I wanted to install openoffice.org on my PPC iMac. I have ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid. Currently there's no PPC version of openoffice for Linux. Is there a way to download the sources code and compile it? If I did this would I need to download Java Runtime Environment?
I know it might be time consuming to install openoffice.org from source but I'm interested in a challenge.
If I find other programs that don't have ppc installs does it usually work to build them from source or am I usually out of luck?
