Hi :)

I think the indications are meant to suggest that the user removes OOo.  They do 
usually work fine together but if weird problems and crashes start happening 
then removing one or other usually solves the problems.  

Since both LO and OOo are free and fairly easy to install (and un-install) this 
problem is a lot less of a hassle than it might otherwise be.  The trick is to 
keep the config-folder.  Possibly back-up before uninstalling = otherwise you 
might just get default settings back if you are too rigorous about uninstalling.

Regards from
Tom :)

I noted that the simple sequence of

    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

That's funny, I was able to add LO without an issue and never did "replace" 
OOo, just kind of unseated as the primary suite.  

I had some issue with dependancies now that you mention it, but can't recall 
exactly how I got around it.
