Yes, I understand that the project exists in the sense you describe.
What I'm really asking is, doesn't the BrOffice project already provide
the function you're describing:
download the necessary packages (about 250MB, or less) and install them
and/or built a DVD specific for that user.

Ok. Sorry.

In other words, is there already a website that has a browsable
repository of LibO files?

The repository we use is the one provided by TDF at

For all the distros supported in your script, LibO will be installed in
/opt, so the destination for the addons and templates is well known, and
won't vary by distro.

I'd investigate offering a few choices based on the contents of the
/projectos/ page. Maybe throw in a few templates for good measure. Offer
a few combinations, then get the filles associated with each group via

That's what I was wondering how to do it. =D


In a general sense, I would think, that installing user specific
templates as sets, meaning groups of templates in an oxt wrapper, would
be rather straight forward. 

That is, given the installation having been carried out via a script, in
this case the script could then run unopkg and install the oxt payload
(templates, gallery graphics, and other types) as a final step. 

I suppose this means the script contents need to be generated using the
selections made by the user in a web interface. If you are talking about
doing this from a web server, via the net, shouldn't be a problem.
Thinking about doing that from a DVD maybe a bit more to it, but nothing
beyond doable.

Also, have you looked at the possibility of using more of the resources
of the Linux platforms. For instance the LibreOfficeBox de team is
integrating the needed files such that the directories present as an RPM
(not sure about DEB) repository. Sorry I don't have much detail on this,
but if you haven't looked at that it would be another possible way to
go, perhaps. 

Best wishes,
