    Re: How To: Install OpenOffice 3.2

    I got OpenOffice 3.2 installed, thanks to instructions found here: http://www.unixmen.com/news-today/71...32-rc2-is-out-

    The 3.2 apps are definitely installed. For instance, I can right-click on a text file, choose "Open with other application..." and all the OpenOffice 3.2 apps are in the list.

    However, none of the OpenOffice apps appear in the Applications->Office menu. Is there an easy way to make the shortcuts appear there? I suppose I could put them there manually, but that's tedious. Also, I have no idea what the executables for Writer, etc. are called, or where their icons are stored, so I couldn't do it that way if I wanted to.

    All the icons appeared in the Applications->Office menu after a reboot. I'm so used to NOT having to reboot for stuff to work, that I assumed I would see the icons appear right away.

    There is apparently some process that runs at startup, to update the panel menus with any newly-installed applications. Is there some way to invoke that process manually? I am a huge fan of Ubuntu's general lack of need to restart.

    Re: How To: Install OpenOffice 3.2

    i followed this guide without reading all of the posts afterward...

    if i did install 3.2, will it be updated through the normal package manager?
    also, if i want to undo it, is there a way to go back the old OO i had (i mean the one the go-oo develops and that ubuntu uses by default)?

    No. When the next OpenOffice release comes out, you'll need to install the new packages yourself, in much the same way as the first post in the thread instructs.

    Use synaptic to uninstall the OpenOffice 3.2 packages (they'll all be listed under "Installed (local or obsolete)", then re-install the old OpenOffice.

    I've been using openoffice.org's builds for some time now, due to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rg/+bug/510474 - which makes the ubuntu-supplied OpenOffice packages completely unusable for my work.

    Thank you so much for this. I'm a complete newbie to Ubuntu and this tutorial made upgrading my version of OpenOffice really simple.

    is the new OO supposed to have a new layout? i hardly notice a difference from the old one... maybe something went wrong with the install?

    kut77less,
    You're not opening 3.2 are you?
    On my PC it's
    openoffice.org3 -writer %U
    not
    soffice.bin
    The old panel icon or menu item is just not updated.

    Since your post is 3 days old, I'll guess you solved it.
