I guess it should be OpenOffice 4.0.1.

Install the deb files from the archive.

I downloaded and then extracted. It said extraction complete. I do not see anything to install deb files.

There will be a folder where you extracted the files. I recommend installing them in terminal so thatbthey can all be installed at the same time.

Will you give more detail on how to accomplish this?

If you run:

sudo updatedb; locate *.deb

OK, I did that, what next.

I did some digging and came up with the following commands:

cd /tmp
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/openofficeorg.mirror/files/4.0.0/binaries/en-US/Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.0_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz
tar -xvf Apache_OpenOffice*.tar.gz
sudo dpkg -i en-US/DEBS/*.deb
sudo dpkg -i en-US/DEBS/desktop-integration/*.deb

I was successful thanks to your help.
