thanks for the info, but is it possible for me to use it as it, meaning in English as most pc users here understand English. how ever i am working on to be in the native language (has alot of work to restructure the accents).

what i had in mind was either the dvd you guys made as is and just packaged by me for distribution, or finding the software files able for offline install and make a flash auto-start with links to the exe files (as most are windows users) and links to the online download for Linux and mac which i think might even fit on a CD.

also note that i am NOT a software programmer, so something's need to be as simple as possible (the same goes for me when i am translating)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-website] working on a CD distribution disc for LO

I have no issues for you to create a distribution disc for your local
language based on the NA-DVD.  I used the original themed German
language DVD as the starting place for the English language North
American DVD.

You can start with
which has the older theme, but it is easier to modify than the newest
theme that
is now using.

If you want to have some of the really old version of the files in Zip
files, you can got to this page and download all the theme files and see
the folder structure.  This page is for 3.3.1 installs from March 11th.

These pages will help you get started, if you do not want to create an
online version with the CMS server system.  I would recommend to design
your DVD offline first, then if you want to add an online version for
your language, then the CMS site might be an option for you.

May i ask if i may be able t download and distribute if not translate the project in maltese for the locals here as most net connections have a download limit, and distributing the discs for free like in our capital is a huge marketing advantage.

With working on the old P-III system, I decided to make a simple stripped down CD distribution/install disc for LibreOffice. It is not browser based like the original NA-DVD, but these old CD only systems would be quicker to not to use a web browser to deal with the install files.

This way, those who do not have a DVD drive and do not have broadband access, will be able to install LibreOffice.

I have included 3.3.x and 3.4.x Windows installs, the JRE, the documentation folder, and some basic dictionaries.

I added a PDF printout of the LO web site Windows installation info and a Read-Me-First document that tell the person to install the JRE first [since you get an install error freezing the install till JRE is installed].

Right now it is 697 MB. K3B states that I have 5.5MB free space on a CD, so the CD is as full as it gets.

I could have more space if I choose either 3.3.x or 3.4.x versions, but I wanted the users to have that option.
