I'm not very good with linux yet, however I like OpenOffice and don't want libre office. I have tried countless times to install it but I can't, mostly due to lack of knowledge I believe. Here is what I do:
I go to OpenOffice.org
Download the 64 bit Debian file
extract and open folder
See a bunch of different files and accomplish nothing.
What is the step I am missing? I have been able to install other programs by going to the terminal, typing in sudo su to become root then dragging and dropping the file I am trying to install into the terminal window.
Please help, I am running Ubuntu 11.04 Desktop
Let me know if you need more information.
