It will install the Generic Linux non-distro specific version from SUN Microsystems alongside (at the same time) with the existing Ubuntu OO install. The 3.1.1 that is included with Karmic Koala is a distro (Ubuntu) specific version that has MANY differences; among them are:

    1) Ubuntu OO is installed to a different location than the SUN variant.
    2) Ubuntu OO has 3D OpenGL acceleration.
    3) Ubuntu OO has complete integration with the Ubuntu distro (desktop, etc).
    4) Ubuntu OO has full functionality of animation and multimedia.

    I believe that the Ubuntu OO is a derivative of the GO OpenOffice.


    ****IF YOU WANT TO ACTUALLY UPGRADE****

    You need to WAIT. Probably by the end of this week (Feb 15th, 2010) there will be an upgrade path available by adding this repository to your sources (SYSTEM>ADMINISTRATION>SOFTWARE SOURCES, click the "Other Software" Tab, click the ADD button and copy & paste this ppapenoffice-pkgs/ppa into the dialogue.)

    Then run Update Manager and you should be able to UPGRADE.
    Excellent advice and bear in mind, removing OO 3.1 from Ubuntu also removes metapackage Ubuntu desktop so when you chose a path to upgrade to Lynx rather than fresh install, you will run into issues.

    BTW, will that PPA use go-oo or vanilla openoffice?

    So you're saying that going the PPA route will give me issues? Or you weren't addressing my question, just reiterating a previously made point? And what exactly does PPA mean?

    Re: How To: Install OpenOffice 3.2

    doesn't look like the ppa https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa has been updated.

    is there going to be an upgrade path for Jaunty or should I give up and install it manually from Sun? would prefer a proper update if possible.

    or am i looking at the wrong ppa? that ppa only shows Hardy in the filter!

    Remember that "end of the week" phrase? Well the 15th was only about 3 days ago...

    I'm just being patient and waiting with bated breath. I'd still like an answer to my earlier questions, especially these two:

    "Are there any caveats with adding this ppa?

    If I choose to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.4, will there be any issues with openoffice resulting from this?"

    No, using the PPA is safe, because you can always use Synaptic to force a downgrade.

    No, the Lucid Lynx packages will have different numbering and upgrading should not be a problem. Also non-standard (third-party) repositories are disabled during upgrade.
