@Muflone: I understand.

@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: if you'd add me as co-maintainer, I'd gladly delete freeoffice-next.

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as explained in the deletion request, please don't submit duplicated packages only for a newer version of an outdated package.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

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

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

Yeah looks like the AUR is outdated, just get the software from freeoffice official website, it's a tarball there with a script that installs the thing locally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