[Solved] Install A OO 4.1.3 in Xubuntu 14.04

Without specific instructions :alarm: , it appears that one simply unpacks the compressed file and uses the package manager of choice to install a .deb file.

Couple problems: which .deb and why doesn't it work?

Unpacking the .gz creates /en-US and under that is readmes and debs. Readme was pretty worthless, and there are too many debs. The ones of interest appear to be (and I'm just guessing here):
openoffice_4.1.2-3_amd64.deb
openoffice_4.1.3-1_amd64.deb
openoffice-en-us_4.1.2-3_amd64.deb
openoffice-en-us_4.1.3-1_amd64.deb

The first two return:
Dependency is not satisfiable: openoffice-ure
And the second two return:
Dependency is not satisfiable: openoffice-core01

Musings:
The previous simple setup routine used to work pretty well, but a package should work even better. If I didn't need to temporarily uninstall to get something else running, everything would have been fine. I wonder if I had installed some other way before. By the way, too bad it doesn't open .abw files. Damnation! What a lot of hassle. :crazy:

You, Sir, are an absolute lifesaver. Those steps sure did the trick. I love simple steps. Even better, every setting is back where it was before the removal.

Thank you very much. :bravo: :super:

PS: Could you please post a sticky for installation with those steps? It would help a lot of people.

Isn't that the basic method of installing anything via dpkg on (x)ubuntu?

Who would know? The basic (and recommended) method is to use Ubuntu Software Center, and dpkg doesn't come into the picture.
