Will that purge all ppa's so I can't update opera or other things??

Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec)

No .. it will only purge the libreoffice PPA that DOESSN'T contain a version for 10.04

If I highlight it, will it only remove that one or ALL the depositories that are checked? Figure checked means installed so afraid to uncheck them

Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec)

checked means ACTIVE

Yes it will only remove the one that's highlighted

Maybe you can give me all the instructions, and expected output, and I'll yell if I have any problems.

mako6

Did they change anything from 1 month ago? Yes they changed the depository I first used and apparently second isn't complete. Unless you know another.

Lets try Open Office.

Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec)

OK, what happens if you run:
sudo apt-get install openoffice.org-writer
?
