Maybe I did something...
Anyway I don't have OpenOffice anymore.

It is enough to do:
sudo apt-get install openoffice ?

Thanks!

Ok I know now that openoffice package doesn't exist :P

So, what's the command for fully install openoffice? :P

sudo apt-get install openoffice.org

Good, that's the right one ;)

Anyway I get this error:


sudo apt-get install openoffice.org
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
openoffice.org: Depends: openoffice.org-writer but it is not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-calc but it is not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-impress but it is not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-draw but it is not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-math but it is not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-base but it is not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-report-builder-bin but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages




Any help?

Thank you!

If it helps I must say that I did install OpenOffice 3.0 by adding launchpad repos

I would just take out the open office 3 repo if you really dont need windows 2007/8 doccuments.
Revert to open office 2, there really isnt much in open office 3 woth of note except maybe better speed and .docx support but open office 2 should be fine enough too.

Yes, this is exactly what I want, but the big question is... How? :)

well make sure that all open office 3 packages are removed, use synaptic or command line or whatever to remove open office 3.
then take the open office 3 repository out of the lists and reinstall open office 2.

I was in a same situation on 27.11.08. I waited until today for launchpad-repos to get back on-line. But in a forum thread I read that they will not and, instead, OO3 will apper in JJ. In the meantime I tried several places and several .deb files to reinstall OO3 with no {luck, success,...} Finally today I wrote
$sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.* and installed native OO2.4 via Applications->Add/Remove OpenOffice.org Suite and I'm at peace until JJ. Since I write everything in TeX and OO is just for crossover tasks and to accomodate my (let's say) customers (statistical analysis) I am OK. You can try.
(In one of these forums a gyu attacked all of us that were inpatient by saying that an application is always a part of OS. I do not completely agree with him but now I am a bit closer ... Nevertheless, I learned a lot from tinkering with this these several days (27.11. to 01.12) :wink:

How can I make sure all OpenOffice 3 packages are removed?
Is this the reason I still can't install openoffice.org using official repos?

That worked perfectly for me. Thanks! Actually I really don't need OpenOffice 3, so after removing everything I am now installing 2.6 from official repos.
I'll wait to JJ ;)

Thank you!
