Hi everyone. I'm new to this so sorry if this is a silly question. The 8.10 version comes with OO.org 2.x, how do I "upgrade" it to 3.x?

Thanks!

I updated OO.org to v3.0 using Synaptic Package Manager.
Works fine.

Hi,

I've gone through a number of threads with the same topic of "installing OpenOffice 3" but there are some differences.

Just to clarify, as I understood the posts, this is what should be done (please correct if I am wrong):

1) Remove all traces of OpenOffice via
Remove the old version:
sudo apt-get remove openoffice.org openoffice.org-base openoffice.org-base-core openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-common openoffice.org-core openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-evolution openoffice.org-filter-mobiledev openoffice.org-gnome openoffice.org-gtk openoffice.org-help-en-us openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-java-common openoffice.org-l10n-common openoffice.org-l10n-en-gb openoffice.org-l10n-en-za openoffice.org-math openoffice.org-style-human openoffice.org-writer


2) Once the old version is removed, ADD the following to sources:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main

3) Refresh/Reload Synaptic to recognize the newer OpenOffice, then use Synaptic to install OpenOffice 3.

My question, in Synaptic... will it show what version of OpenOffice is available?


Could I simply un-install OpenOffice using Step #1 and then go to the OpenOffice website and do the downloading of "Linux.deb" over there?

I read on another version of this topic that if you download straight from the openoffice.org website, it will not be fully-customized for Ubuntu... is this correct?

I'm pretty sure step one is only needed if you are trying to install the official openoffice.org debs from their website. It shouldn't be needed for the ppa debs. If they don't upgrade that would be a bug and should be filed in launchpad against the openoffice.org (ubuntu), the best way to do this is via openoffice.org program help -> report a problem.

The official openoffice.org website debs will not cleanly upgrade from Ubuntu and when you upgrade to a new version of Ubuntu it also will not cleanly upgrade until you remove those debs. This means you have to remove all the Ubuntu openoffice.org packages before installing the official debs and then before you upgrade Ubuntu you need to remove the official debs first. The official debs also do not include any of the integration and extra bug fixes that are in the Ubuntu version. The Ubuntu version has many extra bugfixes and features since it uses Go-OO (ooo-build).
