    How to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

    Hi Falko,

    Success at last, but whilst I can open OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 by running: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice in Terminal this is the only way I can do it. In Applications I have four OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 icons and three in Office in Applications but none of them will launch OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0. The only way I can launch it is from Terminal. Surely I should have icons that will launch it without having to go to Terminal each time as suggested by you.How do I get to the Create Launcher stage in your suggestions on Page 2 of your 'How to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04' instructions and get the necessary operative icons as is the case with Version 2.4
    I really appreciate the help you have given this old man so far and your patience, please bear with me a little longer.

    Kind Regards,

    Ernest.

    How to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

    Hi Falko,

    Eureka! Success at last. I cannot begin to thank you enough for all the help you have given me so patiently since I first contacted you. I have learnt such a lot during this exercise and was determined not to give up hope.
    As you know I have the Hardy Heron Ubuntu version on my computer in addition to Windows XP. Intrepid Ibis is now out and could you let me know if it is a fairly strai:Dght forward process to upgrade from one to the other using a CD with it on?

    My humble thanks and very good wishes for a Very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Ernest.
