Install OpenOffice.org 3.1.1 in Ubuntu


To install the latest release using command-line, just use the instructions below:

First, edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file and enter your user password:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list


Add the following two lines (the second one is not necessary, unless you want the sources to be available too):

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main


Add the trusted key for these repositories:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 247D1CFF

Update the packages lists:

sudo apt-get update

You can eventually remove your existing OpenOffice installation by using the following two commands:

sudo apt-get remove --purge openoffice.org

sudo apt-get autoremove --purge

This will also remove system-wide configuration files.

Now, install OpenOffice.org 3.1.1:

sudo apt-get install openoffice.org

This should be all. You can run it by pressing Alt+F2 and typing openoffice in the run box.

  1. If your looking for a great free word processing program then you've found the right program for that. You can customize every toolbar and even the menu options to only display what YOU want to use.
