How to Install OpenOffice in Linux

Now came the new and revamped version of OpenOffice, and now we will follow these simple steps so that it can install on your Ubuntu:

Step 1: Obviously, download the version for linux debian based distributions of OpenOffice 3 from their website, www.openoffice.org (it says is the Linux DEB) and do not put the direct link because the problems have been having for the vast amount of downloads links are likely to change.

Step 2: VERY IMPORTANT - the uninstalled all OpenOffice applications earlier we could have on our team, as follows:
sudo apt-get remove openoffice *. *

Step 3: Unzip the file you got off, it would be something like this:
  tar-zxvf OOo_3.0.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz
and moved to DEB packages directory, something like this:
  OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS cd /
Step 4: Install ALL packages BSD way:
  sudo dpkg-i *. deb
Step 5: Change to the directory Desktop Integration like this:
  cd desktop-integration
and also install the DEB package of Desktop Integration
  sudo dpkg-i-debian-menus_3.0 openoffice.org3.0-9354_all.deb
And that's all, we already have up and running our new version of OpenOffice.

It is worth reminding that all the commands explained in this post are to introduce a terminal session and they need sufficient privileges to install packages.

Re: How to Install OpenOffice in Linux

Excellent instructive. I had already installed the beta version, but I did give the instruction for integration with the desktop. I also needed the instruction to uninstall version 2.0 of open office, which comes by default in Ubuntu, even in the Intrepid Ibex beta. As for it by terminal, as shown, if you can give a double click on each file. Deb, but did you see how many are? And it must be done in a sequential manner, ie one and then the next.
