This package is useless for non-English users. The open File dialog (KDE File Picker) is unable to handle filenames with non-latin characters, ie: éàçî....

I also had that problem, but it was caused by a misconfigured system. I followed this guide:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/utf-8.xml

Now I can load and save files with local names in the file dialog.

True. I had a lot of headaches trying to find a fix to this problem... wrong folders names, wrong filenames. Finally, after myriads of trys, I managed to understand that the problem was with this particular package (in suse).

Pay attention to this if you're using accented filenames. As explained on the post above, it can't handle e

I installed 1.1.3-kde, nice, really, but
How can I make openoffice-kde to remember last save or open position? Normal open-office does remember...

I unpacked the .tar.gz
I wanted this to be avaible to all users, so I ran

./setup -net

This installs to /opt by default. But it installs no icons in KDE. Booh!

I tried to run from the command line

/opt/OpenOffice/soffice

and it asks if I want to install in a new directory, I choose /root/programs/OpenOffice.org/ this time, then I run program/swriter, that works.

Is it installed properly now? What about file associations? K menu icons?

Well done people.

My favourite distribution - PLD Linux (pld-linux.org), version 2.0 also has the latest openoffice packages including kde widget support.

The default OOo vcl look isn't all that bad. Anyway, it's a pitty that there's no support for native kde dialog windows (yet?) - open, save, etc. Or there is some project doing that? Cause now not only I have to train my office users in handling removable media under kde, but also accessing their mount points in openoffie.

best regards,

just install openoffice. then install the 348kb package openoffice-kde and:

"This package contains the KDE VCLPlug for drawing OOo's widgets with
KDE/Qt and a KDEish File Picker when running under KDE."

there is also a openoffice-gtk-gnome package :D

and yes, its 1.1.3 (and I have it for more than a week...) and its in the experimental-tree (but works good for me).

Well... in gentoo you just emerge openoffice-ximian. So ... im sure you could just search for the ximian version of openoffice on the net somewhere.

Ya ... that would not surprise me ... as the Gentoo openoffice-ximian builds came from the Ximian group who was bought by Novell who also bought SuSE. So, it would make sense that the next version of SuSE would come with the Ximian OpenOffice like I have already been using with Gentoo. It is great! It can also be built with GNOME 2.8 dialogs.

I have been using Gentoo for a long time and you can already get the LATEST OpenOffice with KDE support. For a while now we just build the ximian edition of OpenOffice with the correct use flag and it automatically built a version of the latest openoffice with KDE icons and the file open/save dialogs. I do not see how this is anything new. If you want the LATEST openoffice track the ximian sources.

Although the submission of OOo on KDE-apps.org doesn't mean that a new release happened I'm glad to see it appear on the KDE-apps.org website.

Yes, Koffice is far more KDE aware. Because it is a KDE app. However, Koffice is not multiplatform.
Yes OOo is a little slow. And while OOo, is a little slow, most machines are a little faster.

The best thing to do, IMHO, is to take the best of both and share them with both. Until Koffice works on whineDOH!s, MACs and so on, OpenOffice is important. And, even when Koffice can work on those other OSes. OOo will still be a wonderful addition to any Publishing App Collection.

Let us not forget all the effort put in to OOo by their developers, likewise for Koffice (and I'm not saying anyone is).

Linux, FBSD and so on are about freedom of choice and Sharing. The choice to have both and the choice to share capabilities/features and so on.

technically speaking, koffice is already available on macs. to install openoffice, you need an x11 implementation for osx (there's no native port planned for a while. post v2 last time i heard). so if you've got that, it's just as easy to install koffice as it is to install OOo (i've done it).

MAC on OS X? Good to know. I'll going to look into it so I can install it on my MAC. However, and sadly, it still doesn't run on whineDOH!s. OOo, runs are a varity of OSes. The point is missed here, I think.

It isn't about which is better, it's about which is more accessible over a large range of operating systems. If Koffice could run on as many OSes as OOo does, than I would more than likely be using Koffice instead of OOo. That, however doesn't mean Koffice is better, it's just different. OOo can do somethings KO can't and visa versa.

My other point was, why does there need to be a competition? Why can't both suites just share? Isn't that one of the Open Source community's philosophys?

Share, it does a code good!

No need to spend time and resources trying to make OpenOffice look like KDE, etc.

Focus on kOffice. A "made-for-Linux" suite that is far more worthy of our attention. It is already KDE-aware, fully integrated.
