Hello Dear Friends,

 I installed Libre Office to try out.  Already have/had Open Office 3.2.1

uninstalled Open Office in favour of itself....

I think this is a operating system or distro related problem. About an hour
ago I installed LibreOffice 3.3.0 on my GNU/Linux system (Ubuntu 9.10,
Karmic) and the 3.1.1 installation stays untouched.

Other guides like installing on Ubuntu through Alien are being written now.

As I mentioned, I installed Libreoffice on Ubuntu Karmic. First I had
problems to install it via Alian way. Then, again, I was not succesful to
compile it from the source and I asked the friends on Freenode
#documentfoundation . They helped me to find the addresss of the deb package
(its a little bit "hidden") and then things went on almost trouble-free. (A
very short guide might be useful to be on the safe side.) I don't get the
point in distributing RPMs and advicing the Alien way. Why don't we put the
.deb link to the main download page? Is there something that I miss?
