View Full Version : [ubuntu] Reinstall Open Office

If I remove Open Office 3.0 with the add/remove in the applications menu and then add with the same add/remove menu, will I get Open Office 3.1?

No, you will not.

Openoffice Installation 3.1.0

Firstly, go to the OpenOffice website: http://download.openoffice.org/other.html and download the Linux .deb file.

Once you have done that, extract the .deb file, OOo_3.1.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz then you'll see a file called OOO310_m11_native_packed-4_en-US.9399

You can remove the existing version of OpenOffice if you wish with this command: sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

Copy and paste OOO310_m11_native_packed-4_en-US.9399 onto the desktop then open Terminal and paste this command: sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO310_m11_native_packed-4_en-US.9399/DEBS/*.deb

Then paste this command: sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO310_m11_native_packed-4_en-US.9399/DEBS/desktop-integration/openoffice.org3.1-debian-menus_3.1-9393_all.deb

Once you've done that you'll find OpenOffice 3.1.0 in Office.
