Barry,
I've been hoping to hear from David Nelson, who may know more than I
about the state of the docs about installing on Linux. Here is a wiki
page, which may or may not be the one currently under development:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_LibreOffice_on_Linux
I also have a copy of this in ODT; I'm not sure if both are in sync,
but I believe so. I don't see it on the wiki (though it may be there
and I can't find it), so I will send a copy directly to your gmail
address if you like.

At some point you will probably want to get an account on our Alfresco
content management system website, but learning your way around that
might be a bit much at this point. You are welcome to get a wiki
account and edit the page there, or edit the ODT that I can send you.

BTW, the instructions we give are for people downloading LibreOffice
(LO) from our website and installing it themselves. It is installed in
a different location from any version of LO that may come with your
distro and/or be installed from your distro's repository. We should
probably mention that when writing/updating docs about using LO on
Linux.

We definitely do need help; the group does not have enough people to
do all that is needed... or sometimes even to identify what's needed.

Tom:

Thank you for the two sets of links.  I review them Wednesday
afternoon (was busy all day Tuesday, and I have to travel Wednesday
morning).

Again, I toss my hat into the ring to help, if I can.

Hi :)
Welcome in :)  Hopefully this wiki-page might help
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Development
but our wiki-pages have just grown kinda organically and sorting them out is
very low priority so it can be tricky finding what you need.  Hopefully that
page might help!
Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-documentation] Linux/Ubuntu user using KDE/kdm &
KickOff..

Focus:
Is there a way that I can access the work in progress documentation for
Linux...
and get involved in writing more of it... if you need my help?

Background / leadup --
I have been in Application Development/Enhancement for 30 years.
On occasion (maybe 3 years of that 30) I have been called to enhance
existing documentation to reflect changes.

I am currently trying to find any LibreOffice documentation dealing
with running under KDE.
After a few minutes of looking today, I was able to find MY
installation of LibreOffice in /usr/lib/libreoffice/program
not /opt/libreoffice/program where another forum somewhere told me to
look (thanks to the "which" command).

Yet, I am still trying to find help adding Libre Office (okay any app,
but I am focused on Libre Office) to KickOff (KDE's menu).

I eventually found the Libre Office documentation, and the Libre
Office documentation wiki ... and found out that Linux documentation
is still work in progress.

Is there a way that I can access the work in progress documentation for
Linux...
and get involved in writing more of it... if you need my help?
