How to install OpenOffice 3.2 in Ubuntu

1. The first thing you need to do (very important) is completely remove any OpenOffice packages you may have installed on your Ubuntu computer:
<code>sudo apt-get remove openoffice*</code>

2. Then, to download and install OpenOffice 3.2 in Ubuntu, simply copy & paste the commands below in a terminal (what the commands do is download the .tar.gz archive which includes Ubuntu .deb files, extract the files and then install them all recursively):

Ubuntu 32bit:
<code>wget<br />tar -xvf OOo_3.2.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz<br />cd OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483/<br />sudo dpkg -iR DEBS/</code>

Ubuntu 64bit:
<code>wget<br />tar -xvf OOo_3.2.0_LinuxX86-64_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz<br />cd OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483/<br />sudo dpkg -iR DEBS/</code>

If you want to manually download OpenOffice 3.2 .debs, get the archive from HERE (chose either "Linux 32-bit DEB" or "Linux 64-bit DEB" depending on your Ubuntu installed architecture).

Please note that the commands above are customized for the US language If you download OpenOffice 3.2 for a different language, adjust the language in the file names in the commands!
