How to: Install OpenOffice 3.0 on Ubuntu 8.10

I think everyone has the answer about why OpenOffice 3.0 is not include in Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex). This is because the delay of OpenOffice 3.0 release and the developer didn't have time to test it, but don't worry they will include the OpenOffice 3.0 for the next Ubuntu.

Below is the how to install OpenOffice 3.0 on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex).

1. Go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources
Go to the second tab, "Third-Party Software," click on the "Add" button, and paste the line below.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main

3. Then, click the “Close” button, then the “Reload” one and wait for the application to close!

4. When the Software Sources window will close itself, the update icon will appear in the system tray

5. Click on it and update your system!. Your open source office suite will be up-to-date from now on. Take a look below for some shots of OpenOffice.org 3.0 in Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex).

I am an avid follower of your blog and would like your help in promoting my similar blog.

http://ubuntuextreme.blogspot.com/ started when I realised I was posting a lot on ubuntuforums.org and writing numerous howto's. I realised that it would be useful for me to consolidate all of my posts into one useful blog.

Please have a look, and help me get on my feet with it! If you would like help me to provide assistance with posts, I would be glad to help. While I am not the most blog-savvy, I have a fair knowledge of Ubuntu.

Happy New Year!

I tried this a few weeks ago and it worked. I reinstalled Ubuntu yesterday and tried loading OpenOffice 3.0 again. Now I get a W: GPG error for that URL saying 'The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 60D1121724D1CFF'
