View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Open Office 3.1 from a CD

August 2nd, 2009, 05:37 PM
I took the big step to delete windows and install Ubuntu, as windows 7, according to newspaper reports will cost around R2 500 (sic). So far I am totaly surprised by Ubuntu. I just need to know how do I install Open office 3.1 on Ubuntu. I have Open office on a CD and would like to install it from the CD.

Which ubuntu did you install? ooffice should come already, with a standard install.

Do you have a net connection? If so, just run:

sudo apt-get install openoffice.org

Sorry. I misread. You want 3.1. Again, I wouldn't bother with the disk:
