StarOffice 9 on OpenSolaris 2008-11
By lyon on Mar 19, 2009
I have just finished the StarOffice 9 installation on OpenSolaris 2008-11
I am currently running OpenSolaris 2008-11, build 106.
Here are the steps
1- Download StarOffice from Sun Software Library (Sun employee only)
2- Prepare to install it as root
Allow DISPLAY for root and launch StarOffice installation script
In one terminal :
(first line below, you can't guess it: of course, you have to go and ask for your best OpenSolaris friend)
#svccfg -s svc:/application/x11/x11-server setprop options/tcp_listen = true
In an other terminal
#DISPLAY=129.x.x.x:0.0 (your IP @ you can get with #ifconfig)
Launch StarOffice script : #/opt/so9.0.1.sh
Ensure that OpenOffice is installed. I don't know why, but even if my StarOffice9 installation script succeeded, afterwards libuno_sal.so.3 was missing. This library was added after OpenOffice installation.
3 - Install the fonts
3-A Download the fonts from Sun Software Library
copy fonts : #cp sun_msfonts.zip /usr/X11/lib/X11/myfonts
Run spadmin (as regular user): #/opt/staroffice9/program/spadmin and install the new fonts from the menu
Also, if you want to remove from the Gnome menu the Staroffice 8:(thanks to Ian)
System -> Preferences -> Main Menu
Here you are!
What I like in StarOffice Text is the zoom slider at bottom right:
