How do I install OpenOffice.org?


If you have installed Linux tarball (tar.gz format) you should sudo or change into root user and move it to /opt/ folder.

  • Untar the package by typing:
 tar -xzvf OOo-2.3.1-LinuxIntel-20080124.tar.gz
  • cd into the folder created and execute the setup script:
 cd openoffice.org-2.4/
 bash setup.sh

This instructions are for RPM based linux distros. For aditional instructions please ask on the user list at users@openoffice.org.

If you have downloaded the binary file for Windows from OpenOffice.org, it may be in ZIP, TAR, or EXE format.

  • If the file is in the ZIP or TAR format, decompress it into a temporary folder (with a program such as WinZip or Pkzip).

If the file is in the EXE format, simply double-click the file to decompress it.

  • Double-click the Install icon that you find in the Install Folder; or, double-click the file named setup.exe. A guided installation dialog will begin and will step you through the installation process.
