Please help me I've spent hours trying to figure out how to install openoffice on Quantal Ubuntu 12.10 and it is driving me nuts!

There aren't any PPAs on the page you've linked to. Quantal already has Lbre Office installed, is that not good enough? I am not sure OpenOffice has been packaged for Quantal yet. You may want to watch this PPA for updates. –  mikewhatever Oct 20 '12 at 13:01
    
Do you have any specific reason for using OpenOffice instead of LibreOffice which is included by default in Quantal? –  Yusuf Felly Oct 20 '12 at 13:03

There is no longer an app called OpenOffice.org. It was renamed to LibreOffice, and it is installed by default on Ubuntu 12.10.

Libre Office is a fork of Open Office and not a renamed application. AFAIK, Open Office still exists and can be installed on Ubuntu and other distros, though its development has been rather slow in the past couple of years. –  mikewhatever Oct 20 '12 at 15:32
