i’ve been using the older version of openoffice and i wanted to upgrade to 3.0 in ubuntu. well it is not as easy as … i download the files and then click upgrade. there are repositories that i need to download in order to install them properly. you will be using ppa (personal package archive) in order to have such of installation.
so what i did in order to have this upgrade automatically is the following steps:
- first you will need to open “
synaptic package manager“
- go to “third-party software” tab and then click on “add”
- add this following line
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepidmain
- now reload the package information the synaptic package manager and then upgrade
