A bit of overkill for wallpapers for my taste, but nice pics.
Hi leenie

Thank a lot for the info. I installed Libre Office as per your instructions and everything went perfect.

Hi Blaze and thanks for the welcome. Lxde works very well. This ee PC is still getting quite warm so If I was using this machine just on my own I'd probably go with microwatt still.

I will probaly have many more questions along the way, but I'll make sure to browse the forum first of alll.


Hello Magwit, and welcome to the wattOS forums. :)

I hope the libreoffice install went well. I also hope that you are enjoying your LXDE experience. If you encounter any problem, jus ask, please also check the R10 section in case the problem is something well known and solved before. Good luck! :)

No worry boss, stay  8)
Hi and welcome!
Libre Office is in synaptic package manager. You have to enter your password to get in. Do search for libreoffice and scroll way down inside window to find it. Right click on the entry that says "libreoffice" and select mark for installation. A window will open asking to mark additional required changes, mark them too. Then click apply at top of synaptic window. Another little window will open to confirm you want to apply changes. Click apply.
Hi All

A warm greeting from Finland to the WattOS community.

I am a Swede who moved to Finland a year ago. Since this is the birthplace of Linus Torvalds I suppose I should pay tribute by getting to learn and use Linux.

I have only tried Zorin OS 9 (An beginner friendly Ubuntu fork )on my regular laptop before.

Right now I have installed WattOS r-10 LXDE on my girlfriend's old Eee Pc just to save it from the scrapheap, and mostly for the fun.

Now I would like to install Libre Office for the first time. In Zorin Libre Office came preinstalled, and I understand in Watt OS this might get complicated for me.

The Libre Office site has a long detailed page about linux installs

The page also says "For normal everyday users we strongly advise that you use your distribution's installation processes, especially those with graphical interfaces. Check your distribution's help for how to do this."

I am new to the tools in wattOS (Zorin Os uses a software center)  Could someone give me a tip on installing Libre Office please?

Hi xfrank...does this problem still exist?

I have seen slowness on old systems the first time after install, but the menu cache typically takes care of this problem after install and running it a bit and after a reboot. If it still persists, let me know and I will research further. tks..

I have had this problem in the past, if you have not fixed it yet, I'll break out a laptop and plug it into an HDMI monitor and see if I can replicate and give you the steps. :) - Thanks for being patient.
