    6. Hi,

      I am new in Linux platform. i have Centos 6.5. I have download Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.1_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz from website.

      I have follows your steps from step 2 to install openoffice.

      after using this command tar -xvf Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.1_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz

      i have closed the terminal due to some reason.

      but then a folder en-US has been created in home dir.

      i have tried to delete folder en-US so that i can start all commands from first. but it could not be delete.

      i run again this command Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.1_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz

      then it give some error and show: folder en-US has been already created.

      then i run all remaining commands up to step6.

      now when i am run this command: openoffice4

      it show:
      $ openoffice4
      /usr/bin/openoffice4: line 22: /opt/openoffice4/program/soffice: No such file or directory

      I have checked in Add/Remove Software. it shows:
      Open Office desktop integration (openoffice4.0-redhat-menus-4.0-9714 (noarch) (installed size- 1.1 MB)

      please help to install openoffice.

      • Hi kumar,

        Could you post output of following command:

        rpm -qa openoffice\*

        You can remove that en-US directory (or any directory) with following command (using root user):

        rm -rf /path/to/directory/en-US
    7. Hi JR,

      Thanks for reply.
      when i run the following command:
      rpm -qa openoffice\*
      it show:

    8. Hi JR,

      After removing the en_US directory, now i have installed OpenOffice successfully.

      Thank you :)

      • Hi kumar,

        Excellent to hear that you got it working, looks like you had only openoffice4.0-redhat-menus-4.0-9714.noarch installed and that’s why you got this error.

    9. can it be done with intel atom processor as in readme file requirement section it is mentioned for pentium iii or above.
      how may i do for 32 bit atom processor with gnome3.4.2 version . please help

    10. everything went great until step 5. I have ZERO clue what the hell your saying the user is suppose to do here. so far I have just cut and pasted each step into the terminal and it has worked but this is not working on step 5. Why does Linux program designers do this……. everything is so ridiculously hard to install. I needed this NOW cause every version of Libre Office I use has a serious bug when doing a copy and I’ve lost major productivity due to this and gave up. Was switching to OO which I have had much success with in a windows version in the past but this install process of everything in Linux is Crazy stupid

    11. btw step 5 takes me to something you dont show here and locks me into it with no way to escape with out closing the terminal. Some kind of something with a menu on the bottom accessed via ^various letter (Cntrl + a letter representing an menu item)

      • Hi George,

        Press CTRL+O, Enter, CTRL+X

        Write Out, Enter to accept, Exit.

        Yes, Linux is totally different operating system, than Windows. Linux is designed to work on servers, without any graphical desktops, so that’s why software install methods are totally different than Windows software installations.

        And yes, Linux have several nice GUIs to install packages very easy. Almost all apps found directly from repositories and you can install/remove those apps using command line or some GUI.

    12. Please explain further

      Where am I suppose to do the above. When I come to this menu?

      Also “Write Out”. What am I writing and where am I putting this? I assume you mean type it out and not “write”

      Thank you

      • Step 5. explained

        Open /etc/yum.conf text file using nano text editor (as root user):

        nano -w /etc/yum.conf

        Add exclude row under [main] section:

       * libreoffice-ure*

        Then save file pressing following commands:


        Nano text editor is just example, you can use vi/vim, emacs, joe, pico, etc. text editors too. /etc/yum.conf is a plain text file and you have to add that exclude row to it as root user.

    13. ok did step 5 I think as you described.

      Did step 6 and it says all the stuff is already installed

      Step 7 done and it says command not found- also still nothing is listed for OO in my programs list (Activities)

    14. Have tried others install methods and they do not work either. Please someone help. I need OO. Need to rearrange student records (done in calc) into summer classes and cant do copy’s from file to file in Lebre office due to a recurring bug that has been passed on thru several versions of Lebre.

      This was all orginally written in OO Calc on a Win 7 computer. (which has since been stolen)

    15. If it helps any I do get below conflicts

      [[email protected] desktop-integration]# sudo rpm -i *.rpm
      error: Failed dependencies:

      • Hi george,

        I just test this guide step by step on clean installed Fedora 20 and it’s working as expected. Could you post first output of following commands:

        rpm -qa openoffice\* |sort -V
        ls -la /usr/bin/openoffice4
        ls -lad /opt/openoffice4
        ls -la /opt/openoffice4/program/{soffice,soffice.bin,swrite,scalc,smath,simpress,sbase,sdraw}
