How to start OO after install?

Postby ruud00000 » Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:38 am

I installed OO3.4 after deinstalling LibreOffice with Ubuntu software center.

No errors until depackaging the .deb in directory desktop-intergration.
Error-message:
ruud@TABLET-UBUNTU:~/Downloads/nl/DEBS/desktop-integration$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Selecting previously unselected package openoffice.org-debian-menus.

Fouten gevonden tijdens behandelen van:

After that I deinstalled with command sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.* which found some more to be removed.

Then trying above again I got following, which looked fine to me:
ruud@TABLET-UBUNTU:~/Downloads/nl/DEBS/desktop-integration$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

However I stil don find OO among the installed programs in Ubuntu software center. Should I find it there now or should I look somewhere else to start the program now?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

You should find it in the applications list. I use Gnome 3.6 and I just have to type "open" to have the list of the AOO components (once you've hit the hot corner). Don't remember how it works exactly with Unity.

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 19.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 10 (with winPenPack port).

The OpenOffice components should show up in the Office folder (where LibreOffice components formerly lived). I use Classic Gnome.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
