OpenOffice Light Crashes with VL 7.0
« on: August 31, 2011, 03:02:29 pm »

I've started using OOLight Writer with VL 7.0 RC1 and it crashes at random for some reason. Why would this be? Is there a full version of OpenOffice in the Repos somewhere?

Try Libreoffice, or libreoffice-meta (meta will download all the plugin stuff as well.)

Stretched Thin, thank you very much for the suggestion. I was unaware of LibreOffice. I must have been living in a cave. :-)

BTW, if anyone is interested here's a wikipedia page about it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LibreOffice

I wonder how viable Calligra_Suite is as an alternative, I don't know what KDE libraries it needs...
