Default How to Install OpenOffice Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

Hi Falko,

Thank you for your latest instructions and this is what I did in Terminal:
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$ cd/home/ernest/Desktop
tar xvfz OOo_3.0.0_LinuxX86-64_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz
bash: cd/home/ernest/Desktop: No such file or directory
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$ ls-la
bash: ls-la: command not found
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$
I have a horrible feeling that I am not doing what you wanted me to do-I am so new to Ubuntu that I am not sure if I am doing what I should be doing.
Sorry,I do appreciate your help but I feel that I am only wasting your time.
Many Thanks,
Ernest.

You've left out the spaces in the commands. It must be
Code:
cd /home/ernest/Desktop
not
Code:
cd/home/ernest/Desktop
and
Code:
ls -la
not
Code:
ls-la
You can copy & paste my commands to your terminal.

Hi Falko,

I have tried to follow your local instruction and this is as far as I got:
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$ cd /home/ernest/Desktop
ernest@ernest-desktop:~/Desktop$ ls -la
total 157424

ernest@ernest-desktop:~/Desktop$
and another icon has appeared on my desktop which reads:
/home/ernest/Desktop/OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358
I regret that I am causing you a lot of inconvenience due to my ignorance of the workings of Ubuntu when it comes to installing software. I have been in touch with our local community college to see if they can put me on to someone who could perhaps give me some tuition and I have also sent for a book on Ubuntu 8.04.
I am determined not to be beaten and to learn how to operate this very good and interesting operating system.
With grateful thanks for your help todate,

Ernest.

Default How to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

Hi Falko,

After sending you my earlier email I decided to do some more investigating of the new icon that appeared on my desktop with the text:/home/ernest/Desktop/OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358 On clicking on to this icon four other icons appeared one of which had the textebs which in turn led me another icon-titled: desktop- integration. and then:/home/ernest/Desktop/OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS/desktop-integration/openoffice.org3.0-debian-menus_3.0-9354_all.deb.Clicking on this opened the Package installer-openoffice.org-debian-menus with this message in red against Status: Conflicts with the installed package 'openoffice.org-core'

I trust that this might be of some help to you in solving the problem of trying to install the Version 3.0.0 alongside the installed one.

Ernest.

Please do this:
Code:
cd /home/ernest/Desktop/OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

cd desktop-integration/
sudo dpkg -i openoffice.org3.0-debian-menus_3.0-9354_all.deb

What's the output of
Code:
uname -a
? It seems you have downloaded the 64bit version, but are running an i386 system.

Hi Falko,

This is the output of the code:uname -a
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$ uname -a
Linux ernest-desktop 2.6.24-22-generic #1 SMP Mon Nov 24 18:32:42 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$

I hope that this helps,

Ernest.
