Eh .. openoffice-writer should be in the default 10.04 repo

IS it in Synaptic ? .. if so install it .. not the whole openoffice, just writer

This is what happened before we did all this cleaning:  Are we in a new world now?

---- Removed libre-writer. Tried installing openoffice.org-writer, got this:
Oh, gotta add that PPA- that gets purged too?

OK, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install openoffice.org-core openoffice.org-base-core openoffice.org-emailmerge openoffice.org-math openoffice.org-writer
Any errors ?

[edit]

Theres' a PPA with LibreOffice 3.5.7 for 10.04 if you'd prefer to try that ?

If it could install the OOo core, etc.. it would have, n'est pas? So it needs another repository for OOo. I think.

Sure whats the ppa for 3.6 Libre, though I looked at it and seemed to have a bunch of bugs, probably less than what I had since it MADE to work with 10.4

OK, fire up synaptic, and remove the repositories for libreoffice-4

then send the output from:
Code: [Select]
for APT in `find /etc/apt/ -name *.list`; do grep -o "^deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/[a-z0-9\-]\+/[a-z0-9\-]\+" $APT | while read ENTRY ; do USER=`echo $ENTRY | cut -d/ -f4` PPA=`echo $ENTRY | cut -d/ -f5` ; echo ppa:$USER/$PPA ; done ; done

DOne- haven't run it yet.

Seems OK. Thanks very much. Is the program updatable from inside it?

 Is there a way to save the packages, so one doesn't have to download them again from places that don't have them? Like I could have done with the original or the OOo

Not as far as I know no

Erm, yes, but you'd have to make sure you downloaded all the dependencies too (if any), and installing them may not be too easy

Theoretically you could clone the PPA, but my advice would be to switch to at least 12.04 or if you don't like Unity, Mint or Peppermint as soon as possible .. up to date software is going to get harder and harder to find for 10.04, and you're no longer receiving security updates.

OK. Where are they- are they downloaded to one place? Figure if you just dump them back in that place, it will see them on subsequennt installation, not download them over, and also get any dependencies needed. Cause I want the space.
