Install OpenOffice 3.0 on Ubuntu
OpenOffice 3.0 is not in the repository for Ubuntu yet…why…I do not know. Anyway you can install it very easily by following a couple steps.
Download the file from OpenOffice.org
Now you need to right click it and extract or run this command:
tar xzf OOo_3.0.0_LinuxIntel_install_english-US_deb.tar.gz
That will create a number of folders. Now move into those folders:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Create a link on your Panel.
Right click the panel and choose “Add to Panel” and “Custom Application Launcher”.
Add this line to your command line and select an icon for the application in the panel.
Now click you icon on the panel and it will start.
