I used Nikola's Deb archive (adding it to my sources.list).

Scott, what's the line for that?
1. Adding the repository:
sudo echo “deb /#geri...@hummer” | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

2. Adding the signing key:
wget deb -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

In TDF archive is the message thread of observations about the deb repository and setting it up.
See the thread:
"[TDF discuss] LO deb repo" for more details.
I found that I had to uninstall beta1 to get things to work.
Once I squared away beta1/beta2 issues things went swimmingly.

Install from the cmd line for apt I had to use "libreoffice3* libobasis3* libreoffice-menus*" when I first installed but after that updates were picked up normally.

Can you elaborate a bit pls?


I used the line:

prompt> sudo apt-get install libreoffice3* lobasis3.3* libreoffice-debian-menus

to install LibO from the Nikola's LibO deb repository. When it came time to install beta2, I uninstalled beta1 then used the line above to install beta2. Although apt did pick up the fact that the packages were updated and installed them, I discovered after the fact that beta1 had to be uninstalled first.

Thanks for the details Scott

I followed this, removed the previously installed beta 2 version of LibO and attempted an installation as per your apt-get line. The result:

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

So no go. Perhaps this is just me, but I really don't think that one should have this degree of difficulty installing an application, especially when - generally speaking - apt-get is one of the more robust package managers available.

So, back to removing any partial installs and re-installing by hand.

Thanks anyway.
