    That link works, make sure you click it rather than copy/pasting... The "r...ce_org" bit isn't the actual URI, it's just to shorten it for the forums.

    This link however, doesn't work -> http://www.evolutioncolt.com/pages/d...-2--ubuntu.php

    So, can you post the HOWTO on the actual forum or something?

    Re: HOWTO: Latest OpenOffice 2 Beta with Ubuntu Linux

    Thanks very much. Well done! The link on your first post is broken but I managed to download it from http://www.evolutioncolt.com/mainweb/?q=node/11

    There are two issues with the script that I mentioned. The first is that jre1.5 which is going to be downloaded by the script is not available anymore (or is not at the moment). The second is that the script doesn't check whether the dpkg database is locked or not. I had Synaptic open in another workspace by mistake.

    I've just installed the latest OO.org - has anyone else noticed the font rendering for some reason isn't quite as good as that in Gnome?

    OpenOffice release 1.9.m109 is out. Has anyone tried that already? Any idea how to install? Is it the same as the version 1.9.m104?

    You can download the script "ooo-auto-install-m100-en.sh.gz" from http://www.piai.it/Alberto/doc/ooo-debianize-en.html. Open it in gedit. Change every 1.9.100 to 1.9.109. Also change mandrakelinux to mandriva. Download OOo1.9.109 from www.openoffice.org (not necessary). Make the script executable and run the script. This will make you a deb file which you can install with dpkg.

    I will try this tomorrow, hope it just work the same. Btw, is removing the existing m104 version necessary? If yes, do I just delete the whole directory?

    Anyway, I will try this. Will post here.

    Just wonder when the actual release will be out.

    Regards.

    You can uninstall 104 with synaptic. But only "remove" not "completely remove". Then you can rename /home/*user*/.openoffice.org1.9.104 to .openoffice.org1.9.109 that way you'll keep your settings. After this you should install the deb.

    I've edited the autoinstall script to use the newest build 1.9.109.

    What's wrong with the openoffice.org2 entries in Synaptic?
