Install Apache OpenOffice In Ubuntu And Linux Mint

Before you go on installing OpenOffice, I would advise uninstalling the already installed LibreOffice. To remove LibreOffice, use the following commands:

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove



Once you have removed LibreOffice, let’s see how to install OpenOffice now. There are two versions available, 32 bit or 64 bit.


Install 32 bit OpenOffice in Ubuntu and Linux Mint

cd ~/Downloads
 
wget sourceforge.net/projects/openofficeorg.mirror/files/4.1.1/binaries/en-GB/Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-GB.tar.gz
 
Once we have the files, time to install them.
 
tar -xzvf Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-GB.tar.gz
cd en-GB/DEBS
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
 

Install 64 bit OpenOffice in Ubuntu and Linux Mint

cd ~/Downloads
 
wget sourceforge.net/projects/openofficeorg.mirror/files/4.1.1/binaries/en-GB/Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.1_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-GB.tar.gz
 
Extract and install the downloaded files.
 
tar -xzvf Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.1_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-GB.tar.gz
cd en-GB/DEBS
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
 
 
You see, would it not have been better if OpenOffice was simply included in the repository sources? Remember that we have installed en-GB i.e. British version of OpenOffice. If you want the US version, replace GB with US in the above commands and it should be fine.


Uninstall OpenOffice

Simply use the commands below to remove OpenOffice from Ubuntu and Linux Mint:
sudo apt-get purge openoffice*.* && sudo apt-get autoremove

Re-install LibreOffice

To install LibreOffice again, use the command below:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice
