    I have the 64 AMD version of Ubuntu 8.04 and have been trying to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 alongside the 2.4.0 one already installed. I have followed the instructions posted by Falko Timme and can only get as far as:

    ... and go to the directory that contains all the .deb packages...

    cd OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS/

    the one I get does not have the /DEBS/ at the end. I can only assume therefore that these instructions are not for the Linux 64 Deb platform.

    Can anyone help with installation instructions for this platform?

    are there any features that you can't absolutely live without that are present in OOo 3?

    How to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

    Hi Falko,
    I did as you suggested and got as far as getting an icon on my Desktop with the words 000300_m9_native_packed_1_en-US.9358 but when I then tried to install with the command
    in Terminal as per your instructions I get the message Command not found. You will note that the words above do not have cd in front or /DEBS/ at the end. However I do have an OpenOffice 3.0.0 Writer icon on my desktop for the first time and in Office in Applications.
    When I tried to open it I get an error message which states:
    Details: Failed to execute child process "/home/ernest/Desktop/OOo_3.0.0_LinuxX86-64_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz" (Permission denied)

    Any further help would be appreciated.

    Ernest.

    Uncompress the file like this:
    Code:
    tar xvfz /home/ernest/Desktop/OOo_3.0.0_LinuxX86-64_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz
    Then install it as shown in the tutorial.

    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!!!

    Ernest.

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    which sudo
    and
    Code:
    which dpkg
    ?

    How to Install OpenOffice Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

    Hi Falko,

    Thanks for your latest post. Right from the start I have tried to follow your original posts on the installation of OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04. All my computer experience is with Windows and Ubuntu is something very different for me. In your previous email you suggested how I should uncompress the file by using:tar xvfz /home/ernest/Desktop/OOo_3.0.0_LinuxX86-64_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz This I did by typing this into Terminal and a whole list of directories appeared one of which was: OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS/ After uncompressing the file you stated: Then install it as shown in the tutorial. In the tutorial it states: and go to the directory that contains all the .deb packages: cd OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358/DEBS/ which I did except the one I had did not have cd at the front. I typed this into Terminal and as instructed in the tutorial I tried to install them by typing in the command sudo dpkg -i *.deb and got the message: command not found. I suspect that I have not done this last stage correctly and that is entirely due to my inexperience with Ubuntu as I am on an entirely new learning curve. I note that at the bottom of page 7 of your tutorial you have a section on Creating a Launcher if one wishes to run Ubuntu's OpenOffice package and OpenOffice 3.0.0 in parallel. This is what I want to do so does this have any bearing on the problem?

    Many thanks,

    Ernest.

    I still stand by my original question... you say you are new to Linux/Ubuntu yet you want to just go ahead and operate like on windows - which is go to a website, download software, install it...

    IMHO you should first get a bit confortable on how to use linux and especially also package management within ubuntu - this even more if there are not any features really needed from a version not in the according package manager.

    cd is short for "change directory" - it's a command, not part of a directory name.
    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /home/ernest/Desktop
    ?

    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.

    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.

    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 text:Debs 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.

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