Seems like alot of work, messing with the deb packages. Someone had to make the deb from OpenOffice.org.
I am running 0.5 and did hd install. I just went to OO web site and downloaded the tarball. As root, I untarred it into tmp, then CD in OO dir there and ran
Installed into /opt directory.
exit from sudo
as user damnsmall, I ran
did the workstation install into my /home/damnsmall directory
next, I sudo su to edit the fluxbox-menu and added a OpenOffice submenu with
entries for writer, calc, draw, and impress.
I wouldn't expect a deb package to know how I would want to install it.
But, anyway the standard install works just fine.
