    Hi.

    I hope somebody can help me.

    I downloaded "OOOP_2.2.0_070417_unxlngi6_install.tar.gz". After I extracted a few "debs" came out. I didnt see any "README" or something to install de package or to read some advices.

    I have Debian Etch with OpenOffice 2.0.4. I am interested in use Oxygen but I dont know if I have to uninstall the openoffice that comes with Debian Etch.

    Do I have to uninstall Open Office installed by default ?
    That is the sequence to install all "debs" ?...or just have to "dpkg -i *.deb" ?
    Besides templates and graphics: why I should use Oxygen instead Open Office 2.0.4 ?

    Thanks a lot.

      Well ... after a big fight downloading the package I can answer by myself some questions:

      1. "Do I have to uninstall Open Office installed by default ?"
      Yes, I uninstalled all packages related with previos version of OpenOffice that comes with Etch.
      How?
      I did: "aptitude purge openoffice.org"
      Checked if there was another packages doing: "aptitude search openoffice
      Uninstalled any package related with openoffice.org.

      2) "That is the sequence to install all "debs" ?...or just have to "dpkg -i *.deb" ? "
      Yes. I did: "dpkg -i *.deb"
      Then changed to "desktop-integration" folder and did the same thing.

      3) Besides templates and graphics: why I should use Oxygen instead Open Office 2.0.4 ?
      I have no idea yet. I will get into oxygen deeply to see what can I find.

      Thanks.

        Sorry for not replying, i would personnally have suggested you leave openoffice on and simply install the extensions for openoffice, save yourself the hassle. But you have done it so its all good, again i apologise for not getting back sooner.

        Regards,

    • Simply running:

      # ./update

      should work (and does work in OpenOffice), but it does not work in OxygenOffice.  Doing so made my OpenOffice/OxygenOffice installation completely non-functional.  I too will do a complete uninstall:

      # apt-get remove openoffice*

      for those who don't run aptitude.

      > i would personnally [sic] have suggested you leave openoffice on and simply install the extensions for openoffice

      Where are the instructions for this...and does that enable the M$Office 2007 compatibility?

      Thanks,  It looks interesting.

    • I uninstalled OpenOffice & installed OxygenOffice; it still did not work at all. 

      $ ./openoffice.org2.4

      returns:

      I believe Debian Etch includes 2.2, not 2.4, so it seems that OxygenOffice is not compatible with the currently stable version of Debian.  Genuine OpenOffice does not share this problem.
