Hi Marc,

Why ship an installer, when it is preferred to use the package manager
your Linux distribution? For Mandriva (on the console) do the following:

- go to the directory that has all the rpm packages
- su
- (enter password)
- urpmi *.rpm

That installs all packages in the necessary order, you don't have to do
anything else.

As alternative, it should also be possible to use the gui:

(I did not test this, but it should be easily doable)

- Use konqueror / nautilus / dolphin or any other file manager, change
the folder, that has all your rpms you want to install
- Mark all the files you want to install
- Do a right click and choose "Open with Software installer"
- Enter your root password in the popup
- Installation should be done automatically.



I had actually not installed any of the language packs as I just assumed
that they would work. But now that I am trying to add them .... I downloaded
the appropriate packs of English UK and French, unpacked them and installed
them. But the language don't show in the language setting in the
Tools->Options. They are all for 64-bit version.

Do you have a 64-bit system?
32-bit versions can be found here:

versions are here:

I don't expect a 64-bit version to work on a 32-bit system.

After you installed the language packs, you should be able to go to
Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages and select there the
language for your software interface, and the locale setting that suit you
best (affects the decimal delimiter and default currency in Calc). The
spellcheck should then also work for the selected language.

That those things can take effect, you have to close LibO (including the
quickstarter - if you use it) and start LibO again.

Did you try this?
