LibreOffice Portable

Localized help packs?

Submitted by christian.kissing on January 27, 2011 - 3:48pm

I was delightet to see that - just as LibreOffice itself - LibreOffice Portable now comes as a multilingual install. Saves a lot of hassle diving for the right package.

Are there any plans to pack localized help packs in a portable installer as well?

So far I've helped myself by a) saving the original .xsl files in
into a zip archive then copying the contents of
[systemdrive]\Program Files\LibreOffice 3\Basis\help\
into that folder.

Long Paths and Odd Characters

Known issues state, "LibreOffice doesn't like running from overly long paths. So, while it will work directly from your desktop... if you have it within a subdirectoy on your desktop, it will probably fail claiming that some files are corrupted."

Mine doesn't run on the desktop or anywhere on my computer. I wanted to try out LibreOffice without installing it. I don't know if it is LibreOffice or the portable version, but after putting it onto my flashdrive and opening it up, it doesn't function.

According to the LibreOffice Portable support page (, the easiest way to get Java on your portable device is to install Java locally and then use Java Portablizer. Wouldn't installing jPortable ( be the easiest solution?
