    Looks like it doesn’t work. There are no files for Karmic there, only older versions. Any other way to do this via ppa?

    do I need to uninstall my current openoffice before installing this version (either via ppa or deb files) or will that be automatically done?

  • zinovsky

    Yes using both will upgrade the existing Ooo package.

  • Daniel

    So I don’t need to do an uninstall first?

  • Zinovsky

    Normaly not, but if you want to uninstall first you can do that before to install Openoffice.org 3.2 :), me latest time i tested Openoffice 3.2 RC3 when i installed the RC version did automaticaly upgrade my Openoffice.org 3.1.1 and worked perfectly

    it appears that amd64 packages are not available from PPA as when i did apt-get update here is the respond from server:

    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu/dists/karmic/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    You’ve got “sudp” instead of “sudo” in there.

    I am sure there is potential for some kind of joke about being “PWNED” in there, but still, you might want to sort it.

    I have the same problem. I hope it will be fixed soon.
