I would try the uninstall part again. Then set up this ppa in your repos:

https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa
(https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa)

Then


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I did the same, but OpenOffice Word crashes every time. I only notice this when I exit the file. (I get a crash dialogue, but it mentions no error.) After enabling the launchpad repo and getting its GPG key set up, I did the following

sudo apt-get purge openoffice
sudo rm -rf ~/.openoffice*
sudo apt-get install openoffice

I opened an XLS spreadsheet document in Calc, and got no error, but haven't tried to modify any files yet.

the idea was to remove every thing related to old one
try synaptic and remove any thing related to openoffice then try to install 3.1

Hi Hero1900, Because you took the time to come back and post the solution you found, this problem only took me 5 minutes to solve.

Thank you!

sudo rm -rf ~/.openoffice*


If I do this, won't I loose all my personal settings for OO, fonts, margins, paper size etc?

Thanks

Jim

Glade to serve :wink: flibble (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=7661)
and for you jamaas (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=630) ya it will erase the hole content of the folder .openoffice so if you have some special fonts , things try to back-it-up
