I just finished putting Xubuntu on my laptop and now I want Open Office. I downloaded the file from the Open Office website. I untarred it and put it in a folder on the desktop called "Untarred." It appears to be a Java file. In any event, it created a new folder called ooo300_m15_native_packed-1.en-us.9379. In this folder is another folder called RPMS. There is a file in that folder called ooobasis3.0-core06-3.0.1-9379.i586.rpm. I tried running the rpm -ivh [filename] command and got the following error message:
error: failed dependencies:
ooobasis3.0-core01 is needed by [filename]
Also, in the folder listed above in red, there are two other directories and two files. The directories are "installdata" and "licenses". The two files are called "setup" and "update", neither of which seems to do anything. When I double-click on the "setup" file, I get this message:
Error: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) not found in directory: RPMS (exit code 4)
What gives? I can't find that file at rpmfind.net. Not sure what to do.
Also, the RPMS File Manager will show me the rpm file and when I double-click it I get the following error:
rpm2cpio: /home/michael/Desktop/untarred/OOO300_m15_native_cpio: premature end of archive.
I am lost. I was under the impression that I could download OO and all would be well in the Land of Oz when I tried to install the program. No such luck.
