Open Office Installation errors

Posted 22 April 2012 - 03:17 AM

I am trying to install Open Office 3.3 in my Ubuntu 11.10 system. I have removed all of the LibreOffice items. I am getting the errors:
Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf.index...
Can't open /usr/share/applications/openoffice.org3-base.desktop: No such file or directory at -e line 1, <> line 3142.

Can't open /usr/share/applications/openoffice.org3-writer.desktop: No such file or directory at -e line 1, <> line 3142.
Processing triggers for gnome-menus ...



The files stated do exist, but I get broken link when I try to open/view them. Any Ideas. I haven't been able to find another forum with people saying they get these errors.

Thanks

Are you installing this as a standard user, as root, or with sudo?

If you run 'dmesg' at the command prompt, does it provide any information related to this issue?

Did you ever have open office installed on this machine before?
Did you do an update to the system before downloading this version of open office?

Are you installing from apt-get or pkgmanager? Does pkgmanager show that open office is installed (even if it isn't)?

I installed ubuntu on this laptop a few days ago, and there were some 300+ updates to it. I am trying to load it through the terminal if that helps.

So open office was or was not updated? The above doesn't really answer that question.

Was open office ever installed?

Sorry didn't get that from the previous post. No libreOffice was initially installed. It came with the distro. I found in a forum that I needed to remove its components before installing Open Office. Doing so, I was able to get further into the install, but than these errors popped up. I am not using apt-get. I downloaded the package from the open Office site.
