in a stable system: NEVER, because Felicia use the same versions as Intrepid!

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex will become a back-port of OpenOffice 3.1 when it's out, but will not be supported!

A solution is a launchpad repo, with that you can install OOo3 in Intrepid/Felicia, but here too, no official support.
Sorry for my BAD English!!

The Launchpad repo no longer has OO3. You can get it here.

http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2008/10/1 ... 4-and-810/

I have used this method and it works great. Using these packages gives OpenOffice the auto update feature and gets rid of that Ubuntu look. Ubuntu removed the packages form the Launchpad repo because of a bug that was found. I find it difficult to believe because of all of the bugs they left in Intrepid.

My guess is you won't see OO 3 until it gets into sid main. It is in experimental now. When Debian fixes it Ubuntu will probably pull it in.

Don't forget that Ubuntu doesn't stand alone. Actually they do very little actual development work on upstream programs, considering the size of Ubuntu. Debian does most of the heavy lifting.

Kind of a shame really. Ubuntu needs to do more upstream work.

A simpler method is just to add
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main
to your sources.list, and then update your openoffice packages.

Ubuntu removed the packages form the Launchpad repo because of a bug that was found.


I'm not sure about any of that, but the repo I listed definitely still has the packages. I used this to upgrade the openoffice packages on my felicia install about five minutes ago, and it worked just fine.

When you install it. :wink:
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.
