Help! Need OpenOffice but won't install on Bianca KDE Editio

Postby sandro on Thu Apr 26, 2007 5:59 am

Hi! I have swithched from Bianca Gnome to Bianca KDE and I find that I like it better so I would like to keep it.

However Koffice does not open or render correctly most of the word, presentation and spreadsheet files I have to work with. Besides I don't like the interface.

I tried to use the Adept Add/Remove programs utility to install OpenOffice. It says it's done it and when you open it again it still shows the name of the programs as already ticked.
But I cannot find any openoffice applications with the tasty start menu, nor "Search", nor "Run program..."

When I go to the main Adept Manager, the following packages are shown as installed:
base, calc, core01 to core08, draw, impress, math and writer

I tried installing other combinations of openoffice packages, but to no avail! I would not apply the changes 'cause it would show in red that it would "BREAK" my install.

I finally tried installing Did Nothing!

Kubuntu is just ugly :!:, but it does at least have OpenOffice. Bianca KDE Edition is much better looking than Kubuntu alright, but... WHY can't I have OpenOffice with it???:x I need it. Do I have to migrate again?

Please help!
