I want to share this knowledge with you guys, I learned this a month ago from an Ubuntu Forum.Basically this installation process doesn’t involve wizard installation, you need to use Terminal (command line for lynux).

Follow the ff steps:

1. go to the OpenOffice website and download the Linux .deb file.

2.Once you have done that, extract the .deb file, OOo_3.1.1_LinuxIntel_install_en-US_deb.tar.gz then you’ll see a file called OOO310_m19_native_packed-1_en-US.9420

3. remove the existing version of OpenOffice if you wish with this command: sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

4. Copy and paste OOO310_m19_native_packed-1_en-US.9420 onto the desktop then open Terminal and paste this command: sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO310_m19_native_packed-1_en-US.9420/DEBS/*.deb

5. Then paste this command: sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO310_m19_native_packed-1_en-US.9420/DEBS/desktop-integration/openoffice.org3.1-debian-menus_3.1-9420_all.deb
