If this is symlinked to Libre Office, remove the symlink. This will NOT remove Libre Office, this will only disallow Libre Office to redirect the normal Open Office binary -- typically /usr/bin/soffice -- to Libre Office instead. Unpack the downloaded image to prepare for installation.
For example, if you want to install Open 3.0 on Ubuntu, or any other Debian-based distro such as Sidux, download the OOo_3.0.0_Linux Intel_install_en-US_gz package.This will enable you to do a GUI install rather than command line. Historically, Open Office has provided desktop integration packages for madriva, redhat, suse, and now freedesktop.Many new desktop window managers like KDE4, Gnome3, and Unity now adhere to the standard for icon placement and mime-type definitions.Recently, there were some issues with it so under advisement I reset the Eee PC to its factory settings and reinstalled everything.Since then, I have been having problems with my documents through openoffice and was wondering if this was an openoffice problem or something else entirely. I get a little pop up box if I open openoffice and go file/open that asks me to put it in Unicode.Want to install the latest and greatest version of Open on your Linux machine?
