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).

How to: Setup Flyback for backing up your data

Intro: Most of people go to Apple's Time Machine for thier backup software. The software is a great feature in their OS, and Linux has almost all of the required technology already built in to recreate it. This is a simple GUI to make it easy to use. In Linux its call Flyback. Most of peoples also called "Time Machine for Linux".

Below is the way to install it on Ubuntu:

1. Install the dependencies first
# sudo apt-get install python python-glade2 python-gnome2 python-sqlite3 python-gconf rsync

2. Download the flyback software

# wget http://flyback.googlecode.com/files/flyback_0.4.0.tar.gz

3. Then change to the new directory ("flyback/src/" or "flyback/", depending on which you chose above) and run:

4. Run this command
# python flyback.py

5. Finish

To install, don't login as root. You need to run as sudoer. The system won't install and run as root.

Some screenshot for the flyback software:

New Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)

This is the way I like with Ubuntu. Its a productive distro and the main reason is its user friendly Linux ever (Just my opinion). Last day, I just send email to all my staff. Oh God, they are reply my email with the good comments, even they ask me the CD (hahahaha...become supplier for my office).

Below is the good thing about latest Ubuntu 8.04:

1. The desktop CD allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later.

2. You will need at least 384MB of RAM to install from this CD.

3. Coming on 2 type: Desktop and Server

4. Holy shits...its can install on windows. See picture below. This is the screen shot when you put your CD on your CD drive.

5. New desktop appearance. (Nice desktop graphic)

Hopefully the Ubuntu can be the best distro/Linux flavor on the future.
