let me try to explain it better...
a user, open yast and select "office pattern"
it expect to install office applications that fit his DE.
actually that pattern always install OO.o
imho, it should work as following
the user select "office pattern",
if DE = kde --> patterns-openSUSE-kde_office
if DE = gnome --> patterns-openSUSE-gnome_office
if DE = xfce --> patterns-openSUSE-xfce_office
if DE = lxde --> patterns-openSUSE-lxde_office
where of course, gnome and kde install OO.o and lxde (and maybe even
xfce) will install lighter solutions like abiword,gnumeric ecc
That should solve even "tipical user" problem, because they use usually
kde/gnome, but also fix all the other users that if use xfce/lxde of
course do not want the heavy OO.o
i hope is a little bit more clear now.
I understood it that way, but will you install that based on the current
running DE? because you can always install multiple DEs, so you can't querry
I think this will be confusing to people, let's say I used KDE before and now
install LXDE on another system I want "office" to be the same on both without
You can create a lightweight office pattern and/or use it for the live cd, but
adding such nonobvious behaviour to the office pattern is contraproductive.

Well, I suppose this is an argument about whether
we are (a)
integrating LXDE into openSUSE, or (b) integrating openSUSE into LXDE.
I'd have to argue the first. And since openSUSE uses OpenOffice.org
as the default office suite regardless of DE (we install by default
OO.o on KDE despite KOffice), I don't see why that would be different
- James Mason 'bear454'
of course we are integrating LXDE into openSUSE, but is still true i
would like to provide a perfect integration, based to user wishes:
