Comment 4 Manuel Hiebel 2011-03-29 23:53:29 CEST

I just installed clipart-openclipart, obviously there is no integration with the gallery of LibreOffice.

Can we added a rpm for this?
Comment 5 Ahmad Samir 2011-03-30 00:47:08 CEST
I'll see about the libreoffice galleries.

I searched (in repositories) and I not found the package libreoffice.org-openclipart to install in Mageia 1.

I installed the package clipart-openclipart - Open Clip Art Libraryâ, but it is not integrated with LibreOffice.

I changed the configuration of LibreOffice, in "tools", "options", "paths", but the images of "clipart-openclipart" aren't available in LibreOffice.

Any news about this package libreoffice.org-openclipart to Mageia 1?

Please add libreoffice-openclipart package.

Openclipart package alone is not very useful without being integrated into LibreOffice! Tha lack of integration is a very big missing piece...

Comment 10 Alejandro Diaz 2011-07-05 16:53:11 CEST
Well, there is a workaround as long as there is no libreoffice-openclipart package in Mageia:

1. Install clipart-openclipart-0.18-10mdv2010.0.noarch.rpm (yes, the clipart rpm from Mandriva 2010.1). This step is needed because the clipart files in Mandriva are stored in a different directory than Mageia, so the Mageia clipart rpm is not useful for our purposes...

2. Extract the files contained in openoffice.org-openclipart-3.2.1-0.2mdv2010.2.i586.rpm, and put all of them in /usr/lib/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/gallery/

Ready! now you have access to openclipart via LibreOffice :)

Comment 14 Jaroslav Krejci 2012-05-14 19:49:22 CEST
I have sugestion and solution:
1. Remove clipart-openclipart 2.0 from repo - this version is very chaotic sorted, it is useless for libreoffice
2. Add clipart-openclipart 0.18 - galleries sorted by themes, other linux distributions this version too
3. Create libreoffice-openclipart from this specfile (originally created for opensuse, then adapted for PClinuxOS and finally adapted for Mageia

This solution is very well tested on 60 PC in my school (Mageia 1). Today builded rpm again for my desktop - Mageia 2 rc1

@ Jaroslav

Thanks a lot for your help.

Unfortunately, dmorgan maintains more than 1300 packages, and he maintains Bugzilla too, so he doesn't really have time to do anything with your suggestions and solution.

Can you please consider becoming a Mageia packager?


You already know a lot, so it shouldn't take ages ;)

Comment 18 Dimitrios Glentadakis 2013-11-24 10:55:56 CET
I agree with Jaroslav.
It is better to have the openclipart-0.18 which is sorted by category
I wanted this for ffdiaporama and i have to upload here the rpm:

For LibreOffice, i found this extension:

which needs the package libreoffice-pyuno to be firstly installed

As i tried to install the extension without succes (i was asked for a password in the libreoffice extension manager!!), i suppose that it would be better the libreoffice-pyuno to be added in Suggests in libreoffice. This will prevent problems if a user wants to install an extension

Hi dmorgan,

Could you tell us how is your WIP package named on svn? It seems not to be libreoffice-openclipart or libreoffice-clipart.

http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/openclipart-org-integration/releases/20160122 seems to be newest version

Comment 21 Florian Hubold 2016-03-05 19:56:24 CET
There seems to be some confusion here. openclipart is a standalone package, which can be used outside of libreoffice. What is necessary is gallery data for /usr/share/clipart/openclipart added into /usr/lib(64)/libreoffice/share/gallery for making libreoffice search our packaged openclipart files.

Furthermore, the libreoffice-openclipart package that many distros offer and that is mentioned above, is something different and only provides the default libreoffice cliparts. The same content is contained in our libreoffice-core subpackage.

The libreoffice extension openclipart-org-integration does nothing more then adding an additional dialog to libreoffice, which will download from openclipart.org on demand into the users home folder and adds those images to the gallery, so this should also be avoided IMHO.

AFAICS, the package proposed by Jaroslav does something similar by generating gallery data and by duplicating the openclipart files into /usr/lib(64)/libreoffice/share/gallery which we should try to avoid as that would force users to download the same clipart files twice in most cases. But something similar could be merged into our openclipart package, so that it it only creates a subpackage with the gallery data for libreoffice. This is the same as Debian does for the openclipart2 package.

I'll try to take a look at it.
