I noted that the simple sequence of

   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install libreoffice
   sudo apt-get install libreoffice-gnome

did not work as described on numerous websites.

All indications suggested that LO would uninstall OO but this did not happen. I kept getting complains regading unfulfilled dependencies that did not make sense.

I eventually used synaptic to remove all packages that were labelled as OpenOffice then tried again. It worked after doing this and was installed within 15 minutes.

I use Ubuntu 10.04 LTR and had latest OO
