This gives you some hints on OpenOffice, please notify me if you want to change something in the wiki (tpowa - package maintainer). The packages are not source compiled packages; only's binaries are packaged for pacman.

OpenOffice 2 Setup


  • First install a Java Runtime Environment (optional, highly recommended):
# pacman -S j2re
  • Download the base:
# pacman -S openoffice-base
  • Install one or more language packs. This is optional as English is already included in the base:
# pacman -S openoffice-XX (where XX is a language)
  • Install spellchecker files (optional):
# pacman -S openoffice-spell-XX (where XX is a language)
  • Spellcheckers and language packs for other languages can be found in AUR.


Run '/opt/openoffice/program/soffice' to setup OpenOffice2 for a regular user on first startup and to start OpenOffice2.

OpenOffice2 introduces the ability to use several toolkits for drawing and integrate into different desktop environments in a clean way. To choose by hand, you need to set the OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP environment variable, either system-wise (like in /etc/profile.d/) or in the specific shell OpenOffice is running in.

To run OpenOffice in GTK2 mode, you can issue (using bash):

 # OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome soffice

Perhaps you would like to put it in /usr/bin/soffice:

 export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

or put it into ~/.bashrc

export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome


If you want to run a specific module of OpenOffice (Instead of the soffice default), for example, the word processor (Write), spreadsheet (Calc) or presentation (Impress), check for the following script frontends:







Math (Formula Editor)


Base (Database frontend)


Printer Administration (Recommended to run as root)


Known Problems

  • If you have problems while upgrading from OO 1.1.x to OO 2.x try this:

- If the install wizard asks you for taking old options from 1.1.x deny that.
- Remove old .openoffice* dirs from your <home>
- Remove old OpenOffice* dirs from your <home>
- Remove .sversionrc from your <home>

  • To remove menu entries from OO 1.1.x in KDE:

- Remove ~/.kde/share/applnk/OpenOffice*

  • If you can't read/write on NFS disks edit /opt/openoffice2/program/soffice you may have to disable file locking by commenting out :
# file locking now enabled by default
  • If it does not start with possible error javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!

and then you get a plain error dialog about init failed then remove your ~/.openoffice2 dir

  • If your OpenOffice fails to start, verify that you have proper permissions in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, by looking at your DRI settings.
  • If in doubt, this configuration should work:
 Section "DRI"
 Group "users"
 Mode 0660
  • Or, if you don't want to enable DRI and related stuff, run it as ROOT
  • If the setup wizard pops up everytime openoffice is run (and performance is poor, keeps hanging) then check permissions on ~/.openoffice2, it might be owned by root

OpenOffice 1.1.4 Setup


  • Download the base
# pacman -S openoffice-base
  • You must install a language pack, otherwise it will not run! (English is not included)
# pacman -S openoffice-XX (where XX is a language)
  • Spell Checking requires additional packages!
# pacman -S openoffice-spell-XX (where XX is a language)


OpenOffice quickstarter is available for KDE

# pacman -S oooqs


  1. Run '/opt/openoffice/setup' to setup OpenOffice for a regular user
  2. Run 'soffice' to start OpenOffice.
