LibreOffice is now available for Haiku


#62

For the moment Lible Office is nothing for me. Always crashing, to slow. Calible office works fine. I hope the port will be better next time, then i will test again.

Thanks for your work

AFAIK, LibreOffice only crashes on exit and it should be harmless.

You can workaround it by creating ~/config/settings/system/debug_server/settings with the following content:

executable_actions {
       LibreOffice kill
 }

Posted screenshots of LibreOffice 6.2 being tested on the latest nightly in a separate thread – thank you so much to the people that ported this over! It is really incredible, and an awesome addition to the Haiku operating system! Seriously, thanks can’t be said enough.

It does crash on first launch or after closing documents, but otherwise, works wonderfully. It is really remarkable.

Always crashing? I admit it does on first run, closing down, etc. but otherwise at least on my machine, it works fine for me so far. Help encourage everyone who made this feat possible! :smiley: They did an outstanding job. More than I could ever hope to do – honestly. This is hard work. For instance, if I ever even attempted anything like this, I would have had to port over parts of X, etc. but this runs right on Haiku naturally! Bravo to the ones that did this!

Still no 32 bit package. :frowning:


#67

Hopefully it’ll make its way soon.


#68

Super but what about GobeProductive.
Why can’t use it with Haiku?


#69

Why not? you can use it, at least in 32 bit Haiku for now.

X86_64 breaks binary compatibility with older apps that were compiled for BeOS and early Haiku. X86_gcc2 is required to run apps compilied for the 32bit ABI. Both x86_64 and x86_gcc2 run fine on 64 bit hardware. You just need to run 32bit apps in Haiku 32bit x86_gcc2.

Also this is a year old thread. Questions should be made in a new thread instead of digging up old threads.

Very likely NicNac first searched the forum for existing threads about LibreOffice and picked it up from there.
