SOLVED - FreeOffice 982 not launching - "Resources not found"

Dear all,

Installed the latest version on a fresh linux setup, but unfortunately not running.
Could you please advise? Error is attached.

Thank you,
Marcelo

It seems you have renamed "planmaker" to "freeoffice-planmaker". You can do that, but then you must also rename all *.dwr and *.iwr files accordingly.

Thank you for the explanation.
I was able to rename the iwr files, but couldn't find the *dwr files. The error persists.

root@ /usr/lib64/freeoffice # locate *.iwr
/usr/lib64/freeoffice/freeoffice-planmaker.iwr
/usr/lib64/freeoffice/freeoffice-presentations.iwr
/usr/lib64/freeoffice/freeoffice-textmaker.iwr
root@ /usr/lib64/freeoffice # locate *.dwr
root@ /usr/lib64/freeoffice #

Then you have a broken installation. Neither are these our original file names nor do have any *.dwr files.

You should re-install.

Hey there,
only the start-scripts where renamed, not the binaries itself, so that cannot be the issue, as they call the correct binary.

Planmaker for example looks like this:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
# A script to run Planmaker.

MACHINE=$(uname -m)

[[ $MACHINE == "x86_64" ]] && LIBDIR_SUFFIX="64" || LIBDIR_SUFFIX="32"

/usr/lib$LIBDIR_SUFFIX/freeoffice/planmaker "$@"
The starter calls the correct binaries itself. At last point, you're definitely shipping the *.dwr files. (at least softmaker-freeoffice-982-amd64.tgz containes them)

cheers.

Sorry, I have no idea what you are doing. I think you should start with a standard install, confirm that it works and then only change one thing at a time until it breaks.

If you have the executable "textmaker", it also needs textmaker.iwr and at least one .dwr file, such as textmaker_us.dwr

Likewise for planmaker and presentations.

Yeah, thought so.

Nvm. The binaries are untouched, only a startscript is wrapped around that. (Btw. we're using gentoo - so there is no oficiall installer for this on our systems)
Tbh. it works on all of my installations, only that one from reckor having that strange error message. But I think you pointed us into the right direction.

Many thanks.

The .tgz installer works on any Linux, so you could use it to create a model installation.

Yeah, but it's not a seamless integration into the packagemanager (portage). Nvm. as said, I think we're now able to track that issue down.

We let you know if we got it running and close this thread afterwards to avoid confusions. :)

Thank you both. Copying the *.dwr did the trick.
