OT Open Office.
I've just downloaded OO and unpacked the files (I need something to make notes for my EMC2 install).
I have put this here as I'm not sure if this is a 10.04 issue or not.
How do I open a terminal window in the unpack directory ?
Or how do I navigate to \home\download\oo from the terminal window?
CD \home\download\oo does not work ?
Notice that 'cd' is lowercase, that matters in linux. And you must use forward slashes, not backslashes. OO is kind of overkill for a few notes isn't it? gedit is what I use, and there may be abiword on there but I don't remember.
On the other hand I just right click in a directory and create a new text file and qedit is fine for a few notes.
Why if use the file system, is download directory empty? If I use Places - Download - it shows me the files ?
If I go to where I unziped the files, I found an install program (Package installer) and installed OO.
I now cannot however find out how to run it! Nowhere to be found.
I forgot to mention that you must have a space between 'cd' and the directory. i.e.
There must be a space between any command and it's arguments (directory in this case).
If you actually installed OO, it will be in your Applications->Office menu. If it's not there, it probably didn't install (or maybe not all of it).
In Synaptic, you may have to open Settings->Repositories and make sure there is a check by the "Community-maintained..." item. Hit the "Reload" button, after you close that dialog and after the packages are updated you should be able to find OO with a search.
Community-maintained..." was ticked.
After a search, a whole lot of Open Office items come up under package. Installed version is blank for all??
If I re-run the install progrem I get
Error:Conflicts with the installed package openoffice,org-core
Is this the correct version ?
PS thanks for the help.
