[Solved] Error trying to install in Debian 10 32bits

Postby gustavopinent » Thu May 28, 2020 9:50 pm

Hi! My Debian 10 i386 32bits came with LibreOffice installed. But I prefer OpenOffice, as you can see... However, the installation is finishing with one error and than I can locate OpenOffice to execute it. Maybe because of LibreOffice, I don't know, Linux is not my main OS, don't know how it works.

I have XFCE 4.12. The OpenOffice is 4.1.7 Linux x86 deb ptBR in deb.

I tried to install the file that causes the error:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@MacMiniDebian:~/Downloads/pt-BR/DEBS/desktop-integration# sudo dpkg -i openoffice4.1-debian-menus_4.1.7-9800_all.deb

Didn't work. Now what?

I use OO 64 bit; normally, before I install it, I use the following to remove Libreoffice

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt purge libreoffice*


Do not omit the trailing *.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

You don't need the desktop-integration package if you want to install AOO as a second option.
In order to install AOO as first option and keep LO as second option, use dpkg with --force-overwrite. This will replace the symlink /usr/bin/soffice pointing to the libreoffice executable with a symlink pointing to the openoffice executable.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.
Ubuntu 18.04, no OpenOffice, LibreOffice 6.4

As I won't use LibreOffice, I decided to remove it completely. After that, I did repeat the installation process and... yeah! Now I have AOO.


Thank you guys!
