Description C.W.Holeman II 2011-01-22 12:26:37 UTC


I suggest a change from:

> sudo dpkg -i *.deb
> The above dpkg command does the first part of the installation process. To
> complete the process, you also need to install the desktop integration
> packages. To do this, change directory to the "desktop-integration" directory
> that is within the "DEBS" directory, using the following command:
> cd desktop-integration
> Now run the dpkg command again:
> sudo dpkg -i *.deb

to something like:

> The following commands will install LibreOffice and the desktop integration
> packages (you may just copy and paste them into the terminal screen rather
> than trying to type them):
> sudo dpkg -i *.deb
> cd desktop-integration
> sudo dpkg -i *.deb

The purpose for the change is to make it easier for the user to perform the install.
By having the three command together a single copy/paste can be used which reduces
the chance for typos or other errors. It also, improves the visibility of the actual
commands the user is to enter thus making the install faster along with easier.
