Alright I have had like 10 requests and read a few threads all asking about openoffice in bt3. Why I'm not sure because I would never do my homework in backtrack but here it is anyway. Funny story though I did get caught missing a short paper a few weeks ago and all the computers at the school library were full and I had like 40 mins to get a 500 word esay done. I look in my bag and all I got is the eeepc. Well I fired it up and cranked it out real quick. Thats how this tut came about because I needed something with spell check and I had to get online and figure out how to install open office real quick. Also the paper had to be emailed in windows format so I had to move quick. Anyway its easy so here it is.
The version of openoffice that worked for me is located here
Just choose http or ftp over to the right and pick a location near you.
Once you get it simply use installpkg like this
This will not add menu links youll have to do that on your own. The start up command is...Code:bt ~ # installpkg openoffice.org-2.3.1-i586-1kjz.tgz
It will complain with that error which I don't understand yet but the program works fine.Code:bt ~ # openoffice.org2.3 I18N: Operating system doesn't support locale "en_US"
Well wasn't much of a tutorial but there it is Cheers, Pureh@te
Thanks but that did not fix it however I just created a menu entry in the kde menu and I left run in terminal unchecked and the error is never seen. Out of sight out of mind
I've been intending to install open for a while now.
Thanks for the guide

Wow. Obviously English is not your first language so you are going to need to document and post your exact steps and I will try to help.
I am having the same problem as the guy with the great English. I type installpkg openoffice.org-2.3.1-i586-1kjz.tgz into the console and I get the response, Cannot install openoffice.org-2.3.1-i586-1kjz.tgz: package does not end in .tgz. I have made sure that I am typing the file name correctly. I have also tried installing with pkgtool. I have also tried downloading the file from a different server, and get the same results. Thanks for any help.
For those of you who can't install OpenOffice due to the "doesn't end with tgz" "error" even though it is a .tgz, here is a solution:
move the file you downloaded to your root!
That did it for me
Oh, and btw, i am a complete n00b just got my backtrack 3 to work and it's great, great "guide" to OpenOffice to work. Thanks Pureh@te, your the man.
Thats not working for me either. Any other ideas? Thanks.
