gcc2 must die

my_jreTFO4mucommander.hpkg.zip

Bundle of my openjre+TFO4+muCommander -- gcc4 and gcc4/2

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

gcc2 must die

++1

I was also thinking of offering my applications just for gcc4 .

Seeing the success and potential of clang/llvm (and seing that clang has now better c++11/c++14 support with less bugs.... ) i would even like to see gcc become just optional and making clang/llvm the standard.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Are there any news about the printing support or the pdf-creation-ability for Thinkfree Office/OpenJDK on haiku?

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

I did not check the office after activation, because I didn't buy it. it. I'm not sure it is working after that.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Someone can try on latest Haiku Nightly these three java applications? (first of all you need to compile the latest OpenJDK for Haiku with PCM/Audio support)

http://jajuk.info/index.php/Main_Page

http://code.google.com/p/jukes/downloads/list

http://www.atunes.org/?page_id=6 (Cross-platform Installer)

These three apps, when i attempt to play any audio file, crashs media_addon_server.

Thanks!

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Yes I would much appreciate it if folks could test out some audio apps. Audio output works fine for me but it seems others have had issues with it. Here's a recent build with audio support: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/61946213/j2sdk-august.tar.xz

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Thinkfree Office works fine for me since hrev44384. Now i run hrev44543 and still works fine.
On my system (real hardware) i have 6 GiB of ram.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

hello 3deyes
thanks alot for the links and the this script,but for me think office doesn't seem to work properly,writer launches but i can't write nor read anything tried opening a RTF doc opens a zombie blank page,and calc sucks up all my ram,but that could be because i'm using a somewhat older rev hrev:44295-gcc2-h,or maybe it's because it's a gcc2-h system?
but there is another office,called j-office did you try that one?

I have the same problems. Calc freezes Haiku, so that you can not do anything. You have to reset

hrev44543 gcc4h on real hardware.

The installation looks cool. Sh script and notifications beside Deskbar.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

RAM size?
You can try playng with the start parameters of java. You can change the size of the heap and stack in the startup file - /boot/home/config/settings/tfo4/startup.

Important: Startup file should be only ONE line. Without NewLine at the end.

1 GB RAM

OK. I just have to find the time to do it...

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

3deyes - thanks for this installer script. I haven't yet used any other programs except TFoffice, but having access to a modern office suite is such a life saver. Think I'll likely end up buying this...

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

I tested the TFOffice in gcc2hybrid, gcc4only, gcc4hybrid - everything works. This is a very strange bug. I have seen this bug when running in a virtual machine only. I started working system with a working office via qemu in Linux (ex. qemu -m 1024 -hda /dev/sd....) . The working area is not drawn. On real hardware it works fine.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

the bug seems to be related to the vesa driver only,it works just fine on another pc that has a native driver,needs confirmation by somone else though.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Everything works except printing or saving to PDF,

There is a missing font something file for saving to PDF.

ThinkFree Office cannot find a printer. I bet this is an OpenJDK issue.

Is the same for me.

I think is due to the fact that OpenJDK port for Haiku, at the moment has no support for printing.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

JOffice requires SWT library, which is missing in haiku port.

Nice screenshots, 3dEyes!

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Might be better to make a script that repackages Thinkfree Office... so you could just run it to get the latest. And it would probably avoid license concerns.

ThinkFreee Office 4.0 installer

This script - TFO4Installer-0.1a.sh.zip:
1. Download mac version of TFOffice from official site.
2. Download JRE.
3. Download my binary launchers for office.
4. Extract required files from mac distribution
5. Install TFOffice into /boot/apps directory
6. Make deskbar menu links

If you want installing office offline, you must manually download this files and put them into script directory:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4494939/javasoft/tfo4launcher.zip

Re: ThinkFreee Office 4.0 installer

The script no longer works with the latest Haiku. It looks like the changes made to the file system permissions don't allow it to install anymore. Are these changes due to the new package manager? Can anyone fix the script?

Thanks,
Scott

@kim1963: Thanx a lot!

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Is there a .hpkg file for OpenJDK?

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

Copy *.hpkg to /boot/home/config/packages/

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

at kim1963 your hpkg seems to install. When double clicking the TFO icons the program does not start.
I am using the latest nightly 46326. Any ideas?

  • at kim1963 your hpkg seems to install. When double clicking the TFO icons the program does not start.

Only gcc4 and gcc4-2

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

I mean: Is there a download link for OpenJDK?

Re: ThinkFreee Office 4.0 installer

i suppose this will not work on old low specs machine. any good web browser for java?

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

I thought about it. It's a good idea. I'll try.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

hello
this question has been asked already but i'll ask it again,
are there any instructions on how to use thinkfree office on haiku?

thanks.

Re: Apps that i use on Haiku (OpenJDK)

I make a ThinkFree Office package based on the trial linux version. Add binary launchers instead of the shell-scripts. Add utility for registration all supported file types. Maybe it violates the license agreement, but i can't see any way to run this program under haiku. I send mail about this problem to the ThinkFree company a month ago, but they not responded.
