[Libreoffice-qa] Testing Windows builds on Linux with PlayOnLinux now possible!

Hi Gouchi, all,

awesome news: Gouchi set up LibreOffice on PlayOnLinux (see
https://www.playonlinux.com/)! This means you can now install LibreOffice
Windows builds running in Wine with just a few clicks on Linux.

Please try it out and provide feedback here or at:

 https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87743

This should help a lot with triaging regressions, verifying fixes and
checking/confirming if bugs are playformspecific.

I hope this is highly helpful for QA work. Using this should be
straightforward, but if one of you wants to update docs in the TDF wiki or make
a screencast about this, that might make things even better.

Thanks a lot to Gouchi for the work on this!

Best,

Bjoern

Hi Bjoern, all,

Great that it works so well on PlayOnLinux. But how about Wine? Wine is
provided by a lot (all) of the linux distributions (and BSD?).
I tested it:

I tried to install LO 64 bit on my 64 bit Kubuntu box. This didn't work.
Then I tried to install LO 32 bit and that worked well. Only problem: I
can't open files. The filepicker doesn't work as it should.
But as far as I can see it the rest is working great.

Wine seems to me the obvious solution because it's so easy to install. To
bad that it does not work 100%

PlayOnLinux is an easy install wrapper for wine.

Best,

I just installed it on my 64-bit system using PlayOnLinux. The
filepicker works only if you choose the file first and then the "Open"
button. It will not work if you double click on the file.

Maybe this is the same on just a Wine installation?

Otherwise, thus far, it seems to work well installed with PlayOnLinux.

Cheers,

Marc

It is using wine. You don't need PlayOnLinux frontend. It would just
install necessary dependencies and similar.

There is 64bit wine and 32bit wine...

ciao
