    Re: OpenOffice.org 3 on 8.04.1

    Hi.
    I think I wanna try the 3.0 version but not sure yet.
    It is still a beta and it seams to still have some bugs.
    If I install it, what is better and what is worse with it?
    Any new features or functions???

    OpenOffice 3 has passed the beta staging hence it's general release as of yesterday 13/10/2008. To try the newer version you'll need to uninstall your existing OpenOffice. sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

    **Notice**

    I have stated that you need to uninstall the older version of OpenOffice before installing OO 3, this is not the case and I apologise for any confusion.

    Re: OpenOffice.org 3 on 8.04.1

    Noob issue here. Not sure if I messed this up or what. I downloaded and installed OOo 3.0 by unpacking the deb files and running "dpkg -i *.deb" from the directory containing the unpacked file. It went through and installed. I then read about uninstalling the 2.4 version, so I did that and went through the install routine again, as I still did not see any shortcuts to OOo applications in my Applications/Office menu.

    Next, I tried running "/opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice" and got an error message at the end, both in an Open Office 3.0 window and in terminal that "sunjavaplugin.so could not load Java runtime library" and it pointed to a truncated filename.

    It sounds like this might be a path problem, but my Linux skills are still far too new to even begin to know how to correct this. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the replies, but I got it figured out.

    I'm grappling with the same "sunjavaplugin.so could not load Java runtime library" you had run into about three weeks ago.

    Now you've "got it figured out"; would you perhaps share with us how you managed to solve the problem? Thanks...

    Sorry that I didn't post that John. I didn't invent the wheel here, just figured out how to mount it to the cart.

    First, I installed SUN Java from the repositories (Ubuntu by default uses a GNU version of Java that some applications don't like). You want to apt-get install sun-java6-jre. You will need to "sudo" to have permission to do this.

    As mentioned, Ubuntu by default has a different flavor of Java installed, and it is the default. With Sun Java JRE installed, you still have to make it the default Java that applications see. To do this, there are two steps, both done at the CLI (if anyone knows how to do this in the GUI, please chime in). The two commands are as follows...

    sudo update-java-alternatives -l

    This shows you what Java versions are installed.

    sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

    This sets the default to the JRE version of Java.

    Running "java -version" will show that you have the correct version installed as default.

    As a side note, Firefox seems to like this as well.

    Same problem rasmith. Openoffice.org 3 won't start, lets me fill in my name etc in the dialogue it gives the first time you run it but crashes and returns:

    [Java framework]sunjavaplugin.so could not load Java runtime library:

    Tried following your instructions, but no change at all. No idea what the problem could be, very frustrating.

    Add these sources:
    For Intrepid:
    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main
    For Hardy:
    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu hardy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu hardy main
    Then update the system. You will get the latest version of OpenOffice.org, which will replace the existing version.

    Thank you very much for this info, Pidgin.

    Should we also install any keyring for this provider?

    (I'd wish to officially thank you, but I don't know why I don't see the "thanks" button any more since some time ago. I don't see either anyone's "thanks" or "thanked" counter. Has this feature been removed from these forums?)
