No swahili nor 'all upper case' here. Only plain English.

@saloniamatteo just let me explain how AUR works. Take also a look at

1) if a package has an issue, you contact the maintainer or leave a message in the package comments page, along with your workarounds/solutions

2) even if the maintainer will not reply or accept your help, you won't duplicate the package

3) the freeoffice-next package will be anyway deleted right now, as you got notified about the current status

If you want to help in maintaining the freeoffice package, first offer your help, then later I could think about adding you as co-maintainer. Sorry about being so hard but I cannot accept as co-maintainer someone that doesn't respect the basic AUR rules

Muflone commented on 2021-02-06 22:37 (UTC)

@philo good point

@saloniamatteo as explained in the deletion request, please don't submit duplicated packages only for a newer version of an outdated package.

package updated to the version 982-1

philo commented on 2021-02-06 10:50 (UTC)

Does not make sense to have 2 packages for the same program. Can't their respective maintainers collaborate ?

saloniamatteo commented on 2020-12-12 06:42 (UTC) (edited on 2020-12-12 07:58 (UTC) by saloniamatteo)

For anyone that wants to download the latest version, you can install my package freeoffice-next, it is more updated.

sticsk commented on 2020-09-15 19:42 (UTC)

Yeah looks like the AUR is outdated, just get the software from freeoffice official website, it's a tarball there with a script that installs the thing locally

Hi, to anybody struggles with missing icons on dock on Gnome, I found solution here.

Fast copy paste:

sudo bash -c "echo StartupWMClass=pm >> /usr/share/applications/freeoffice-planmaker.desktop"
sudo bash -c "echo StartupWMClass=pr >> /usr/share/applications/freeoffice-presentations.desktop"
sudo bash -c "echo StartupWMClass=tm >> /usr/share/applications/freeoffice-textmaker.desktop"

@Muflone, Could you add these lines after install command with *.desktop files?

echo StartupWMClass=tm >> "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname}-textmaker.desktop"
echo StartupWMClass=pm >> "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname}-planmaker.desktop"
echo StartupWMClass=pr >> "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname}-presentations.desktop"

Same error. Integrity failed for softmaker-freeoffice-974-amd64. The correct checksum is 74eabf718d7cdc8a0b6a0ec7938cdaeef2577c8d886f9489c36d4d853d25d08f.

@Muflone, the software was updated. sha256: e26659679c7eca0fd81f4ad354e01170f2f3cbda9f9f0a6faa617b5c7118e17c softmaker-freeoffice-974-amd64.tgz Thanks.

Noted. Thanks.

@philo clean your installation directory, you have a dangling freeoffice2018.tar file

Trying to install (upgrade) with aurutils failed:

==> Extracting sources... -> Extracting softmaker-freeoffice-973-amd64.tgz with bsdtar ==> Starting prepare()... xz: freeoffice2018.tar: File exists ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

EDIT-So I removed freeoffice 971 and then installed 973 successfully (with aurutils). Side effect:I had to give an e-mail address to get a free product key.

@axil42 2019-09-05: Revision 970

axil42 commented on 2019-08-26 16:36 (UTC)

Why is this flagged out-of-date? 966 seems to be the latest version, and I see the checksum issue is fixed.

Please correct the checksums: :: failed to verify integrity or prepare freeoffice package

To install it I had to skip verification, so all who what to build it now just edit PKGBUILD and replace the first sha256sum with SKIP


Muflone commented on 2018-12-26 16:07 (UTC) (edited on 2018-12-26 16:07 (UTC) by Muflone)

Package updated to version 944. Version 945 seems only for MACs

Dmitry173ul commented on 2018-12-19 15:27 (UTC)

Please, update the package checksums! I can't to build your package.

littlejones commented on 2018-12-17 06:31 (UTC)

Please update! It's not installing

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... softmaker-freeoffice-934-amd64.tgz ... FAILED
Can you please amend the PKGBUILD to provide the proper sha256sum for the softmaker-freeoffice-934-amd64.tgz file?
If not, perhaps updating to latest version (938?), with correct sha256sums? Thanks.

micman commented on 2018-10-17 10:58 (UTC)

@vorbote OK.

toropisco commented on 2018-10-16 16:01 (UTC)

There is a service pack with version number 938. See for details.

@micman familiarize yourself with the contents of pacman-contrib and the PKGBUILD man page. Your problem is trivial.

micman commented on 2018-10-13 00:22 (UTC) (edited on 2018-10-13 00:23 (UTC) by micman)

It's not possible to install the package for some validity check problem. I tried to install it by yaourtix, and after the failure with makepkg --skippgpcheck. Here's the result:

Revision 934 has appeared. Thank you for updating in advance.

Thank you

Muflone commented on 2018-05-20 17:02 (UTC)

package updated to version 631 for 64 bit only

galvez_65 commented on 2018-05-19 01:06 (UTC) (edited on 2018-05-19 03:20 (UTC) by galvez_65)

I looked at the 64 bit deb freeoffice and it no longer looks like the 32bit libs are required and should be replaced with their 64bit counterparts.

I edited the dependencies. it looks like the package builds and installs with the edited dependencies. The PKGBUILD is here

kgleason commented on 2018-05-18 12:52 (UTC)

The PKGBUILD from unixfox doesn't work if I try to use it with yaourt, but it works when I makepkg -s.

unixfox commented on 2018-05-17 09:09 (UTC)

PKGBUILD for the new version (2018):

lib32-libxrandr is an additional dependency on 64Bit systems, otherwise it will complain on startup about a missing

Version 698 is available, please update.

Muflone commented on 2015-01-10 15:37 (UTC)

@Alister.Hood unfortunately it was my fault, now it was fixed. Thanks for reporting it.

Alister.Hood commented on 2015-01-08 20:49 (UTC)

Planmaker is labelled in my menu as "Freeoffice Textmaker". I guess this is an upstream bug, but maybe we should patch it.

Muflone commented on 2014-12-25 10:18 (UTC)

Package updated to version 697

eikoninaru commented on 2014-12-23 23:53 (UTC)

FreeOffice 697 is available.

killermoehre commented on 2014-12-08 11:35 (UTC)

FreeOffice 696 is available.

Muflone commented on 2014-09-30 15:15 (UTC)

@Voice this package provides SoftMaker FreeOffice, not Office 2012. the latest available version for Software FreeOffice is 690

Voice commented on 2014-09-23 00:19 (UTC) The current revision of SoftMaker Office 2012 for Linux carries the revision number 691

Muflone commented on 2013-06-13 19:46 (UTC)

for future references: unfortunately both tar.gz, rpm and deb packages contain only 32 bit binaries, neither source code nor 64 bit binaries are available at all in any form.

toropisco commented on 2013-06-13 12:55 (UTC)

Forget about it. I didn't examine the other packages before making my comment. (I had forgotten I had installed it while having multilib enabled a while ago).

toropisco commented on 2013-06-13 12:39 (UTC)

Have you considered using either the deb or RPM packages? There are native x86_64 binaries if you go that route. You could use the google-chrome-{stable,beta,dev} packaging as examples of how to do that.

Muflone commented on 2013-06-12 16:31 (UTC)

First package release with build revision 676
