After our famous "How to Install OpenOffice.org 3.0 on Ubuntu 8.10" guide and because the final versions of Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) and OpenOffice.org 3.1.0 are out for some time now, we decided to create a new tutorial, about how to install the fresh and improved OpenOffice.org 3.1.0 on Ubuntu 9.04. However, this tutorial will also work for Ubuntu 8.10 and Ubuntu 8.04, but we haven't tested it!
WARNING: Before you start, please make sure that your system is up-to-date!
Any requirements? Well, all you need to get started is Ubuntu 9.04, both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. Follow the steps below!
STEP 1 - Add the OpenOffice.org 3.1 repositories
Go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources...
For Ubuntu 8.04
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
For Ubuntu 8.10
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
For Ubuntu 9.04
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty mainHERE and choose the "Save Link As..." option to save the key file on your desktop.
· Go to the fourth tab, "Authentication," click the "Import Key File" button, navigate to the location where you've just saved the key file (usually, it is File System/home/YOURUSERNAME/Desktop) and double click it. You will immediately see a new entry called "247D1CFF 2009-01-21 Launchpad PPA for OpenOffice.org Scribblers."STEP 2 - Remove the old OpenOffice 3.0
Go to System -> Administration -> Update Manager...
sudo apt-get remove language-support-en language-support-translations-en openoffice.org-help-en-gb openoffice.org-l10n-en-gb openoffice.org-l10n-en-za thunderbird-locale-en-gb
Type Y when asked if you want to remove those packages. When it's done, close the terminal window.STEP 3 - Install OpenOffice.org 3.1
At this moment, you don't have any OpenOffice.org suite installed in your system. Therefore, go to Applications -> Add/Remove...Credits: Special thanks go to Chris Cheney and the "OpenOffice.org Scribblers" team for creating the PPA for Ubuntu.
