    Question Open Office 3

    Does anyone know when Open Office 3 will be coming to Ubuntu via the 'Update Manager'?

    Any help would be great.

    Ubuntu releases get security updates only, perhaps some major functionality additions here and there in terms of kernel updates.

    It is therefore unlikely that open office 3.x will be available through the ubuntu repositories for 8.04 and below.

    You can, however, grab the .debs from the openoffice site and install that. They can co-exist perfectly. If you like openoffice 3.x you can manually remove 2.4x

    If you are lucky someone may backport it here

    "OpenOffice 3.0.1, to be released on Dec. 2, is a bugfix only release and should prove to be much more stable than the current release. This release will be available on the backport repository."

    For download try the openoffice website. Note for 64bit, it ain't there so do a google search for the 64bit deb

    The site does not .deb installation. Whether someone has a link to the .deb installation?

    My pleasure. Good luck with it. There are lots of debs so to install easily extract the tar file by right clicking, choose extract here.

    Cd into the folder (assuming it's on your desktop), open a terminal and then

    cd Desktop
    cd OOffice......(name of foldere here)
    sudo dpkg --install --recursive ./DEBS (enter your password)
    cd DEBS
    cd desktop-integration
    sudo dpkg --install *.deb


    NB, I found it better to remove openoffice 2.4 first - I did a search in synaptic and removed everything to do with openoffice
