Installing Openoffice 3.2 without waiting for PPA

I installed 3.2 on my Windows 7 machine and I like it. Selection is now much better and a nice blue box shows what is selected. I looked for the updated repositories but they are not there for Karmic yet so here is what you could do to install OO 3.2.


Firstly, remove the old version.

sudo apt-get remove openoffice*

Now download and install the new version.


wget http://download.services.openoffice.org/files/stable/3.2.0/OOo_3.2.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz
tar -xvf OOo_3.2.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz
cd OOO320_m12_native_packed-1_en-US.9483/
sudo dpkg -iR DEBS/
