LucidLynx 10.04 LTS: Howto reinstall an OpenOffice ubuntu distrib openoffice.org version 1:3.2.0-7ubuntu4.2 after a LibreOffice PPA installation ?

Asked by achevrier on 2012-03-20

Hi.
I'm trying to re-install openoffice.org version 1:3.2.0-7ubuntu4.2 on my Lucid Lynx distrib, after an installation of libreoffice via PPA, but it seems impossible. Here is the return of terminal:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall openoffice.org
...
Les paquets suivants contiennent des dépendances non satisfaites :
  openoffice.org: Dépend: openoffice.org-core (= 1:3.2.0-7ubuntu4.2) mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-writer mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-calc mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-impress mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-draw mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-math mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-base mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-report-builder-bin mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-officebean mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-filter-mobiledev mais ne sera pas installé
                  Dépend: openoffice.org-java-common (>= 1:3.2.0~) mais ne sera pas installé
                  Recommande: openoffice.org-filter-binfilter mais ne sera pas installé
E: Paquets défectueux

It seems libreoffice erased all information, and it is not possible any more to return to the openoffice version delivered in standard with LucidLynx

And ... I really need to go back to the initial configuration, because of terrible bugs wich appeared with LibreOffice, that block me on a daily used professional document ... I'm a bit nervous with this ... I'm sorry ...

I've found the solution.
It's simple: just remove PPA libreoffice installed during lbreoffice PPA process
Then remove and purge libreoffice (see on libreoffice web site the all process)
Then remove and purge openoffice:
-> sudo apt-get remove openoffice.org*
-> sudo apt-get remove --purge openoffice.org-core
Then reinstall openoffice
And it's fine.
