View Full Version : [ubuntu] Latest version of Gnumeric in repository request

November 2nd, 2009, 06:25 PM
Where do I make a request to get the latest version of Gnumeric put in the repository.

BTW the reason I want Gnumeric is that it starts up and runs my spreadsheets much faster than the heavyweight OpenOffice spreadsheet.

The speed difference is especially large with big matrix math functions.

Is there an easy way to upgrade by direct download tarbal or whatever?

I've never compiled/recompiled etc....

All requests should go to launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/gnumeric

The other way is to compile from sources, but it is not hat easy if you never did that. You'll need to install a lot of packages. Unless you can use the debian packages (from sid) which are up-to-date.

What would acquiring these up-to-date debian packages from sid entail?

Would installation from the debian packages be straight-forward?

I would check the PPAs to see if there is one. It is much easier to download them than compiling.
