Default How to install OpenOffice Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

Hi Falko,

Yes its me again, I uncompressed the file as suggested by typing in:tar xvfz /home/ernest/Desktop/OOo_3.0.0_LinuxX86-64_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz and got a page full of directories including: OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS/ I then typed in
sudo dpkg -i *.deb and got a message - command not found. Very frustrating as I am sure I must be very close to success. I have to admit I am an absolute newcomer to Ubuntu so perhaps it is may fault in that I am not doing something right. In your instructions you
state then go to the directory mentioned above and install them with one single command which I did, I think that I am not doing that last stage correctly. Help!!!
