I removed OpenOffice.org and installed LibreOffice about a month ago. LibreOffice cannot spell-check and i would like to go back. However Ubuntu gives me dependency problems and I cannot reinstall the OOO suite.
1 - Firstly, go to the OpenOffice website: http://download.openoffice.org/other.html and download the Linux .deb file.
2 - Once you have done that, extract the .deb file, OOo_3.3.0_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-GB.tar.gz then you'll see a file called OOO330_m20_native_packed-1_en-GB.9567
3 - You can remove the existing version of OpenOffice if you wish with this command:
sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*
4 - Copy and paste OOO330_m20_native_packed-1_en-GB.9567 onto the desktop then open Terminal and paste this command:
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO330_m20_native_packed-1_en-GB.9567/DEBS/*.deb
5 - Then paste this command:
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/OOO330_m20_native_packed-1_en-GB.9567/DEBS/desktop-integration/openoffice.org3.3-debian-menus_3.3-9556_all.deb
Once you've done that you'll find OpenOffice 3.3.0 in Office.
If you want to remove LibreOffice then the command to copy and paste into Terminal is
sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*
