    Wink How To: Install OpenOffice 3.2

    Firstly, go to the OpenOffice website: http://download.openoffice.org/ and download the Linux .deb file.

    1 - Once you have done that, extract the .deb file,

    OOo_3.2.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz
    Then you'll see a file called OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483

    2 - You can remove the existing version of OpenOffice if you wish with this command:

    sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*
    3 - Copy and paste OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483 onto the desktop then open Terminal and paste this command:

    sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483/DEBS/*.deb
    4 - Then paste this command:

    sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483/DEBS/desktop-integration/openoffice.org3.2-debian-menus_3.2-9472_all.deb
    Once you've done that you'll find OpenOffice 3.2 in Office.

    wow that was nice and easy. I had to do the remove command before it would do the last command.

    For some strange reason, this worked for me. I've been trying all day to do this, and been using those commands...but just copied and pasted right now, and it worked. Maybe I was mistyping...but I don't think I would have gotten that same error if I did.

    Re: How To: Install OpenOffice 3.2

    Would it be better/more secure/more efficient to wait for it in the repositories? Is there a way to automate the upgrade when that becomes available?

    I use Zotero, the Firefox plug-in, to handle bibliographies, is there likely to be any issues?

    Outstanding, thank you. Worked perfectly as advertised. I also noticed that 3.2 has fixed my dark theme problems

    I tried to follow all these steps. When I clicked Applications>Office, openoffice wasn't there. I'm now installing it through the synaptic package manager.

    Update: I forgot to say I'm using the 64bit of ubuntu studio. Synaptic finished installing and it just installed back the 3.1 version.
