Default How to install an OpenOffice language pack
How do you install an Openoffice.org language pack? I downloaded the files from http://ooopackages.good-day.net/pub/...FreeBSD6/i386/, but i haven't found any instructions for installation. I am Using PC-BSD 1.4 and the OpenOffice.org 2.1 PBI. Thanks a lot.

Hallo,

when you startet first time for example OpenOfficeWriter you will ask for install the language-pack.

Than let install your language-pack. That ist all.

Greetings
Andreas

Hi, I think you should open a root console and

Code:
cd pathToTheDirectoryOfDownloadedTgz
pkg_add packageName
Bye, Daniele.

Thank you for your answers, but none of them work. I uninstalled OOo, but the 2.1 PBI doesn't ask for a language pack after the first run, and when i try to add the package, i get this error:

Code:
# pkg_add OOo_2.1.0_FreeBSD62Intel_langpack_es.tar.bz2
pkg_add: unable to open table of contents file '+CONTENTS' - not a package?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
the problem is that you've downloaded a .tar.bz2 package. If you want to use pkg_add command you have to download .tbz (e.g:OOo_2.1.0_FreeBSD62Intel_langpack_es.tbz), from the link that you have previously posted.

Bye, Daniele

OK. I downloaded the right file (OOo_2.1.0_FreeBSD62Intel_install_es.tbz). This is the result of pkg_add the file:

Code:
# pkg_add OOo_2.1.0_FreeBSD62Intel_install_es.tbz
pkg_add: could not find package xorg-fonts-encodings-6.9.0_1 !
pkg_add: could not find package icu-3.6 !
pkg_add: could not find package python24-2.4.3_3 !
pkg_add: could not find package openssl-0.9.8d !
pkg_add: could not find package bitstream-vera-1.10_2 !
pkg_add: could not find package glitz-0.5.6 !
pkg_add: could not find package gdbm-1.8.3_3 !
Now, do i have to do a pkg_add for each of these missing components or is there something else to make this thing work? Thanks.

pkg_add is telling you that you have to install those missing packages. I guess that you have to do this because you aren't installing a package using ports. The ports tree is easy to use because it can look for dependencies and install everything you need. If you install a package by yourself you need to fit this dependencies by hand. You can install what you missed using ports. Go to http://www.freshports.org/ serch what you need and compile. If I missed something, I will answer your questions (if I can ).

Bye,
Daniele

You could also install each of those depends via pkg_add (with the -r switch) and then re run it on that package.


This is the price of PBI not being unintegratable with Ports/Packages... I also find it odd about the Python one because Python is pre-installed on PC-BSD.

for example:

pkg_add -r gdbm


I've never tried it but I wonder just for the heck of it if the output of pkg_add on the lang pack could be used to automate pkg_add'ing them but I don't know if pkg_add can be used in a pipe line.

# tar -zxvf OOo_2*langpack*tar.bz2
