time you update.
