openoffice-base-devel doesn't need it anymore but the stable one still wants it though namcap stopped detecting needed. i'll add the dependency again. please check also for other reoved deps.
Comment by Gerhard Brauer (GerBra) - Tuesday, 17 June 2008, 16:01 GMT
I removed/tested most of the changed depends.
Help-Function worked fine without the java things.
But i've found one broken:

fontconfig
/opt/openoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libfontconfig.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Don't know exactly if fontconfig is always satisfied, it's not in core.
Comment by Glenn Matthys (RedShift) - Tuesday, 17 June 2008, 16:37 GMT
Both openoffice and fontconfig are in extra, why should fontconfig be in core for this?
Comment by Gerhard Brauer (GerBra) - Tuesday, 17 June 2008, 16:52 GMT
I mean (my english isn't the very best):
soffice doesn't start without fontconfig, but fontconfig isn't a depend in this new version. And i don't know exactly if we can assume that fontconfig is installed on a user system (ok, with X+WM+xf86-fonts-* it should be so).

Comment by Glenn Matthys (RedShift) - Tuesday, 17 June 2008, 16:56 GMT
Yes, that's why it's a bug that fontconfig is not in depends=(), so it will be fixed in the next OOo package release.
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Wednesday, 18 June 2008, 09:43 GMT
Fontconfig is a dependency of cairo, which is a dependency of pango, which is a dependency of gtk2. I guess gtk2 is also a dependency of openoffice-base, so I see no need why fontconfig should be a direct dependency for openoffice.
Comment by Aaron Griffin (phrakture) - Friday, 20 June 2008, 16:51 GMT
Closable? Seems Jan is correct here, that fontconfig should be in the dep tree.
Comment by Glenn Matthys (RedShift) - Friday, 20 June 2008, 16:55 GMT
Uhh guys I think we're forgetting about the libsndfile dependency?
Comment by Aaron Griffin (phrakture) - Friday, 20 June 2008, 16:58 GMT
Oh whoops, I just read the last few comments and forgot about the actual title of the report 8)
Comment by Daniel Cestari (dcestari) - Wednesday, 25 June 2008, 17:47 GMT
I can confirm this bug.

From a clean core install, all I did was.
# pacman -Syu
# pacman -S gnome xorg gnome-extra
# pacman -S jdk jre
# pacman -S openoffice-es openoffice-spell-es openoffice-base

And open office complained about this:
$ soffice
no suitable windowing system found, exiting.

Then, after installing libsndfile:
# pacman -S libsndfile

I tryed again and it worked just fine.
