Subject Re: AOO on Debian/Ubuntu via APT Repositories
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2013 15:12:50 GMT
Regardless, I think this is something the AOO community should support at least until distributions
such as Debian and Ubuntu start shipping AOO.
Adding the source packages is probably not a very big thing to do (Marcelo?), but any help
from the AOO Dev community should certainly help get it there.

That said, it would also be nice to see some KDE integration. Using Marcelo's repo I did install
it, but since I use KDE I don't get the benefit of file registrations, menus, etc.
The GNOME package was provided by AOO. Please do a KDE one too.

These things are little things that will help adoption of AOO go a long ways.
