LibreOffice 3.5.2 Packages for Slackware

After so many build failures, finally Eric has been able to build LibreOffice package and it's already at the latest update, 3.5.2. He has uploaded his build into his repository and now it's being mirrored to several mirrors, including my server.

There has been a lot of changes compared to the previous build and that was caused by the removal of the old StarOffice code and also dependency to Java.

Anyway, good to know that this build finally works because i also tried to build this package and ended up with my machine running for 5 days, but it ended with a failure.

You might get the packages from this repositories:
There has been a change in the configuration file once again. The new config file will be in .config/libreoffice, so you might want to move the config there before starting a new session of LibreOffice by using this command:
mv ~/.libreoffice ~/.config/libreoffice
