Please add libgoffice-0.8-dev to PureOS repos
Closed, InvalidPublic


I'm trying to install GNUcash on PureOS. It requires libgoffice-0.8-dev. This package doesn't seem to exist in PureOS repositories:

tom@tom-librem:~/pkg/gnucash-2.6.19$ sudo apt install libgoffice-0.8-dev

E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libgoffice-0.8-dev'

ligboffice-0.10-dev does exist but doesn't enable cmake of gnucash.

I meant this URL as reference to goffice-0.8 on Debian 10

Which version of Gnucash are you trying to build? libgoffice-0.8 is removed from Debian testing (which PureOS is based on), but there is a newer version of Gnucash (2.7.3) in the Debian Experimental repositories, which require libgoffice-0.10.

Regarding the removal of libgoffice-0.8, see

(The bug is severity: serious, so it is keeping libgoffice-0.8 out of Debian testing).

Gnucash is not in PureOS either, because it has release critical issues in Debian which PureOS is derived from. Details at

Specifically, Gnucash uses an old insecure web rendering engine. When that issue is solved in Debian, Gnucash should re-enter PureOS automatically.

Closing this as (in itself) a non-issue for PureOS.
