Trying to upgrade to Open office 3.1 I somehow managed to delete the whole bang-shoot. So I thought I'd head for the package manager and start from scratch again. It seems I've deleted dependencies all over the place - I can't install via Synaptic or using an open office CD...

Any help with sorting this out please?

This is the error message I get when I try to mark open office.org-core:

openoffice.org-core:
Depends: libdb4.7 but it is not installable
Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (>=2.14.1) but 2.12.9-3ubuntu5 is to be installed
Depends: libhunspell-1.2-0 (>=1.2.4) but it is not installable
Depends: libhyphen0 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libneon27 (>=0.28.2) but 0.27.2-1 is to be installed
Depends: libstlport4.6ldbl but it is not installable
Depends: ure but it is not going to be installed

I've also noticed that some of the options have the box filled in green, I can't select them...

Any suggestions for how I can fix this most appreciated.

Thanks, ruby

Not sure if this will work but. Go through your list of dependencies,find and install them via synaptic one by one.

Green filled box means already installed.

Thanks Phil, will give it a go - my biggest problem seems to be that many of the other options I choose kick up a similar problem about dependencies...
So I guess it's a pain thing.
Oh well.

Thanks again, ruby

One thing to try is this. Before the above.

Use synaptic and mark for complete removal of any openoffice* packages.

Then in terminal use

sudo apt-get autoremove.

Then try to install openoffice from synaptic again.
