Gnumeric rollback

April 21, 2010 — BarryK
Quirky 018 and Wary 019 have Gnumeric 1.8.4, compiled in T2. Testers report that it crashes when you select Format -> Cells in the menu.

I tried to compile Gnumeric 1.10.1 and 1.10.2, but both have errors in their configuration scripts and I was unable to compile them.

So, I am rolling back to version 1.8.2, the same PET package as used in Puppy 4.3.1. Ditto for Goffice, rolled back to 1.6.3.

If anyone has created a later Gnumeric PET (and Goffice) that actually works, let me know and I'll use it!

"The official Lucid Lynx goffice-0.8 .deb's download and 2createpackages has no problem with them, if you make these changes in DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-ubuntu-lucid to reflect the actual names of the .deb's: no|goffice|libgoffice-0-8,libgoffice-0-8-common,libgoffice-0-8-dev|exe,dev,doc,nls yes|libgoffice-0.8-8|libgoffice-0.8-8|exe,dev,doc,nls yes|libgoffice-0.8-8-common|libgoffice-0-8.8-common|exe,dev,doc,nls yes|libgoffice-0.8-dev|libgoffice-0-8-dev|exe,dev,doc,nls

goffice or koffice?

"1.6.3 not 0.8...perhaps you were thinking of koffice? Just add this line to DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-ubuntu-lucid yes|koffice|koffice-libs,koffice-data,koffice-dev|exe,dev,doc,nls Wuh-lahhh, koffice-2.1.2... Whether it *works well* or not, I haven't tried...
