Re: [tdf-discuss] Installing Libre Office


Also thanks for the advice - but I should have said I run Windows XP64 (I know ... I also run Ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot)

I installed Libre Office to try out. Already have/had Open Office 3.2.1 and thought naively that I could run both together. NO! Libre promptly uninstalled Open Office in favour of itself.... (Oh bugger!- a New Zealand expression...) So I am now in the process of uninstalling Libre, re-installing Open Office and wondering what next..
Why can I not have both?  Oh well, back to Open Office fornow.....

Try http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Run_OOo_versions_parallel tells how to run several versions.

LibreOffice should not remove any OpenOffice rpm versions as it has a different name. Here is an installation guide for Freedesktop, Mandriva, RedHat and Suse that I posted earlier:


I agree that no beta should over write an installed version. As I stated yesterday, I feel that no software should install over another version unless told to be the operator. Anyone should be able to install any number of copies without having to jump through hoops to do so. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the info but I run Ubuntu 09.10.
