libreoffice: the big kit tailored to your language(s)

Post#1 by francois » 30 Dec 2014, 21:18

I would like to have access to libreoffice in my native tongue, with the dictionary and the grammar kit. In fact, I would have like just to modify porteus version to do so, but I don't know from what source it is built. I work with the 64bit architecture.

1.0 Building from source. Meanwhile, beny has proposed that I build from source libreoffice with my locale which is french, but I also like english canadian as in America its hard to make your way exclusively in english.

Slack.build for libreoffice alone:
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/ ... breoffice/

For the language pack, Niels Horn proposes:

For libreoffice, language pack and helppack:

libreoffice rpm packages (the real big kit):

2.0 Already built packages. From Alien, you can get all these slackware already built (java is needed to get libreoffice running):
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbu ... kg64/14.1/
libreoffice-4.3.5-x86_64-1alien.txz
libreoffice-dict-fr-4.3.5-x86_64-1alien.txz
libreoffice-l10n-fr-4.3.5-x86_64-1alien.txz
openjdk-7u71_b14-x86_64-1alien.txz

This is handy as all you have to do is to convert them into modules.

3.0 Interrogations. I have tried to run with the langage pack but the interface is still in english instead of in french. What is the way to get the interface in french?

hi francois the libreoffice core,the default language of the main package is english but if you change the language you have the libreoffice core in your language,i think if you have change the lang.csh and lang sh with the french language.

Ok, I just got it with system > porteus setting center > wrench-screwdriver icon > language setup.
