Summarizing past instructions -- this works as of today:

1. apt-get install ia32-libs-openoffice.org
2. apt-get install libstlport4.6
3. echo "deb http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/openoffice.org ./" >>
4. apt-get install openoffice.org-debian-files=1.1.2-2+1.0.1
5. download zlib1g_1.2.2-1_i386.deb from a Debian mirror
6. dpkg -X zlib1g_1.2.2-1_i386.deb /emul/ia32-linux
7. ldconfig

If additional libraries are needed, repeat 5-6-7 for each.

I did all your steps but i'm stuck on this error message:

OpenOffice.org for Debian - see /usr/share/doc/openoffice.org/README.Debian.gz
running openoffice.org setup...
/usr/lib/openoffice/program/setup.bin: error while loading shared

setup failed (code 0).. abort

I got installed that library on  /usr/lib/libz.so.1

I read the Readme file but i didn't find any clue.


Hi Narciso,

You're getting this message because Openoffice isn't finding the 32-bit emulation library version of zlib1g. The zlib1g you have installed in /usr/lib doesn't help -- you need one in /emul/ia32-linux/lib.

From this error message, it looks like you didn't follow steps 5-6-7. Did you download zlib1g_1.2.2-1_i386.deb from a Debian mirror? -- for instance from ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/z/zlib/zlib1g_1.2.2-1_i386.deb

This is the tricky part of the installation -- once you get it, it works fine. Just install as in #6 above and run ldconfig.
