http://www.playonlinux.com allows easy 1-click installs of Windows software on Linux via Wine.
It would be great to have LibreOffice in there, so that is an quick-and-easy way to confirm Windows bugs reports on a Linux machine.
Assigned to myself, this is my first easy hack.

Bash Script for PlayOnLinux
I created this script to test the LibreOffice installation, tested on Debian x64 but i had wine crash. Can anyone test it and will tell me if is the same.

Modified orginal version
ok, now it installs and runs, but still crashes starting empty document. However, existing one opens without any problems. Need more time to investigate what's happening.
Yes, now it works for me too. I will try to investigate for the crash
add dev-list to cc for some EasyHacks ...
Massimiliano: I don't know the state of your work but if you can't advance on this one for any reason, don't hesitate to unassign yourself.
Hi @Julien, i decide to unassigned this bug to me. The work is hibernated at my last comment. We need more testing with the latest version of the script attached.
tell me if i can help you.

PlayOnLinux LibreOffice installation script
Assigned to myself.
Please find in attachment a script to install LibreOffice with PlayOnLinux:
- Fixed the crash with LibreOffice version 4.
- Support Local/Download installation for LibreOffice Fresh and Still.
I pinged the guys on #playonlinux on freenode IRC about it:
(12:36:31) Sweet5hark: Hi guys! Coming here first as your webpage names it as the first point of contact.
(12:37:46) Sweet5hark: Someone wrote a nice playonlinux install script for LibreOffice, it would be awesome to have that included so one could compare Windows and Linux versions directly.
(12:38:13) Sweet5hark: It's attached here: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87743
(12:38:23) Sweet5hark: Whats the best way to get it included?
(12:55:18) ideo-pol [~PlayOnLin@184.108.40.206] entered the room.
(12:55:25) petch2: hi, there's few things that can be discussed, either here or in the "Your creations" forum
(12:55:31) ideo-pol left the room (quit: Client Quit).
(12:55:57) petch2: then it can be added to the repository for validation

@Gouchi: Could you take it to the forum mentioned above for inclusion in PlayOnLinux?
Also from #playonlinux:

(copied below for archive):
$TITLE will have to match the script name in the repository, so I'd recommend against including the version here, or the script will have to be renamed when the version changes
Similarly, unless you want to support installing different versions side-by-side, I'd recommend not including version in the prefix name (or say not the whole version if you want to support installing different major versions).
On the other hand it could be useful to store the version in some variable to avoid repeating it in several places in the script.
POL_SetupWindow_browse "Please select the setup file to run." "$TITLE"
All user oriented messages must support localization mechanism
POL_SetupWindow_wait "$(eval_gettext 'Installation in progress.')" "$TITLE"
POL_Wine_WaitBefore displays a standard wait message, the POL_SetupWindow_wait is redundan
To follow the discussion :
Scripts have been submitted. Waiting for approval.

Aaand they are apparently approved. Awesome stuff! Will tell the LibreOffice QA list about it right away!
With the 'LibreOffice 5' installation script installing 5.0.4 and 5.1.0 coming out shortly, would the script be upgraded to 5.1 or would a new 5.1 installation script be done?
We can bump the version for the one downloaded from internet and if you need to install older version you can still do it with the local installation.
So that we can keep script for each version LibreOffice 4, LibreOffice 5 ...
What do you think ?
Hmm, keeping very old versions around is great for QA -- but I dont know how PlayOnLinux sees that, as those very old versions might have some security issues as they are unsupported by TDF.
Another option would be to have "LibreOffice fresh" and "LibreOffice still" like on the libreoffice.org website ...
As its possible to install older versions by downloading the exe and giving it to the installer, i would suggest keeping 1 script per major version and it always being the latest of that version. So with 5.1 releasing, the LibreOffice 5 script should be upgraded to 5.1. With that, we should also add a script for 'LibreOffice 3', which would install 3.6.7.
