= Replacing OpenOffice.org 2.02 with Open Office.org 2.2 =
 
-
#To successfully upgrade, you must first completely uninstall OpenOffice.org 2.02, and all related configuration files must be purged from your system.
 
-
#Then you need to temporarily change your package download sources.
 
-
#Next, you can install Open Office.org 2.2 from the new source.
 
-
#Finally, you restore your old package sources again.
 
-
#Done!
 
-
 
-
 
-
== There are two methods available. ==
 
-
 
-
== A : Command Line method ==
 
-
=== 1: Remove OpenOffice.org 2.0.2 ===
 
-
 
-
The following commands work for <u>both 32bit and 64bit installations</u> of OO.org 2.0.2 in Mepis 6.5:
 
-
*Open a konsole and become root:
 
-
''' su''' ( enter root password when prompted )
 
-
 
-
''' apt-get update'''
 
-
*Set aside temporarily your [[Sources.list|sources.list]]:
 
-
mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.orig
 
-
*Remove and purge the existing Openoffice.org 2.0.2 packages and config-files
 
-
''' apt-get remove --purge openoffice.org-*'''
 
-
 
-
=== 2: Preparation of Sources ===
 
-
Now that the old packages have been removed, you need to create a new /etc/apt/sources.list with only the new MEPIS-contrib repository that has the OO.org 2.2.0 packages.
 
-
*Open a konsole, and become root
 
-
*Enter <u>ONE</u> of the following lines (without the bracketed text):
 
-
['''32bit'''] '''echo "deb http://apt.mepis.org/contrib32-6.5/ mepis main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list'''
 
-
['''64bit'''] '''echo "deb http://apt.mepis.org/contrib64-6.5/ mepis main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list'''
 
-
*Now use the new repository to optain a list of OpenOffice.org 2.2.0 packages:
 
-
'''apt-get update'''
 
-
 
-
=== 3: Installation of new OpenOffice.org 2.2 ===
 
-
* Open a konsole, become root, and refresh the package list
 
-
'''apt-get update'''
 
-
* Install the new packages ('''NOTE''': this is a single long command line, make sure the last word of what you paste in is "menus")
 
-
'''apt-get install openoffice.org-base openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-kde-integration openoffice.org-math openoffice.org-writer openoffice.org-debian-menus'''
 
-
 
-
=== 4 : Restoring your original /etc/apt/sources.list ===
 
-
* Still as root, enter:
 
-
'''mv /etc/apt/sources.list.orig /etc/apt/sources.list'''
 
-
* Now add the contrib repository to your original sources.list for Mepis 6.5 that you just copied back.  ('''NOTE''': this only adds the contrib repository, and does not affect the rest of the original sources.list).  Enter <u>ONE</u> of the following (without the bracketed text):
 
-
['''32bit'''] '''echo "deb http://apt.mepis.org/contrib32-6.5/ mepis main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list'''
 
-
['''64bit'''] '''echo "deb http://apt.mepis.org/contrib64-6.5/ mepis main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list'''
 
-
Then
 
-
'''apt-get update'''
 
-
to refresh your list.
 
-
* After having updated to OO.org 2.2.0 using the command line, you may select to install through Synaptic or Kpackage some additional OO.org 2.2.0 packages that are available: openoffice.org-emailmerge, openoffice.org-graphicfilter, openoffice.org-gnome-integration, openoffice.org-testtool and openoffice.org-xsltfilter. 
 
-
'''NOTE''': take good care <u>NOT</u> to install updates of older 2.0.2 packages (they may show up in the regular repositories) !
 
-
 
-
----
 
-
----
 
-
== B : Synaptic method ( for regular 32bit Mepis ) ==
 
-
=== 1.  Remove OpenOffice 2.0.2 ===
 
-
*Fire up [[Synaptic]], and make sure (Settings --> REpositories) that <u>only</u> standard repositories are enabled: ubuntu, mepis, and medibuntu (if used).
 
-
*On the main menu bar, select Reload to refresh the package list.
 
-
*Now click on Search and enter:
 
-
openoffice.org-
 
-
to show the list of OO.org packages.  We are going to uninstall and purge all the installed OO.org 2.0.2 packages, but not all at once, because that may cause problems.
 
-
*Begin by right-clicking and selecting "Mark for  Complete Removal" only these 3 files:
 
-
openoffice.org-java-common
 
-
openoffice.org-l10n-common
 
-
openoffice.org-kde
 
-
Once all three have been marked for complete removal, uninstall them by clicking on Apply, then Apply to the dialogue box that pops up.
 
-
*Now click on Search again and enter
 
-
python-uno
 
-
Uninstall it in the same way, again making sure that complete removal is being selected.  This will also remove/purge openoffice-writer
 
-
*Highlight your first search results again in the left-hand panel, and select
 
-
openoffice.org-l10n-en-us
 
-
Completely remove it in the same manner as before. This will remove and purge calc, common, core, draw, impress and math as well.
 
-
 
-
'''NOTE''': Don't worry about the dpkg-warnings that appear about 'directories not being empty'. (You won't need them as 2.2 installs in a different location)
 
-
 
-
=== 2 : Preparation of Sources ===
 
-
*First we have to make sure that ONLY the following NEW repository (which holds the version 2.2 packages) is enabled in /etc/apt/sources.list by checking Settings --> Repositories
 
-
 
-
deb http://apt.mepis.org/contrib32-6.5/ mepis main
 
-
 
-
Again: '''make sure that all other repos are UNCHECKED'''.
 
-
 
-
=== 3: Installation of new OpenOffice.org 2.2 ===
 
-
*Ready to go?  With Synaptic open, click Reload, so that the package list is refreshed.
 
-
*Select New and type in the Search area:
 
-
openoffice.org-
 
-
A list of all available new OO.org 2.2 packages should appear.
 
-
*Select, mark and install ONLY this package:
 
-
openoffice.org-base
 
-
'''NOTE'''; with the openoffice.org-base package several core packages (01 through 08) will be installed as well.
 
-
*Now select, mark and install these:
 
-
openoffice.org-core09
 
-
openoffice.org-core10
 
-
openoffice.org-pyuno
 
-
openoffice.org-javafilter
 
-
*Once that is done, select, mark and install these:
 
-
openoffice.org-calc
 
-
openoffice.org-debian-menus
 
-
openoffice.org-draw
 
-
openoffice.org-impress
 
-
openoffice.org-kde-integration
 
-
openoffice.org-math
 
-
openoffice.org-writer
 
-
*All done! OO.org 2.2 is now installed under /opt/openoffice2.2
 
-
If you want you may install some or all of the still remaining packages: openoffice.org-emailmerge, openoffice.org-graphicfilter, openoffice.org-gnome-integration, openoffice.org-testtool and openoffice.org-xsltfilter.
 
-
=== 4 : Restoring your original /etc/apt/sources.list ===
 
-
*Check all the 'standard' repos (Ubuntu, MEPIS, and medibuntu if you need it) again and uncheck the contrib32-6.5 mepis repo.  Or you can use the [[Editing_sources.list|command line method]].
 
-
'''NOTES'''
 
-
#DO NOT remove the contrib32-6.5 repo; just disable it in /etc/apt/sources.list.  You may need it later on.
 
-
#DO NOT install updates for Openoffice '''2.0.2''' packages from there later on, should such updates appear now that you have restored the regular Ubuntu repos.
