    How to geet open office to show up in the SliTaz menu.


    I have been playing with SliTaz 4.0 in a VM, and really like it. My problem is that I have downloaded both libre office and open office from the repositories and installed them, but niether one shows up in the Office menu, or anywhere else I can find. Checking the SliTaz panel, it shows that it is indeed in the cache. How do I get it to show up? Thanks for helping me understand this.

    Though I don't run Slitaz. It looks to me like it runs openbox with a Lxpanel. Pretty much edit menus like LXDE would be my guess.
    en:handbook:desktop [SliTaz Doc]
    Does Slitaz have a package for lxmed?

    I use lxpanels in fluxbox in my AntiX 11 base install M/C desktop and I use Lxmed to edit Lxpanel Menus to add things like Libre Office manually.

    Thanks Roky, I'll do that if I can find where it is. So far I can't figure out where it is stored, or how to access it. I would swear it wasn't installed, but when I try to install it a second time from the repository it says it is already on my system. I found a reference to enabling non-free installation, but SliTaz 4.0 doesn't have the check box the post mentions.

    Might help. Might not.

    I use run/gexec to open things sometimes when no menu entry is present just to test that things/install went OK or the terminal.

    Though I installed mlocate/locate in since Puppy since that command does not come in default install.

    Thanks for the tips rocky, the locate turned up:
    root@slitaz:~# locate openoffice
    /root/get-openoffice
    /usr/share/icons/SliTaz/mimetypes/32/openofficeorg3-database.png
    /usr/share/icons/SliTaz/mimetypes/32/openofficeorg3-drawing.png

    /usr/share/icons/SliTaz/mimetypes/32/openofficeorg3-oasis-spreadsheet.png
    /usr/share/mime/application/vnd.openofficeorg.extension.xml

    Now I just need to figure out how to get the menu to see it, or install properly. Guess google will be my new best
    friend.

    I removed and reinstalled open office, even downloaded, upacked and installed from apache, still no Open Office. I finally gave up and installed Abiword with no problems, which is actually a better choice for what I will use SliTaz for. Thanks Rocky for talking me through all the attempts. It seems that while it is reported as installed, I can't get it to open, even from a terminal with the correct path.
