Hi :)

Err this guide deals almost entirely with worst case scenarios where LibreOffice 
is not in the repos.  LO is already in the repos of quite a few market leaders 
and other distros.  Even Arch has it in their repos already!

Debian and RedHat are just about to produce new releases for the first time in 
years, hopefully just after our release.

So, people are increasingly less likely to need to mess around with tarballs or 
anything trickier than a 3 click install.  Many other distros are just waiting 
for the proper release of LO.

I had a quick skim through the guide tho
 * de-install 'should' be uninstall or un-install 
The meaning was fairly clear but it is better as "Un-".  I changed the relevant 
heading to match the edited link and it works.

Also a few sundry tpyos and sepling mistakes but nothing exciting except 
openSUSE was writen as OpenSuse.

Do we use "dropdown" or "drop-down"?  I changed to the 2nd one.

Regards from
Tom :)

People please tell me what you think of the Install guide for Linux in the
wiki ...

If you need it to be converted to ODT you need to get me a heads up,
otherwise I won´t bother.


Do you have a link?


Sorry for that. Here´s it is:

PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP ...  (that´s brazilian sarcasm
for you gringos) ... proof read the hole document, I did not touch the part
that comes after the De-isntallation Instructions, so that is still up to
David (I really think it sould be supressed from Install procedures, maybe a
link somewhere to a "Problems / Considerations" page)

And of course I´ll bug my friends to hell that it´s my baby so if there will
be some credits passed aroud send please some my way (greedy smile :))))

Congrats to everybody this team. This was WAY MORE easy to contribute than I
had ever dreamed of, this is the way you get people to support your project
