Readme for Milestone 10 ( Integration Candidate 1 Developer Snapshot of the chart reimplementation )
The chart reimplementation is still ongoing. Be aware that this version is not an official build but only provided for testing purposes. It still contains bugs and incompatibilites. So don't use it for regular work. If you create documents with this version do not distribute or keep them as they might not be correctly loaded in official builds. As this is a developer snapshot build it should not conflict with your normal OpenOffice.org version on your computer. Please don't use the 'online update' feature as this will not work with the developer snapshot.
How to install:
Just extract and start:
Just exrtact the zip file to YOURDIRECTORY and start YOURDIRECTORY\OOo_2.1.195_Win32Intel_install\program\soffice.exe
Just exrtact the tar.gz file to YOURDIRECTORY and start YOURDIRECTORY/openoffice_chart2_milestone10/program/soffice
Just exrtact the tgz file to YOURDIRECTORY and start YOURDIRECTORY/openoffice_chart2_milestone10/opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
Note, that the installation is intended for single-user usage. The user configuration is stored inside the installation path, so users can usually not access the configuration, because they do not have the correct file permissions. Besides, no more than one user should access the configuration at a time.
The advantage of having this is that de-installation works like described below, by just removing the entire installation-directory.
To allow multi-user installation you have to patch the
(on Windows the file is called
bootstrap.ini). Do the following
change in this file:
- UserInstallation=$ORIGIN/../.ooo-dev2 + UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/.ooo-dev2-chart2mst10
This will install the user configuration in the user's home directory in a
.ooo-dev2-chart2mst10. If you have more than
one OOo developer snapshot you should also use different names, like suggested
here by adding something to the name
.ooo-dev2, to avoid
conflicting configuration between those snapshots.
How to deinstall:
Just remove the directory to which you extracted.
