Install/Update Open Office 3.0 on Ubuntu 8.04

The update method did not wokr for me.
So First we will need to complete remove the current office instalation.

system>administration>synaptic package manager

Search For: open office-core.org

scroll down and find it and right click on it and select: REMOVE

Click ok or apply.

Now install the new Open Office Version 3.0

Select your language :
Created a directory in /home/user/OO3 and copy the .tar.gz file in there
Uncompress the file:
#tar -zxvf <file you downloaded>
With in that folder will be the .deb and desktop-integration sub-directories.
Setup the software:
# dpkg -i *.deb
Then go to /desktop-integration (to create the menus) and do the same:
# dpkg -i *.deb

Should also work for Ubuntu 8.10.

If this dosent work for you please leave a comment.
